Re: Joanne Heywood in Tesco Food Love Stories advert

Welcome back to the zone, Harvey! I remember you describing Joanne Heywood's Activia advert as 'quite a gig' and you could say the same here. It's certainly a big marketing campaign that Joanne is fronting. Perhaps her experience of young quartets on Knightmare gave her an edge. I wonder who's done ...

In Tesco's new Food Love Stories advert, Rita's 'Rowdy' Enchiladas, Rita looks suspiciously like an actress called Joanne Heywood...

Re: Unintended Knightmare references on TV

Star Trek: Picard has so far featured elf portals a.k.a. teleportation doorways (though admittedly older Star Trek episodes had examples, plus the obvious transporter pads) and a corridor with blocks that seem to slide from one wall to the other, reminding me of Knightmare's Block & Tackle.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

With Corbiss the Bemuser contemplating retirement, the 'Magic Great-Uncle' is very slowly seeking someone to succeed him as archmage. An early contender is Jessica, a northern warrior better known as Combat Jess. She withdraws from the contest when it becomes clear that her enemies like her better t...

Re: Unintended Knightmare references in the news

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.

Re: Series 3 - Episode 15

Belated thanks to James for his factual answer in the previous post.

In this episode I like the way that, even though Team 12's quest was to be constrained by time, they got new candles.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Thank you, Robin. That's most kind of you. I'm glad that my enjoyment and catharsis in writing it has been shared by people reading it.

Despite being axed, negotiations are underway for a few specials between now and April. Perhaps a spin-off will be commissioned too...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

The race to lead the Powers That Be enters its final phase. Beaujolais de Pfeffel sets out to charm the dungeon folk with a new jester's cap. He hears people appreciatively shouting "Coxcomb!" but wonders why they stop before the "scomb" bit. Corbiss the Bemuser, taking a cue from watchers, tries to...

Parody of Twist in My Sobriety by Tanita Tikaram

I believe I've now written over 200 of these Knightmare song parodies. This one is based on the longer version of Twist in My Sobriety by Tanita Tikaram (1988). I've included links to relevant (official) clips where possible. Official audio ; lyrics via Google [ Series 4 Quest 1 ] All the children n...

Re: Series 5 Episode 1

On this first flight for Smirkenorff ( here's an official clip ), perhaps the saddle hasn't been properly adjusted as Kathryn slides about a bit during the landing... The middle advisor Fay Keenan is now a successful author. Here's her website. In an old tweet about Knightmare, Fay refers to 'outtak...

Re: Hello There!

The news of a weekly chat has unlocked a long forgotten memory from the recesses of my mind! I remember, in about 2000ish, there was an online quest each week which was housed in a chatroom somewhere. The only details I can remember is that someone played Treguard and set the scene for a contestant...

Re: Who did the theme tunes for series 4 and 6?

I didn't know about Hordriss appearing in the Dizzy game! That's cool :) (The game is "Dizzy and Seymour - Kingdom Gems", apparently.) Yes. After playing it, I pointed out to Yolkfolk.com that Hordriss hadn't been credited. They should now have rectified that. I then learned that Treguard appeared ...

Re: Who did the theme tunes for series 4 and 6?

Welcome back, GrandDizzy. Since you last posted here, Hordriss has appeared in a Dizzy fangame and the Oliver Twins have played Knightmare Live! You ask a good question which sadly we don't know the answer to. A shame The Quest didn't have an article about the 1992 theme tune remix as that might hav...
