Random Rewind: Chase The Case, BBC One

Random Rewind: we look back at some the best, and occasionally worst, entertainment shows from the past decade.


Chase The Case

2018, BBC One


Chase The Case was a daytime BBC One gameshow, hosted by Dan Walker, which ran for one series starting in September 2018.



Each episode saw five contestants trade general knowledge for information to gain access to a case containing a secret amount of cash.


Players put their knowledge to the test and answer questions to reach the coveted secret vault, where they can learn information about what’s in their opponents’ cases, using 'Peek' and 'More Or Less' options.




Through a process of deduction, the shrewdest of contestants can win big, but not before they succeed in a nail-biting endgame where players attempt to steal each other’s cases via tense head-to-head challenges, which has the potential to cause major upset just as it looks clear who will be champion.



Chase The Case tested 'the mettle of its brave contestants, but ultimately only one can succeed in the chase. Victory will require a fierce grasp of general knowledge, a wily game plan, and a seriously convincing ‘case face’.'


The series was not successful enough to be commissioned for a second series.
