As previously mentioned, it was the result of a lazy day in May 2006 that had me enter the word 'Knightmare' into Google and see how far I could go before I ran out of results. After the first couple of pages there were few interesting results left, mostly mirrors of the Wikipedia article and websites unrelated to the show. After what I think was 20+ pages, I found Richard's website and couldn't believe what he had for sale.
This is the email he sent me after I asked if it was still available.
I immediately confirmed the sale and pointed him to this website, and on sending me his details he replied with this:Hi Billy ,
Many thanks for your email . It is good to hear from a 'Knightmare' fan .
Yes I do have the original script for sale . The price is £20 plus £4 postage. It is for the Knightmare Pilot which was taped on 27/28th January 1987 .
I played the part of the Monk + C/K Guardian . My part involved me asking the adventurers a number of questions for them to advance to the next level . It involved two days shooting .
On the second occasion which involved 4 days work I played an invisible swordsman . For this I was dressed in a skin tight blue suit (looking like a rather peculiar Spiderman) and filmed against a blue screen . I was wielding a scimitar so the effect on screen was just a sword moving around . With today's Computer Generated Images it does seen very basic now . However at the time it was quite ground-breaking and exciting work .
I hope the above information is of interest .
Once again many thanks for getting in touch .
Best Wishes ,
I did (perhaps rather cheekily) also ask him if he had any other KM memorabilia, but the script was the only thing he had :pI have just visited the Knightmare web site . Very impressive . It is interesting that people are still enthusiastic about a show that was made some time ago . Please feel free to share any information with other enthusiasts .
After some years the full script finally made it on this website, and it remains to this day one of my most treasured KM possessions. I will forever be thankful to him for allowing a previously unknown part of Knightmare's history to be shared by all.
