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.

Re: One thing approaches ...

Happy Friday 21st December, everyone! I hadn't realised that: a Friday then, a Friday this year. I can't help but think of you and your team at this time of year, Brett. Somebody has tweeted the TV listings from 21st December 1990 . You were up against Take Two (a programme which had Tim Child as a...

Parody of The Big Bang Theory theme

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...

Hugo Myatt on BBC Radio Norfolk

My favourite anecdote, which I don't recall hearing or reading elsewhere, was about him meeting Sylvester McCoy pr...

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...
