Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

The dungeon is reeling after a visit from the Dunwold Thump. Queen Maldamay has cast every known cleansing spell on her hand. She gets rid of the gift left by the New World ogre: a set of metal clubs he uses for hitting balls, or golf as it's known. (Treguard was forced to play golf with Thump and t...

Re: Unintended Knightmare references in our lives

Next month, the University of Greenwich is opening a new student hub called Dreadnought . I wonder if anyone without an ID card has to sacrifice a limb to get in... And would there be room for them? Judging by the highly impressive eyeshield footage , the place is filled with Pixel's (larger, wingl...

Re: RIP Barry Chuckle

Very sad, unexpected news. Many people will fondly remember Barry for a long time to come. There's a pleasing tribute to the Chuckle Brothers in the form of Knighty Knight Mare, a Knightmare crossover written by Billy Hicks in 2004: http://interactive.knightmare.org.uk/component/legacy/page/display/...

Re: Series 4 Individual Team Pages: Team 8

Motley in the Crazed Heifer. Coming from Series 1-3, I couldn't believe all those people were in the studio! According to a comment made by Hugo Myatt when interviewed by Debbie Glover in 2002, the Crazed Heifer involved overlays, suggesting that some of the patrons had been prefilmed. In your case...

Re: Series 7 Episode 6?

This isn't the first time we've seen a team gain a spell from a scroll at the same time as picking up two clue objects, even if it is a first for Majida. (Other examples: Team 3 of Series 5, Team 5 of Series 6.) I don't think there's any bending or breaking of known rules here. After Treguard explai...

I fell off the turn table in the first room. it was nerves really. I stepped on,lost my footing and went off. We went back into the "green room" area and as ...

Re: Anyone - revolving disc in Series 3 and 4

Thank you. If they built a motorised device, that would explain why they reused it in (every quest of) Series 4: they wanted to get their money's worth out of it.

By my count, it was used six times in Series 3 and eight times in Series 4. Or nine times if we include your team's second chance, Brett.

Igneous becomes more and more outspoken. He claims he is still under the influence of the TRUTH spell cast on him in Series 2 but this does not lessen the offence he is causing. Corbiss the Bemuser is urged to act and, though he is fond of the wall monster's redness, he finally responds by turning ...

Anyone - revolving disc in Series 3 and 4

How was the revolving disc in Series 3 (the spindizzy) and Series 4 (the Place of Choice roundabout) operated? Was there a member of the production crew turning it or was it automated?
