Lets hope so! This goes to show how popular The Old Skool weekend is proving to be. Already enjoying it and not long to Knightmare now!

There was a clip of Hugo Myatt scarily wishing CITV a happy birthday, just before Fun House!

Wow!!! So amazing to see Knightmare again! There was a huge surge in people on the forum too! I hope it has brought some new fans as well as old onto here!

I noted #knightmare was the 2nd highest trend for some time this afternoon! Ace stuff.

It's encouraging, but I wonder how many of the tweet-seekers are nostalgics, and how many are newcomers curious about the series' history. When considering whether KM has a future, my worry is whether the visuals, always one of the great strengths when the series was current, can really cut it for a modern audience, and whether the gameplay is fast enough.

I understand what your saying. If anything it was positive to see so many people say how much they enjoyed it. I believe Knightmare could be released on DVD. Or hopefully Challenge TV will show it again. Either way, i don't think we will see the last of Knightmare after tomorrow.

Oh indeed not. Those of us making fan projects are making sure of that. ;) It's just a question of how big a following KM gets will affect the chances of official material being re-released.

It's all a bit up in the air at the moment.

The DVD project ran in to its own problems of not really having enough support and the rights holders not getting back to me. However, with Challenge currently (allegedly) pursuing the rights, there doesn't seem to be any point in pushing things - and I doubt there would be much support if the entirety of Knightmare were to be re-shown on TV.

But then, Challenge have presumably also been stalled while CITV show the two series 7 episodes.

Add to that, the fact that it's never going to be clear whether Challenge have given up or not, and it's all very difficult to tell what the situation is with anyone, except to say that the demand for something clearly still exists.

Hopefully the level of interest shown on twitter may lead to good news sooner or later. Until there is official news we can still be optimistic. Thanks for the update Alan.

Perhaps this weekend is the perfect time to start pushing the DVD release idea on Facebook groups and the likes? And Aegis Quest and other media projects?

Couldn't agree more. There may not be a better time or opportunity to do this, especially with the feedback on the social networks after Knightmare was shown. Plus the forum and website itself attracted a record amount of people! I'm sure it will be the same again tomorrow.

As always, I completely approve if people want to do that.
