Twice:
Series 3 Team 10
Series 5 Team 2

Both occasions were when the dungeoneer tried bribing to save themselves, but alas to no avail  ;D

I can't believe people don't love Series 3 Team 10 as much as I do. I think their last scene is my favourite in the whole of Knightmare. I just think it's the funniest thing, and then there's the really creepy and vaguely disturbing death itself. Hugo M. is just fantastic: when the team get the dungeoneer to shout out "Who's there!" to the approaching goblins, then try and offer the little blighters "a present", I think I'd have just cracked up in his place. :D

And when, in response to their asking "Who's there?", Treguard says "I think it's goblins", I just crack up even more. I can't watch that scene without laughing. But when they actually die I always feel strangely guilty. It can't be a very pleasant death, being clubbed by the little critters.

Thank goodness they cut to the Life Force before the goblins actually did it  ;)

Yes, and Treguard seemed particularly protective with all the advice not to look. A real change to a his reaction to a few teams' demise, where he seems to almost delight in their undoing.

Yeah - not even "Ooooh...nasty...." was enough for this one - he had to really emphasize the horror with "Oh...oh that IS nasty!"

Can u remember the name of their leader? in later eps? i remember he did killed a team off with his goblins,

I think the goblins shood be used more, or at least make the teams think their comeing might speed things up a bit :)

Scarkill rocked nuff said and yes that series 3 team 10 thing had me laughing as did team 2s death on series 5 I was laughing before he blew the horn as i had a feeling it was gonna be a  goblin horn lol.
(It was kinda obvious when he hinted he wanted gold that they had screwed up)


Hmm i remember in series 5 once i belive in one of the forest scenes a different Horn sounding off on one episode but we never saw what it was .......

I thought it was really funny when the Hobgoblin turned up in Hordriss' classroom...

Side note: (in case this hasn't come up already) Rayner Bourton, the actor who played Skarkill and Julius Scaramonger, was also in the original 1973 production of The Rocky Horror Show. He played Rocky. I'm not sure whether I should be disturbed or not...

I remember a hobgoblin in series 5 - it appeared at the Gate Tower once. I can't remember a series 6 appearance, but there was one in the background in the opening minute of series 8.
Subject to change.
