Re: Knightmare urban myths

No advisors, after being asked "Where am I?" simply ever answered with just "You're in a room" did they? They always elaborated, but seeing how much the four-word phrase gets quoted you'd think they didn't. "Dickon's got the horn, master!" seems to be very famous for so...

Re: Knightmare Live - Edinburgh - August 2013

Hope you both enjoy the show! Any chance of doing a review of it or basically if it's good. I'm sure it will be! Will do! Billy, do you still anticipate being in a position to write a review of Knightmare Live once you've seen it? I understand that August will be busy for you, with your Lexicon ent...

Re: Update from Tim Child

This thread is from 2005 and is about an earlier attempt at reviving the show.

Tim's latest thoughts about the show's future can be read in the Wired article about the Youtube show at http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/201 ... -geek-week .

Re: Series 2 - Episode 4

Also, just realised - this was the first episode of Knightmare shown in my lifetime, having been born the previous Saturday. Hurrah :D

Re: Update from Tim Child

So, was VR to Knightmare what the 1996 Paul McGann movie was to Doctor Who? :) Looking like it!

Celebrity contestants

Stuart Ashens (who was the only one I knew of before the announcement!) was at least a big fan of the show in its heyday, being about 10-15 years older than the rest of his team so I'm sure he'll do it - ahem - justice, as will Isy Suttie ( major KM fan who's worked songs and jokes about the show in...

Re: Series 2 - Episode 4

What a bizarre episode and what an easy quest so far. No riddles after Igneous, no major room challenges and sending the lovely message to kids that you can get past anyone by either bribing or lying to them. Lillith and Merlin at least finished the ep with their dignity intact although even then th...

Knightmare in the Evening Standard

The crowd outside the studio are clearly in their teens and unless they've seen the Challenge repeats would have no idea what the hell Knightmare even is, and are probably just there because of the youtube stars. Still good to see it getting lots of attention though :) Here's a small if fun writeup ...

Re: Press release photo

The only time I've ever heard or seen 'Knighties' being used was by forum member HStorm in a 2007 post, and that was as a joke.

Re: Press release photo

So that's Hugo, Mark Knight and Cliff Barry all back at least, along with a surprise return for Nick Collett who played two characters (Despair and, erm, Lissard) in, of all things, the 2004 Knightmare VR pilot! He was also in Timebusters so goes back a fair way with Tim. Also, Emma Blackery (the fe...

Re: Knightmare urban myths

A comment on the recent Guardian article: "My big sister was on it. Youngest team ever, apparently. *Whisper it* The boys on before them 'died' twice and the producers let them redo it as they didn't think my sister's team had a chance of getting through. Which was pretty apt, as they couldn't ...

Re: Press release photo

I've been posting on this forum (and previous incarnations) on and off since the year 2000. This is the best year in Knightmare's history since the show finished in 1994. No question. 2004 was perhaps the previous holder with the last Challenge repeats, KMVR pilot, Dick & Dom etc, but if 2013 ha...
