Re: Series 8 - Episode 8

I understand that earlier this year, team captain Alan Boyd (Mystara) was introduced to a tree lizard known as a Boyd's forest dragon. Its life expectancy is reportedly five to ten years, so it too might appreciate a joke about being too young for a pension. Motley refers to a joke about the English...

Re: Unintended Knightmare references on TV

After last weekend's Doctor Who, people are wondering who the Timeless Child is. Until we know more, I'm happy to treat it as a nod to Knightmare. You just have to remove the eless.

After the clue area (complete with menacing giant pooka - it's a hard life on L3) comes Hordriss' Level 3 Entrance Examination For Aspiring Sorcerers' Apprentices.
In Series 8, the life force clock changed: we were dealt a pie. Did Hordriss foresee this in Series 6?

Re: Series 5 Episode 5

Sir Hugh tells Sarah that he's just had "a dashed bruising joust ... with this strange fellow I met. He didn't have any arms or legs, this chap. Fought like a paladin though." Could this be a reference to the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail?

Re: Knightmare RPG

[15th anniversary post] I've caught only one session of the RPG so far but I enjoyed it. It was fun to be a watcher again and also to discuss the quest afterwards (what could/should have happened), not unlike our discussions of the TV series. 'RPG', though, seems as much of a misnomer as it was orig...

Re: Series 1 - Episode 8

Just Series 1 I think, but happy to be corrected by anyone who's watched Series 2 more closely. In Series 1, the setup of Mogdred as the anti-Merlin was wasted because no team met Mogdred. In Series 2, it seems he was presented more simply as an evil being to beware of. By my reckoning, six teams in...

Re: Series 5 Episode 14 (Wed. 19th)

It sounds like Chris. Knightmare was first and foremost an adventure for the contestants, so the production team wouldn't have wanted to cut one of them out completely for an extended period - even if, for practical reasons, they couldn't put Chris himself in the goblin costume. I've been rewatching...

Re: Series 1 - Episode 8

Piecing together the various plans and briefs in David Rowe's book, we may now have some idea as to how Richard's quest would have played out ... The name of the room presumably implies that Mogdred would have been summoned instead, perhaps lending support to the theory that the OPPOSITE spell woul...

Re: Where did Mogdred go?

4/8 teams in Series 4 got to Level 3. 2 of those teams faced Mogdred as the adversary (episodes 3 and 16); 1 faced Malice; 1 didn't get far enough to encounter an adversary.

Had more teams got further through their quests, we may well have seen more of Mogdred. The same applies to Series 3.
