Re: Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

Thank you all for your insights on this topic. We met our predecessors: team seven of series four. They had clearly been told not to tell us anything about the game, and it was pretty soon after we arrived on the Monday afternoon that, as they returned from a filming session, one of the boys declare...

Knightmare Games: goblin miniatures

The Spanish company Knightmare Games sells a variety of fantasy miniatures, including goblins. Among them are a Samurai Goblin and a Goblin Witch, which in Knightmare Series 6 would have constituted most bizarre lovechildren.

Gruagach and Merlin in Hellboy (2019)

The new Hellboy film, out next month, will feature the character Gruagach. Unlike the mysterious evil being in the first Knightmare book, this Gruagach is referred to as an 'iconic pig-fairy villain'. There are some glimpses of it in the trailers. Merlin will also be a character in the film, played ...

Re: Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

Teams 4 & 5 of Series 5 were an interesting case. Both were from Exeter; Team 4 completed Level 3; Team 5 lost on Level 1; they not only met but travelled home together too. Ray from Team 4 shared a photo ( on Knightmare.com ) showing both teams on the train; Andrea from Team 5 has shared a photo (v...

Parody of Running in the Family by Level 42

They've got Level in their name so maybe this was inevitable. A parody of Level 42's Running in the Family (1987). Official live video , lyrics Treguard could send us to our doom We'd say, "You're in a room" We said it then, we said it later All day we'd be putting food in stock For our life force c...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

What happened to the Anode of Power used to free Hordriss in Quest 3 of Series 7? Left behind, it was recovered by the grayling also seen in that quest. Later he offered the Anode to Queen Maldamay, plus a contract with the Dunswater Boatman for a fleet of boats even though he has only one. In retur...

You've given us plenty to add to your 'Hear from the team' page ! Thank you. In case you haven't seen them, there are some official ITV c...

Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

What kind of interaction did you have with the Knightmare teams immediately before or after yours? For example, we know from Dan (Series 7 Team 7) that his team 'got on so well with the team before us (Julie, Sam, Helen & Helen) that a couple of 'inter-team' relationships ensued and many holidays to...

Knightmare in TV listings (1980s and 1990s)

Creating a new topic following these posts: Somebody has tweeted the TV listings from 21st December 1990 . I haven't seen that many of these tv listings for Knightmare since their original publication. I wonder if this is the first one to name the team members in it? I recall seeing a TV listings sc...

Parody of We Built This City by Starship

Our Christmas Number 1 for 2018 is a song parody: We Built This City ...on Sausage Rolls. Here's my version of the same song i.e. We Built This City by Starship (1985). It gives credit to Knightmare's actors of multiple parts and its man of magnificent art. Music video (did Knightmare Series 3 take ...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Few people have noticed that within the Opposition is a growing threat rooted in centuries past. Unless Maldamay or Corbiss can stop this arcane power, all may have to look upon Moggrees and tremulate... No one is quite sure where Moggrees came from. Some say he and his henchmen were summoned as a ...

Re: Where did Mogdred go?

From The Quest Volume 3.2:

Merlin sending himself and Mogdred back to the Dark Ages could have been a paradox that brought them into Knightmare, rather than taking them out of it.

A variation on something I wrote for the Knightmare Roleplay Forum in May 2014. Based on the the opening theme to The Big Bang Theory by Barenaked Ladies (2007). The kids' TV world was such an old dull place But 1987 was the year there came a furry face He opened up the halls With all the wizards, w...
