Re: Pooka Plush

That was impressive. They still look as sinister as fan creations as they do on the programme.

Re: Happy Groundhog Day

Hadn't even given it a thought until now. The occasion just passed me by. It's an American thing isn't it. Not really celebrated in the UK, not sure of the origins of it all. It's where something repeats itself over and over. If I had my way that would be Knightmare on television every day of the ye...

Re: Radio Times 'top children's programmes of all time'

It's absurd that Knightmare isn't included in the initial list, can only imagine whoever put together the shows presented had never seen an episode of our great programme. Newsround was a strange choice for number 3, can remember it from the 1980s with John Craven, but it's (or was) an information p...

Re: Happy 30th Birthday Knightmare!!

Was still at school when the series first aired but had left when it went off air at the end of it's run. Can remember waiting to get home to see an episode and remember vividly one team in 1990 actually won a quest on my Birthday, it was as good as any card or present. Shame it only survived for se...

Re: Best Series

Other than chosen clips from Youtube, have not viewed the original series in 'proper format' i.e. on a TV broadcast, since the original run in the early 1990's. By this I mean the latter series of the program, from 4 and beyond for example. Therefore it's (often) awkward on specific areas of the pro...

Re: The Goblins

I haven't seen enough of beyond Series 3 or 4 for a (very) long time so can't recall if the Goblins featured so regularly as they did in the formative years of the series. As for being played by us 'girls', who would have thought it ? 8-o I think what we have here is a rare case of where the sounds ...

Re: Series 5 Episode 1

Series 5 ? Has there been an episode this week ? No, Challenge doesn't have the rights to Series 5 at the moment. Well that is a relief, I genuinely thought I'd missed out on episode since last viewing. If Challenge doesn't possess the rights to show as mentioned, then looks like we'll have a wait ...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 16

I think that was me (episode 15). As I recall the Adventurer's Code didn't specifically state that we were not able to say 'I challenge you' from series 4, in the event that we got all three questions correct. Were you an actual contestant on the program ? That's really good, you never stop to thin...

Re: Series 5 Episode 1

Series 5 ? Has there been an episode this week ? Last I saw they were at the end of Series 4 last Sunday and don't believe there's been another episode broadcast in the time since ? I'm referring of course to the Challenge re-runs, but seems unlikely such as one episode follows the other. It would b...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 15

I thought the wailing door (Dooris ?) questions were maybe difficult from what I can remember as was the questions asked by Oakley the Guardian of the Greenwood. Team got more right answers than even I managed on this occasion, but won't one truth alone be enough to pass you ? (Even when the team go...

Re: Series 4 Episode 14

This was the episode that was shown by Challenge this last Sunday. Not always possible to take in a viewing at the 10 am start time but they put on again one repeat episode at 11-30 later that night. (Why not both episodes ?) :( The team came to a premature end with a demise in the block and tackle ...

Re: Series 4, Episode 11

Had a rare opportunity this morning to take in a viewing of the show and to be truthful this is the first time I've probably watched this far into the series on television since it's original broadcast 25 + years ago. One thing you can't escape is the transformation in technology and advancements fr...

Re: The Sixth Doctor

I remember watching the series in the 1980s and Colin Baker was probably the first Doctor that was I was properly introduced to. Peter Davison I think was the one directly after but he only lasted a season or two. Unfortunately by the time of Sylvester McCoy at the end of the decade I had lost a lot...
