The Chase: Episode 2 - A fun adventure getting a little silly at times but very good entertainment overall.
19 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review for all 6 parts:

The Chase is a 6 part story beginning with The Executioners.

This adventure features The Daleks chasing the TARDIS through time and space landing up in all sorts of adventures in different times and places. It is basically a fun and purely entertaining story without too much concentration on plot or serious realism. This works well generally but it is never going to be a classic because it is quite silly in places.

Among other things this adventure explains the mystery of the Mary Celeste by landing the TARDIS and Daleks on board the sailing ship before the disappearance of the crew.

This adventure starts solidly and then the fun cranks up making it really good until the rather less satisfying episode 4 where the TARDIS and Daleks are in a 'haunted house' setting interacting with Dracula, Frankenstein's monster etc. This is still fun but goes over the line into silliness slightly too much for my liking. Finally there is a really good concluding part of the story.

All in all just good clean fun.
