Durham 40-1 lead Surrey by 74 runs
Durham lost Keaton Jennings two balls before lunch after 35 minutes of batting in the Chester-le-Street murk took them to 40 for one, leading by 74.
After his unbeaten 201 in the first innings, Jennings lost his off stump to Stuart Meaker for 11, Mark Stoneman remaining unbeaten on 24.
The floodlights were on from the start and after taking one of the three remaining Surrey wickets with the first ball Durham bowled as though they weren't keen to bat.
They finally dismissed Surrey for 367, then Mark Stoneman and Keaton Jennings had 31 on the board after six overs before Mark Footitt replaced Sam Curran.
It was the younger Curran who edged the first ball behind to give Graham Onions his first five-wicket haul of the season, but it took Durham 68 minutes to strike again.
Although he often beat the bat, Onions couldn't shift Gareth Batty or Meaker and finished with five for 90.
Mark Wood kept leaking runs off thick edges until 37 had been added and a third man was finally posted.
There were also some forthright strokes, mainly off the back foot, from both batsmen inbetween the misses.
When Wood made way for Ben Stokes the England all-rounder beat the batsmen three times with in-swingers which narrowly missed the stumps. The first came just after Surrey gained the fourth batting point with Batty on 20.
There were only 14 balls left until the 110-over cut-off when Durham claimed the third bowling point. The stand was worth 62 when Batty had a swish at Brydon Carse and lost his middle stump for 29.
Meaker hooked the exasperated Stokes for six to reach 35, but without addition Footitt slogged a catch to mid-off to give Carse a second wicket.
