Re: Dug up Knightmare passed: The Quest

A happy ending to this: Matt/Myatt was kind enough to retrieve and scan all his copies of The Quest and they're now on the relaunched website for all to enjoy. Thank you, Matt. On that note I'll lock this topic, but if you find anything in The Quest issues that you'd like to talk about here, feel fr...

Thanks for sharing your experience, Ariadne's Layer. Without knowing exactly who you encountered in the chatroom and wha...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 2

The 30th anniversary today of this episode means the 30th anniversary of Michael Cule's Knightmare debut. That first Brother Mace scene, available here on the ITV Children's Classics YouTube channel, is one of my favourites. Michael has commented: I was bloody terrified at the time that I’d lose it ...

Based on the first verse and chorus of Voyage, Voyage by Desireless (1986). Official video ; Official clip of Knightmare scene Au d...

Re: Series 6 - Episode 7

Apart from the causeway team 4 were good. (Is this becoming a running theme this series:question:) Lead advisor Sarah was particularly enthusiastic. She may have been trying to compensate for not getting to enter the dungeon as planned. It was revealed in the Winter 1992 issue The Quest: Poor Sarah...

Re: Series 6 - Episode 6

Encountered Hordriss in one of his awful disguises. :D They were on the ball tho and accepted his deadly box, but made sure Alan wouldn't open it. Like many other watchers, I was initially fooled into thinking it was Hordriss-as-Harris, but the evidence that it's Lord-Fear-as-Hordriss-as-Harris, as...

Re: Shadow Of The Opposition - free KM gamebook download

James, I recently let Paul Flannery know about Shadow of the Opposition. I'm hoping he might use it (and the other fan-made gamebooks) for his Knightmare Live gamebook playthroughs, to add variety and also to avoid yet another doomed quest through The Labyrinths of Fear... Happy Knightmare Day to ev...

Re: Series 5 - Episode 16

This being her last appearance, we never do find out why Aesandre hates blondes so much. Does she have a dark and traumatic history with a unknown fair-haired figure? Or maybe it has something to do with a certain White Witch? I've always seen it as an in-joke based on Juliet Henry-Massy, who playe...

Re: Series 5 - Episode 16

Here at the end of the series, it becomes ironic that one of the first things we learned about Lord Fear, during his first appearance way back at the beginning of this series, was that he has "an intellect that can freeze rivers".
