Going Back on New Knightmare

It seems to me that 'going back' could actually benefit the quality of quests, and that it could be managed in a controlled way. Not least by rockfalls, pursuing opposition and other factors that make going back obviously not an option in many scenes. But also by having several transporter pads, and...

Narration for New Knightmare

Has anyone else thought of this? A new series of Knightmare could have a narrator - who may or may not be Treguard (or a successor) - and the narrator could relate events as if historical. Why might that be beneficial? I am sure I haven't thought-through all the implications yet, but it would obviat...

I was on two of the episodes of Cyberzone, in the audience. You can see me bashing my friend over the head with a cyber cushion during a celebratory moment!

Re: Invite to Tim Child. Invite for Knightmare Chat. 16th 17th or 18th of december 2016

How do you get on Knightmare chat then? I remember Tim as being generous and considerate - e.g. he realised at our second audition that we had tried before (with two different team members) and that it would be our last chance due to my age - however it seems to me a tad unfair to try to pin him to ...

Re: Christmas scene: blog post

Well at Christmas time, as with many festivals, it seems to me you have to go with the flow to a certain extent. Even if you're super organised and arrange things early, you're going to encounter busy shoppers and pick up the sense of bustle. Tim said "Enjoy the rest of the summer, boys; I know ther...

Re: Christmas scene: blog post

Hi Mystara, Thank you for interacting with me on this thread. When I say 'quest plan', for example when I asked the producer how many more scenes there were to our quest, he said he'd have to check the plan (or perhaps he used some other synonym for it). I thought Tim had already described that each...

Re: Christmas scene: blog post

Yes but even taking that into account I think my point still stands: that it was not for want of studio time that the last three scenes of our quest weren't filmed.

Re: Christmas scene: blog post

Thanks for your interaction, Drassil. I was expecting someone to say it didn't fit the scary/gothic feel of Knightmare, and I was ready to say that the same could be said of Lord Fear from series 6 onwards - but he is still popular with many fans. However, you surprised me! I think if the production...

Hi Everyone,

Knightmare's Christmas ending on Series 4 Episode 16 is mentioned glowingly in this article on '5 Hidden Gems of Children's Christmas TV':

Current popularity of VR

VR seems to be mass-arriving with retail customers over the next few years, and yet there is no sign that the KM production team is working on the promised VR version of KM with multiple advisers. I guess this could be because they have tried, or are trying, and no TV channel is interested. Or it co...

Re: Can anyone remember meeting Merlin?

Yes we met him in the canteen. He said 'Alright boys?' and I said 'Go on, do your Mogdred impression!' [or was it 'voice'?]. Sadly he demurred 'No, I can't do that'. A few minutes later we spoke to the actor who played Hordriss (Clifford Norgate), who said 'I'll give you the same answer as that gent...

Re: Alternative Series 4 Endings!

Perhaps the Christmas ending of Series 4 was intended to be a dramatic foil for Lord Fear to appear at the very start of Series 5. After all, Merlin says "There's nothing to fear". As our Level 2 was unusually short (the shortest ever?!) - at least that's my opinion - maybe the Block and Tackle was ...

Weeping Doors

Is it really true (!) that teams needed one correct answer in Level 1, two in Level 2 and three in Level 3? It would seem an anticlimax, from a production perspective, to make the end of series 4 hang on getting three True or False questions correct. After our Level 1 encounter I asked Treguard (off...

Knightmare Series 9

Hugo Myatt mentioned that he thought Knightmare could run for at least another two series, due to the new ideas the production team had. Does anyone know or remember what some of these ideas were?
