Re: Series 4 - Episode 16

Thanks very much, James - I'll take a look.

Re: Series 4 - Episode 16

Dear Morghanna, Thank you for your insightful and sympathetic reflections (it was Andrew who said, "write that down", in fact - and probably not for the first time!). "It has been stated that team 8 failed the block&tackle, but were allowed to continue. However, there was little logic in the produce...

Re: Series 4, Episode 11

I tend to think Fatilla's two references to, "old skull-face" (he says something similar to team 7) were a proto-reference to Lord Fear, Morghanna. In episode 16, Brother Mace said, "People round here don't like being spied on by magic shields; I must tell you!" which also anticipates series 5-8. Th...

Re: Series 4 Episode 10

The Series IV Adventurer's Code referred to neutral characters, which it seems would include Melly and Gundrada (probably Mistress Goody, too) - noting that, at first, you wouldn't know who fitted into which category (the implication being, perhaps, that you might like quickly to find out or decide)...

Re: Series 4 Episode 3

In many ways, when you think about it, this is a classic fiendish Knightmare puzzle: as an adviser, there's little you can do except to suggest the timing of your dungeoneer's vault; as the dungeoneer, blindfolded and launching off - as Drassil put it - a roundabout. It was the only scene we filmed ...

Re: Series 4 Episode 3

Giles (team 8 dungeoneer) mentioned he noticed the whirr of the motor from the beginning of the scene, before filming started - but the machinery could have had an analogue speed setting that was set slightly differently each time the device was set up.

A VIKING spell, Morghanna? Surely not Olaf ?!

Re: Series 4 - Episode 1

Hi Morghanna, I agree with you about the Weeping Doors. Not so slow when you're actually playing the game and under pressure to get the correct answers, but a bit of a drag to watch at home. If the misery-mood were changed to something more dynamic, it would perhaps have been more enjoyable viewing....

Re: Questions for Brett (Series 4 Team 8)

Hi everyone,

I am sorry for the delay in responding to these questions and comments: I hope you are all well …

Unfortunately, I don't remember what I received for Christmas 1990, Drassil. I enjoyed reading your remarks and on Ernie and Erik, Mashibinin, too.

Best wishes,
Brett

Questions for Brett (Series 4 Team 8)

Hi AriadnesLayer, Thank you for your questions: I have enjoyed revisiting our quest, nearly thirty years on from that gilded age of adventures. In these troubled months with the Covid-19 pandemic, it's just a shame the fabled Cup that Heals remains unretrieved to this day ... >> You mentioned in a p...

Re: Unused Hero Spell - to summon "one long dead to your cause."

Hi Ariadne's Layer,

E.g. towards the end of episode 15.

Yep, you can ask me some questions ...

Re: Unused Hero Spell - to summon "one long dead to your cause."

I think it would have summoned a FrightKnight from that series.

The design of the quest

For series four, the Adventurer’s Code described Level 1 as very much a ‘learning level’ (Level 2 was described as something like ‘more challenging’ and Level 3 the ‘final proving ground’). With hindsight, it is interesting to reflect how Motley and then Mellisandre prepared us for our encounter wit...

Re: Series 4 graphics reimagined

Hey, I've just realised you were a contestant! I will have to do some screens from team 8! LOL >> That would be great to see, Grandizzy. Thirty years next year; Tempus fugit ... May I ask a question about the filming, which I've always wondered? I presume there were lots of breaks in the shooting wh...

Re: Series 4 graphics reimagined

More of those re-touched Series 4 scenes would be lovely, Grandizzy!! I always thought the Dunswater scene unnecessarily grey. What Series 4 does have in its favour, though, in my opinion, is a good mix of David Rowe-painted scenes, CGI animations (like the Swinging Axe chamber) and location recordi...
