Knightmare and its YouTube Geek Week return are mentioned in today's Sunday Times Culture magazine.

It's no lie that you can't spell Cult TV where contestants tell their blindfolded friend that "you're in a room" without Cult u're. One might regard this as compelling evidence that Knightmare was destined to be mentioned in Culture, The Sunday Times arts and entertainment supplement, at some point. In today's (09.02.14) edition, Benji Wilson interviews Isy Suttie, who played Treguard's assistant Daisy in the 2013 YouTube Geek Week episode of Knightmare

 
'Being tagged as the kooky one has both helped and hindered Suttie. On the one hand, she has proved that if she is weird, she is also distinctly "marketable" - she is best known for playing Dobby in Peep Show, a lovable geek with a penchant for live-action roleplay. Add to that her recent appearance in Knightmare, a remake of the computerised 1980s kids' show that was a central plank of YouTube's Geek Week last year, and you can see why the quirky tag has stuck.'

Isy Suttie will be starring in the musical The A-Z of Mrs P at the Southwark Playhouse from 21st February to 29th March. You may well find yourself shouting, "You central plank!" during episodes of Knightmare, of which you can see two every Saturday morning from 11:00 on Challenge TV. Turn on two hours earlier and you'll get double bills of Fun House and Finders Keepers to boot.
