Thanks for letting us know more about what makes The Chase tick (TV Guide, October 20-26). Hats off to those who devised the show’s winning format and chose Bradley Walsh as presenter. It is a sublime marriage of humour and knowledge. My favourite Chaser is the seriously funny and clever Paul Sinha. My favourite contestant was the plucky 20-year-old Scarlett. Not only did she have the chutzpah to tell Bradley to behave himself, but she also left The Beast floundering with her mastery of Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando.
