Re: BUT spell

That's correct, undoubtedly. But it seems OPPOSITE has a clearer association with poison (negating it) than does TRANSFORMATION (into what?), which is why I think TRANSFORMATION was for something else - namely, to turn Helen back into herself. Or possibly into a Frightknight.

Re: BUT spell

Yes, possibly, although I think it would be too similar. I think both spells were to be used in the same room, unless of course TRANSFORMATION was never to be used. However 'BUT' on its own doesn't seem at all climactic! I would be surprised if there was meant to be a pun on the 'butt' of the magic ...

Re: BUT spell

Hi Pooka, Thank you for sharing your four interesting possibilities. I would be very surprised if there wasn't a plan, given the detailed rehearsals Tom Hunt has described for different possibilities. I agree Team 1 were probably deemed too early to win; I suspect Tim decided to make it very hard to...

BUT spell

I think this would have led to Mogdred turning Helen into a lizard and then disappearing again, leaving Rachel to cast the TRANSFORMATION spell to turn Helen back into herself again.

Re: Best Series

I would say, out of the first three (hand-drawn chamber) series, Series 3 was the best as it was the culmination of them, so I'm going to eliminate series 1 and 2. However, I liked the way the game evolved in a gradual manner during those series, because it made the show seem familiar - as if you un...

Re: Missing room from series 4

How about allowing people to try the Swinging Axe room for the next KM Convention: is it really impossible?! Can anyone do it?!

Re: Missing room from series 4

Agreed, although if it looked intrinsically impossible to the production team they might have decided not to use it even for a team in so-called losing status, as was the case. I also agree about the ledge room from Series 3 looking hard enough without the team being harried along by a graphical wea...

Re: Missing room from series 4

Hi again Wombstar, I would be very surprised if we were the only team for it to have been tested on, although if they'd deemed it unworkable from a previous team's attempt, they wouldn't have wasted studio time trying it again. Maybe they thought it worth another go to increase the variety of scenes...

I don't know, mate. Stereotypical British sense of fair play, perhaps?

Re: Re:Interview with Rob from season 4 team 8

Hi Drassil, I have always assumed Winteria was an opportunity the production team seized in December 1990. I know it was snowing heavily in Yorkshire on the weekend of Episode 15 of Series 4, anyway! But it could have been scheduled - possibly Tim trying to get the location shooting done earlier in ...

Re: Re:Interview with Rob from season 4 team 8

I don't know whether you havev Rob's interview transcript anywhere, but as the team captain here are my answers: Which actors/characters did you most enjoy encountering during your time on Knightmare? Most of them: Treguard, Merlin, Motley, Pickle, Brother Mace, Mogdred, Gundrada, Mellisandre (in th...

Eye Shield Sequences - is it possible ...

Here's a question I've had for a while ... was/is it possible to add characters and objects to Eye Shield Sequences? For example, by having a camera that tracks the positions and angles, and then reproducing the track in the studio to add in characters and objects with which teams either have intera...

Re: Missing room from series 4

In fact we encountered it at start of Level 3. Treguard introduced the swinging axe by reference to the Sword of Damocles. It took us something like 2 mins 30 secs (or was it five minutes?) to get halfway round. Long enough for Giles to need to stand up - quite a scary sight with the axe swinging ro...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 15

Yes of course we did. We had Series 3 playing in the Green Room. If there was a problem, it was that the Adventurer's Code document didn't indicate a change to the established format of three series. Basically, I was determined to leave no stone unturned in our quest.

Lord Fear

It was good to raise the profile of the opposition - I agree with the reviewer who said John Woodnutt was underused as Mogdred, although to be fair to the production team they had an awful lot to get right on the first few series - although I would have preferred the main baddie to be some kind of w...
