Storyline

Doug and Tony are transported to the Grand Canyon, Arizona, in 1547. Meanwhile, the saboteur Raul Nimon kills Dr. Alfred Stiles and plants a nuclear bomb with a timing device in the phase synchronizer console; however, the security seals all the exit and Nimon escapes through the time tunnel that is fixed in Doug and Tony. General Kirk orders the scientists to capture Nimon and discover where the bomb is hidden. However the tunnel is out of control and sends the trio to one million years in the future in a society organized like a beehive. However Nimon had arrived ten years before and is building a time machine trying to return to the present days. When the time tunnel personnel tries to transfer the trio to another time, they accidentally brings the soldier Vokar and the worker Zee together to one million years BC. The scientists try to force Nimon to tell where the nuclear device was planted in the last chance to save his friends and themselves. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

At the start of the show at the time tunnel, Raul Nimon shoots a revolver equipped with a silencer. However, while a silencer can work with a pistol, it cannot work on a revolver. Revolvers have a small gap between the cylinder and the barrel of the gun, which is enough to allow the gunshot noise to escape when the revolver is fired. See more »

Probably the Best Episode

"Chase Through Time" is probably the best episode of "The Time Tunnel" with an engaging story of a chase through time. Another attraction is Robert Duvall as a guest star of this show. The futuristic society recalls Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, with disciplined people, workers, soldiers and a master. The stock footage from one million BC seems to be from "The Lost World". My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Túnel do Tempo" ("The Time Tunnel")
