Re:Knightmare's most frightening bit?

The added heartbeat (and accompanying music) just prior to a death or serious danger in the later series' always raised the stakes for me, and indeed still do. If there was ever a successful blip of incidental music in the show, this was the bit for me.

The Medusa of Series 2 Team 3's fate.

Christopher enters room looking directly at the Medusa. Tregaurd gives his extreme warning to the team and states that they need the shield in order to get past. Cue the advisors thinking "Oh bugger", and before you know it, the Medusa room has evolved into a flash of different colours before turning the entire team into stone....

The next time the Medusa appeared, where Series 2 Team 10 successfully passed it using the shield, was equally gripping, since the advisors had to each take it in turn to guide Julian to the exit.

Unfortunatley the Medusa's third and final appearance in Series 3 Team 4's quest was not quite as good, where Leo et al were just able to hold it off using a GRIP spell before easily getting to the exit - one of the low points of Series 3 perhaps.
