It's amazing those Latex Halloween masks gets more realistic don't they?
It's always the cracked ones that let the light in

Today's Metro 'newspaper' (cough-cough) has an article about Beverley Knight appearing in a stage version of The Bodyguard, and the inevitable comparisons with Whitney Houston that are surely imminent.

The title of the article is, perhaps inevitably, It's a Knight mare trying to be a new Whitney...
Knightmare Audio Plays from The Dunshelm Players.

I did a slight double take reading this article and seeing "Knighthood: David Verey", as my brain automatically misread a couple of words!

This Danish word perfectly describes autumnal Friday evenings spent watching Knightmare!

According to new research, anxiety creates brain activity that causes us to veer left. Further research may be needed to establish whether it causes us to advise others to veer left into gaping holes and such.

Thanks to Knightmare Live, there's more than one Lord Fear around these days. An article from The Times suggests they will benefit from Brexit in their continental misdeeds:

Brexit: European criminals will escape trial, lords fear

The MP Fiona Onasanya has been in the news this week, along with her younger brother Festus.

According to The Times today, Jess Phillips - who has been known to refer to Knightmare in tweets - 'will at least shake up the [Labour leadership] campaign by asking tough questions and injecting much needed vim.'

Not unlike Merlin in Series 3 then.

A mysterious headline from Australia's Newcastle Herald today:

Hard Yards, Chapter 30: Knightmare season ends Tinkler's reign of error

Knightmare's 30th team (Team 11, Series 3) did rather well, so it can't be about them. Maybe it's dissing an advisor from another team. If so, tinkler would be less "you're in a room", more "urine a room".

Less a reference, more a reminder:

There's been news today of police breaking up a rave in the Forest of Dean. The image of ravers fleeing in the forest made me think of Giles dashing from goblins in the Forest of Dunn in Series 4.

In the Forest of Dean
The dancers convene
And though they may rave
They seldom behave

Predating that was the following Times article from 2014:

Lords fear cheap fizz in Commons

It conjures an image of Mark Knight and Tom Bell mingling with MPs as they break out the bubbly.
