It's all in the Knightmare VR section. TeleVirtual is developing a new series. Granted, it's still in early pre-production but the very fact that it's happening makes me very optimistic! All that is needed is a commission and, as I said before, with Km's reputation, continuing demand and fanbase, I would rank the chances of it making it to our screens as extremely high.

Knightmare on DVD?  Yipee!  I'm getting a DVD player for the TV soon anyway, so I'll definately be buying that when (and if *crosses fingers*) it comes out.  I hope the new series of Knightmare gets the go-ahead, hopefully with Hugo Myatt and Mark Knight back in their legendary roles.

Essential; just wouldn't be knightmare without them!

I've read the comments about tape piracy and I agree that people selling these tapes on eBay for massive profits should be reported.  However, I think it's a shame that some people have stopped copying tapes for others just for the cost of the video and postage.  I know that I have had "illegal" copies of other series like this in the past but it has never stopped me from buying the official release on VHS or DVD when it comes out.  The quality is obviously going to be better and, in the case of DVDs, there will be extra features too.

Having just discovered this site recently I was hoping to be able to get a copy of some of the series, but unfortunately it looks like that is no longer going to be possible.  It's a real shame, especially now that Challenge have stopped showing it.

Oh well, hopefully there will be a proper release some day!

Hello there!

Actually, negotiations are currently underway with Challenge. They want to acquire series 4. I reckon there'll be an announcement any day now so stick around - there may be some very good news coming our way!

I am slightly excited, but not overly excited (jumping up and down, doing somersaults) until either happen for definate. I am not holding my breath either, that would be very nasty indeed!

Well, there are so many possibilities that the chances are SOMEONE will allow us to watch KM again.

I know im bumping this one up after a long time, but i was absent from forum for while and now im back!! anyway, i think its almost given that KM has a huge following and would do well on DVD - ratings are good on Challenge. KM is not a gameshow - it is an adventure - a spectacle - in tape trading ceasing, the demand for DVD will be greater - for those who were going to buy them - ppl like me  ;D - it is like taking the door away from us - so close, but gone! BVA assure Granada that we will buy releases, and if Illusion, Debz, Mark Knight, Hugo and GG (where are you?!? Get back!!!) could have a commentary on it i would happily pay £18 for a DVD!!

i know almost everyone here feels the same.

basicly, those without knightmare episodes can get them easily and legally with a profit to the makers...etc

if the makers are worried about piracy having shrunk the market look at it this way...if they were big enough fans to go to the trouble of getting all these tapes copied. they are def. big enough fans to see the advantages in DVD quality + extras if there are any.

More Knightmare Tapes on Ebay

Someone else is trying to sell Knightmare tapes on Ebay, I've emailed them to suggest that they remove the item, but I don't know how much good it will do.

The description is interesting:

"This rare chance to see one of the best kids TV programmes shown on ITV in the early 1990's- this home recorded video contains the whole of Series 3 which is over 6 hours of tape. Sound is not brilliant but audible and there are advert breaks in between episodes."

Hang on, maybe I have been asleep for the past two years, but hasn't it been on Challenge with about three repeats...oh and I am certain that it's due on again soon! A rare chance indeed!
