I remember coming home from school, and running to the TV to watch Knightmare. I went to boarding school, so I never got many chances to watch it, but I must have seen 10 or more episodes in my lifetime, and I've always wanted MORE (I love the program!!!) Now there is this site to show that, although Knightmare is off-air, it is certainly NOT dead.

Maybe it'll be shown again one day.

A Great Site! Please can you put up some movies though? Other than that, brilliant!

I am very impressed with this site. David Rowe (the illustrator) is my dad! I remember when he used to always be up through the night airbrushing and painting those rooms. It is weird to see people saying they were honoured to get a letter from Tim Child because I remember going to his house when I was younger. I think this is a great site anyway, it makes me feel very proud.

This site is great!! I'd forgotten all about Knightmare (I used to run home to watch it too!) but when I heard that music it all came back!! I think I saw EVERY episode made, even though it ran until I was 18.... I loved the little tables with the food + spells but I'd forgotten Romahna(?) & Stiletta! How could I?!

PS. Pickle was soooo sexy!

I remember Knightmare it was brilliant and i used to get scared by the man who sat by the fire and I used to wonder how come the boy or girl who was killed in the castles suddenly came back to life afterwards

This is such a brill website, the memories of this brilliant series come flooding back. It's great to be able to see once again such characters as Treguard, Hordriss, Lillith the ice queen, Merlin, Lord Fear and even that strange little elf Pickle. It's the nearest we'll probably come to seeing them again seeing as no TV station seems to have the guts to reshow it. I couldn't wait to finish school on Fridays to see it, but as soon as you really got into it it was over and the contestants were frozen in time for a week.

Remember the only way is onwards, there is no turning back....

This really is a great site. Knightmare used to freak me out when I was a kid.

Knightmare is cool! I wish so much it would come back, especially the earlier series which I didn't see. Series 4 and 5 were the best I reckon. 1 question - under the clips section, where are the video clips??

I remember this show well, it used to get me very excited when it came on! Pity it had to end. Also a pity is the fact that none of the sound clips on your page work! But a great site nonetheless!

Great website on the Knightmare game show (about time too.) Only one thing to say and I can see that most people agree with me: BRING BACK Knightmare!!!

God damn, this site is good. I have some (ex-) school friends who were in Knightmare, though I'm not in touch any more. Matthew Reid, Phillip Jolliffe and Andrew (can't remember his name....how time flies!). Fat bloke, anyway. They died on the second level, they told me. It was the spider, I think, but I can't remember for sure.

Hey, I'm in Nicholas' A-level IT class (Nicholas is the designer) and I am happy to say that I was one of the die hard fans of Knightmare. When will it be on again? Any chance of a new series? Sadiki

When Series 1 was first shown, I was 22. I was instantly addicted, as were most of the people I worked with, so much so that when we were tired towards the end of the working day we would often exclaim "life force energy low...". I remember the first team ever to win the game! I was visiting my sister in Lincoln, and the whole family was watching. We had been following the team over a couple of shows, and when they won, the house erupted! Must go, I can feel a temporal disruption approaching!

This has to be the best tribute site to any any TV programme on the Internet. The site has absolutely everything there is to know about Knightmare - WELL DONE!

My congratulations on a great website. I remember Knightmare very well, and was glad to see a site devoted to the subject. If it is of any interest to you, I MAY still have recordings of the early series i.e 1st, and I also have an episode of KELLYVISION, which looked behind the scenes of Knightmare and showed some of the techniques used in the series.

Keep the site updated! Regards

I'd just like to say that this is a fab web site about a fab show. Knightmare was and still is the best game ever. Nothing can even come close to beating it. I've only ever seen Series 4-8 and Series 5 is my favorite. Hopefully one day it will return. Keep up the good work.

I have to say i'm very impressed with it!! Keep up the good work.

This was my absolute favorite programme when I was little, and I think I must have watched every single episode. Then, a Friday afternoon always meant Knightmare at my nan's house. I never thought there would be so many people that still love it.

Hi, I don't know, what's the game show Knightmare about, but I realized that you know Fort Boyard as well. I am a very big fan of Fort Boyard since 1990. And I even made a Fort-Boyard-Homepage with many pictures of all the games in the cells. Well, if you're a fan of Fort Boyard, then visit my page.

Knightmare!!!! Wow, i had forgotten it existed up until recently... but it was the bestest thing ever. Well... they kind of sold out during the end. Hahaha, but the music... the nostalgia... I wish I was 10 again!!

I thought that Knightmare was a very good program. It is good to find a site dedicated to it, after The Eye Shield stopped being produced. Your site is a lot better than a few of the others I have been to recently

Hi Nicholas, Good luck with your A-Levels

I know I've already signed the guest book, but hey this is a cool site, and Knightmare is a cool show. It is the best of the best. If anyone wants to know anything about Knightmare, especially the later series please e-mail me.

What a great blast from the past!!

Me and three friends traveled to Norwich one Saturday in either '91 or '92 to be interviewed for one series - we couldn't even bloody manage that!! We were probably the most dysfunctional team ever!! Anyway, that was just before the series got all c*****. Keep up the good work!

I loved Knightmare! I *so* wanted to be on it. How sad that they axed it... *sniff sniff*. But great site though...

Knightmare was my favorite childhood show. Not only I would watch it but my Gran and Aunty too. It spanned many generations and I have never understood why it was taken off our screens. My favorite rooms were the ones with scorpions or bombs in them. Bring Back Knightmare!

Knightmare was the best RPG game ever. I use to record every program but they were taped over. The only remaining tapes are stacked in the loft!!

I watched the final episode! it was great, just like seeing it all over again! Any chance of getting some more episodes on here?

On the Channel 4 site forum board, some of us have been discussing the cable channels that might show Knightmare. I emailed Challenge TV but they said it wasn't the kind of show they are there for... Hello? Isn't the Crystal Maze also an adventure game show?? And those old Strike it Lucky shows and Family Fortunes... Come on! Who the hell is gonna watch them?

So, now we are thinking of UK Gold but they show more dramas and soaps... Sci-Fi channel already ditched it (scum) so who else? Sky One? They only have new stuff... GOD! Someone must wanna show this ace programme! it was POPULAR - it was a winner! Why is there no interest?

Thank you for letting me drive down the cracked road called nostalgia. It's been fun, good site. I've also given the address to some friends so they'll probably write in here too some time. I'm glad it's not just us folks that thought it was a cool program (remember the cartoon knight-on-horse opening). I hope you get the re-runs and new episodes that you guys want...

Er... um... What about TRANSFORMERS. Anyway enough of this. Cheers!

What everyone on this site should do is e-mail Challenge TV to reshow Knightmare and show them just how many people want this excellent series repeated. Problem is that I have tried over and over again at the address on their (rather pathetic) site This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and my mail keeps getting returned to me. Does anyone out there have an address for them that actually works. According to the Ch.4 Knightmare thread, a Knightmare petition is being started, I suggest that everyone in this guestbook and on the Ch.4 thread signs this, these withdrawal symptoms are too much for me.

After a conversion last night in bar about our shows that should be reproduced for the year 2000. I came up with Knightmare. Which triggered me to find this website today. I tell you it brings back the memories from Friday afternoons at around 4.40. Brilliant website, keep it up. I will be putting on my own website soon which is dedicated to 'The Cobblers' NTFC. Which will feature the usual footie things plus aside section on techno, orbital, music. And it will include a link to this page.

SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN AXED. KNIGHTMARE, DR. WHO AND THE ADVENTURE GAME ON BBC2 ARE SOME OF THE MOST VIVID MEMORIES I HAVE OF CHILDHOOD. ANYONE REMEMBER THE DROGNA GAME?

Well done on this website - it rocks! My favorite bad guys were always the mechanical warriors, although Sylvester Hands was cool, as was Mr. Fear! Does anyone have Videos of any Knightmare shows (especially the early ones!)? If anyone can help, contact me via e-mail!

Are their any Knightmare fans out there who are also map makers for the Macintosh game Marathon? I'm considering starting a Marathon total conversion based on Knightmare.

1) Any chance of interaction, like an opinion poll asking the fans what their favourite series or characters were?

2) MOST IMPORTANT: Anyone, ANYONE at all who has even ONE episode of Knightmare on tape, send me an email and I will rent it from you! We can negotiate a price, and you'll have my address so I'll have to send it back! I will offer more for earlier episodes as they were better! So if you need so spare cash in that flat pocket of yours, and u have the tapes. Email me now!!!

I don't suppose it did any good but I emailed ITV2 and pressed strongly for this to be shown. These new digital kids channels sound like the way forward though. I will need to get them sorted if Knightmare is gonna be shown - has anyone got in contact with them yet?

I watched Knightmare from the first series and I was hooked! It was so amazing! This site is amazing! I hope the quest to Bring Back Knightmare is a success as this is one programme I would like to see back on our screens!

I am glad to see that I am not the only Knightmare fan out there. Unfortunately I only managed to catch the last four series from 1991-4 I believe (I would have been 15 in 94) Heaven only knows what I was doing with my life for the previous four years (BBC I think). I wasn't too pleased when the show was axed, although I must say that the last series didn't quite match the quality of the previous ones. If anyone out there has any info on whether ITV (or any other channel for that matter) are planning any reruns or new series, please let me know. And remember take the right path wherever possible!

I had a discussion with all my friends and they all agreed that Knightmare was one of the coolest programmes ever made. Most of them hated the last series saying that nearly all the rooms were the same. I thought that the 5th, 6th and 7th series really were the best. It is so tight that nobody wants such a classy programme as Knightmare. I'm going to sit in a corner and sulk now until one of these crappy channels takes it.

Knightmare rocked. At least, the first series did, it started to get sh** after a while when they gave the bloke with the beard all those really irritating helpers and totally changed the game. It was really scary when they had that thing with bits of the helmet peeling away as a health meter, and then the face came away too and all the people outside would yell "DRINK THE HEALING POTION!!!" or something.
