Re: Series 4 - Episode 1

Wonder if the footage is still available somewhere! By the way, as I recall, Treguard introduced the scene by referring to the 'Sword of Damocles'. The sword froze after the 2.5 minutes - either the animation was on a loop (no supercomputers in the studio during Series 4) and the production team pau...

Re: Favourite teams poll

Thanks pjmlfc05! You're from Hampshire, too? The producer came in chuckling after that scene and saying he hadn't had so much fun in years. The reason I went into overdrive in that room is we'd already seen it once (but not over and over again like viewers at home!) and I knew what was coming! I'm n...

Re: Favourite teams poll

Even if this has been brought up before, no harm doing this again! My fav teams are as follows: Series 1 - Team 3 (Simon) Series 2 - Team 6 (Akash) Series 3 - Team 11 (Martin) Series 4 - Team 8 ( Giles) Series 5 - Team 4 (Ben) Series 6 - Team 5 (Ben) Series 7 - Team 7 (Barry) Series 8 - Team 2 (Dan...

Re: Re:Series 4 - Episode 1

dunno why everyone says it is unworkable. get down and crawl! there easy sorted and if nto thought of then pretty high chance of dungeoneer death. or if they set up a ledge for the dungeoneer to walk on in the shape of that path then it would just be about timing as the dungeoneer wouldnt step off ...

Re: Those that were denied...

Thank you to Pooka and the others who have joined me in musing about the TINY spell. The producer said there were about four scenes left, without checking the script to be precise. This suggests there could have been the fireplace scene from earlier in S4 on L2 (scenes moved between levels rather fr...

Re: Series 4 Episode 10

I thought the sequence of animations including the giant lizard and through the first few locations in Level 2 was one of the better ones of this series. Some of the guiding on Level 2 was quite erratic, not least on the Block and Tackle. Not that I can talk! We weren't even told the name of the roo...

Re: Those that were denied...

In reply to Kieran, we did complete the Transporter pad room. It was the Adventurer's Code that advised the right-hand path, at least the version of the Code we read for Series 4. So our approach was to choose right in the absence of any specific reason to the contrary. Again, we didn't go right twi...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 16

I've just been considering parallels between Series 4 Team 1 and our quest. We were told there were about four scenes left, which would fit the two scenes for shrinking and de-shrinking that occurred earlier in the series on Level 2 (e.g. to escape from Mogdred by using the TINY spell and then rever...

Re: Series 4 Team 8 Reunion - Meet the Team

I seem to recall that some blocks move once, and others move in a predictable fashion. It gives the overall impression that the room is harder than it appears. Though of course, if you don't realise the significance of the fact that some blocks move only once, you might be tempted to think they're ...

This lasted about five minutes with Giles moving extremely carefully and getting nearly halfway through before the axe stopped - either due to the production team stopping a loop or the animation sequence finishing.

Re: Series 4 Team 8 Reunion - Meet the Team

Brett writes: We didn't know it was called 'Block and Tackle' either when we did it! It was only through watching earlier Series 4 episodes that we learnt of that name. To us it was just the room where blocks flew across seemingly at random (though I think there was a pattern somewhere) and the floo...
