I've always been interested in the item choices of Series 2, Team 7. There were given a hint (told outright, really) that they needed a bone to give to Mildread, which they didn't have. However, she did nevertheless accept the potion named "Potion" in its stead, which I found odd. She also them gave...
Mixed performance against Dooris. They got away with a mistake. A man-of-war is a jellyfish, not actually a fish. Actually, it's neither! The Portuguese man o'war is a siphonophore - effectively a colony of organisms living together as one - as opposed to being a true jellyfish (which is a single o...
Bizarre description of the mechanical warrior: a guard with a fishing rod with a hard ball on the end. ;D That would be called a morning star. That's more a description of the actor playing him, rather than the character himself! :green: There was a discussion about the Automatum's weapon a while a...

You notice that the machine is having trouble dispensing your item, so you grab and pull it out. It's a chunky, frayed rope, which you swear you've seen on the floor in the Dwarf Tunnels from series 6 and 7. The machine splutters as you unspool the rope, clearly not built for something any more than...
I've been thinking about this one recently, oddly enough. I assume if they had abandoned Gretel and saved the "FREE" spell for themselves, it would have counted against them as they were in "losing-status" without the "MEDAL" spell. I hadn't even considered the fact that the team didn't have the MED...
I've been watching Series 5 during lockdown and noted a couple of things during viewing this one: - There's an audible thunk just before Jenna leaves the Blocker room. I wonder if she walked into a wall, or if this was just someone dropping something, or a microphone blip? - One advisor correctly re...
I have indeed investigated. It's quite slow and clunky in places, and I'm struggling to see exactly how to retain control of your 'borg; the vehicles seem completely superfluous, as they also look difficult to control and easy for a 'borg to get around! Nevertheless, the VR is good for its time, and...

Great analysis, David. This is the sort of thing I could spend hours discussing! I suppose it's one of the reasons Knightmare is so engaging decades after its end - the sort of speculation that can go on. I want to pick up on one of your points from Series 8: The third, Quest 4, has an element of un...
You're right; with no way of knowing if there were any more rooms following the Trial by Spikes (and, if so, how many), it's impossible to guess. My guess of DICE was based on the idea that whatever was in the room with two stools was needed to complete a spell in its entirety. I don't think that th...
Once a team makes a wrong decision (e.g. taking incorrect clue items, failure to get a spell from a character, whatever) they'll simply be killed off in the next room rather than allow events to play out and be killed by the mistake they actually made. That's true. I remember Tim talking at some po...

I've recently found out that there's actually a series of children's books called "Knightmare!". They are about a young boy training to be a knight. Presumably, he's already earned his Silver Spurs of Squiredom.
It depends which pooka you're talking about. There's a memorable credits sequence that features a pooka in Series 6, but I seem to remember (although I may be wrong; it's hazy) one appearing during the Series 5 closing sequence? The Series 4/5 pookas (or "hauntings"), I always thought, had a scarier...

When was Knightmare even on freeview regularly ? I think maybe six, seven years ago but even then it was only one or two episodes back to back. Not nearly enough to satisfy real enthusiasts of the show. :( A few years back - and the actual date escapes me somewhat but I'm thinking 2013 - Challenge ...

I did indeed go to the previous Blackpool meetup as per Alan's list, but I don't plan on going to this one, so I don't have any opinion about dates.
