Re: Series 4 Episode 3

It was the only scene we filmed on our first day of filming, we spent about five minutes negotiating it and I remember saying to the rest of the team when we were at our hotel that evening, "If that was just the first challenge, what will the rest be like?" That's interesting to consider in a broad...

Re: Jedi Temple Challenge

Episodes 3 and 4 of Jedi Temple Challenge (JTC) are now online too. I wonder if they made Episodes 4, 5 and 6 first. There's an episode of The Crystal Maze where Richard Ayoade takes exception to the phrase "You've got this." Enjoying JTC requires one to make peace with that phrase. Knightmare and R...

Re: 2000AD Magazine: Survival Geeks - Crisis Of Infinite Nerds

James, I'm glad you were the one to bring this news to the forum, since it was you who told us about the previous meeting of Knightmare and 2000AD: Edmund Dehn starring in Judge Minty . For all the great Knightmare fanart that's been created over the years, there's something special about a long-run...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 3

Giles (team 8 dungeoneer) mentioned he noticed the whirr of the motor from the beginning of the scene, before filming started - but the machinery could have had an analogue speed setting that was set slightly differently each time the device was set up. Brett, I regret that I'd forgotten about this...

Re: I'm back - I'm making a Knightmare D&D campaign!

Welcome back, Amy. As you have a few Knightmare fanfics to your name, it's nice to hear you've been studying creative writing. When Knightmare Series 1's first dungeoneer confirmed to Treguard that he had experience of dungeoneering, I wonder if he was referring to D&D. I like your idea for a campai...

Parody of Killer by Adamski and Seal

Lamenting the absence of Michael Cule's Series 4 (1990) characters. Based on Killer by Adamski and Seal ( official audio ), which happens to be from the same year. I wasn't sure I'd parody the whole thing, but then I saw 'future kings' later in the lyrics... Brother [Mace] Fatilla On a lonely quest ...

Parody of Don't Dream It's Over by Crowded House

Alternative first verse:

The behemoth has been
But can Kelly get out?
Got to sketch a wellway on a paper sheet
There's a "skeleton head"
And the quest has been lost
And they'll see the level below
It's quite harsh, Series 3

Re: Series 2 - Episode 10

Why did they choose that silly dagger? ::) Unlike the previous team, they were not given any reason to take it. Daggers in consecutive quests. I'd never picked up on that before. There's nothing like a watch-through for noticing trends. Thanks and keep up the good the work! This variation may be wh...
