Favourite teams poll

Post by Canadanne » Thu Jan 22, 2015 11:37 pm

Not sure if this has been done before, but I thought it would be interesting... for each series, pick the ONE team that you enjoy watching the most. Once the eight most popular have emerged, perhaps we could have a 'champion of champions' vote to find the overall favourite.

A reminder of the teams to choose from, with dungeoneer names:

SERIES 1 - Team 1 (David), Team 2 (Maeve), Team 3 (Simon), Team 4 (Danny), Team 5 (Helen), Team 6 (Richard)

SERIES 2 - Team 1 (Martin), Team 2 (Claire), Team 3 (Christopher), Team 4 (Mark), Team 5 (Tony), Team 6 (Akash), Team 7 (Neil), Team 8 (Stuart), Team 9 (Jamie), Team 10 (Julian), Team 11 (Anthony), Team 12 (Steven), Team 13 (Karen)

SERIES 3 - Team 1 (Gavin), Team 2 (Cliff), Team 3 (Simon), Team 4 (Leo), Team 5 (James), Team 6 (Ross), Team 7 (Kelly), Team 8 (Douglas), Team 9 (Scott), Team 10 (Julie), Team 11 (Martin), Team 12 (Chris)

SERIES 4 - Team 1 (Helen), Team 2 (Alistair), Team 3 (Nicky), Team 4 (Simon), Team 5 (Vicky), Team 6 (Dickon), Team 7 (Jeremy), Team 8 (Giles)

SERIES 5 - Team 1 (Kathryn), Team 2 (Richard), Team 3 (Sarah), Team 4 (Ben), Team 5 (Jenna), Team 6 (Alex), Team 7 (Christopher), Team 8 (Duncan), Team 9 (Kelly)

SERIES 6 - Team 1 (Matt), Team 2 (Sumayya), Team 3 (Alan), Team 4 (January), Team 5 (Ben), Team 6 (Sophia), Team 7 (Chris)

SERIES 7 - Team 1 (Simon), Team 2 (Nicola), Team 3 (Alex), Team 4 (Naila), Team 5 (Ben), Team 6 (Julie), Team 7 (Barry)

SERIES 8 - Team 1 (Richard), Team 2 (Daniel), Team 3 (Nathan), Team 4 (Michael), Team 5 (Rebecca), Team 6 (Dunstan), Team 7 (Oliver)


Some of these are really close for me, but I think I would pick as my favourites...
SERIES 1 - Team 3 (Simon)
SERIES 2 - Team 13 (Karen)
SERIES 3 - Team 11 (Martin)
SERIES 4 - Team 6 (Dickon)
SERIES 5 - Team 4 (Ben)
SERIES 6 - Team 6 (Sophia)
SERIES 7 - Team 7 (Barry)
SERIES 8 - Team 3 (Nathan)

The only way is onward, there is no turning back.

Well, these are the most popular teams, then:

SERIES 1 - tie between Team 3 (Simon) and Team 6 (Richard)

SERIES 2 - tie between Team 6 (Akash) and Team 10 (Julian)

SERIES 3 - Team 11 (Martin)

SERIES 4 - Team 6 (Dickon)

SERIES 5 - Team 4 (Ben), unanimously!

SERIES 6 - Team 6 (Sophia)

SERIES 7 - Team 7 (Barry)

SERIES 8 - Team 2 (Daniel)

Out of those final 10, I'd go with Barry's team as my overall favourite. How about you?

Julie's team from Series 7 is my favourite of all time, and Dickon's is my second favourite, so Dickon's would be my favourite from that list. :)

As a team, i always enjoyed Bens quest the most. Their speed, understanding, and seemingly prior knowledge of Knightmare made them one great collective unit. Even though i was disappointed that they only had mostly Causeways to deal with (no corridor of blades or play your cards right), they are still the most enjoyable for me to watch. Even the shortened instructions they gave to Ben, such as PACE LEFT and opposed to, ok....umm....sidestep to your.... left. Left. Keep going. Stop. Turn around. Walk forward.

You're welcome! It was just a shame you did not have the time to complete your quest as I think you could have won.

My favourite bit of your quest is when you navigated the block and tackle! ;D

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 not convinced the random moving of the blocks from the right was fair. Maybe it was never intended to be though. We didn't know it was called 'The Block and Tackle' until we watched earlier episodes of Series 4.

No worries! Yeah live in a place called Havant, just by Portsmouth.

Yeah from your point of view, I would probably be the same! The random moving blocks where unfair I felt. I guess it was to create more tension in teams trying to navigate the room.Either way it did make for an exciting puzzle!
