Re: Series 8 - Episode 3

When Daniel enters the Sewers of Goth, Majida says "That Skelly-thing - we don't hear it any more." Treguard explains that Skeletrons won't enter the sewers as they don't like water. Weirdly, Majida then says again "You know these Skelly-things, Treguard - we don't see them any more, or hear them", and is interrupted by Sly Hands' arrival.
Did Jackie Sawiris forget she'd already said that line? Or did Sly perhaps enter prematurely, so they filmed that conversation later and someone just screwed up the editing? The latter seems more likely to me.

Majida's first reaction to Linghorm is "This is incredible! Magnificent!" - she's certainly changed her tune since complaining that Goth looked far too computer-generated. :P ("This horrid place! The walls, they're not right! Nothing is right!") They're all getting the taste for technomagic now...

Again, just watched it with the boy - some thoughts and observations.

I thought the way the dungeoneer actually PLEADED with his advisors to use the fearsome potion was odd. Did a crew member whisper 'Listen you - drink the potion or you die.' perhaps because they were taking an age to decide what to do?

Gideon must have been told to let the other advisors get more involved, but then the lad on the left couldn't describe the moving floor and it was handed back to Gideon again. At another point he said to Gideon 'Tell him to ---' - like he'd been forbidden to talk to the dungeoneer - the team dynamics are fascinating!

Honesty Bartram was a well acted 'wide boy' character. I liked how he never ruled out the key as a possible trade.........

A good episode though,without hindsight they looked liked winners!

One of the advisors said this in an interview:
"Daniel always did as he was told, except when he was told not to! The part where he transformed into Lord Fear was led by him. The production team told him that no matter what, he had to make sure we got him to drink the potion. (I think they wanted to show off the effects!)"

Ah interesting! I wonder how many times that happened on the series? (ie the team not really having a free choice after all.)

I will certainly have to review all the episodes to know how many dungeoneers pleaded with the advisors. By the way, what about Lord Fear saying that Bhal-Shebah's guard duty was only as good as a gerbil? Would Daniel had been able to just get the sword and leave? If so, then I think I know what the argument would have been about in Episode 4 had his team survived the blades. An argument is impossible to happen without a subject! :question:
