Bit easy in the Beam Room - all they had to do was walk straight forward in the direction the dungeoneer was facing! Other teams have had the dungeoneer slightly misaligned in this room and had to keep stopping, rotating and/or sidestepping the dungeoneer =P
Bees were used on the troll this time, by opening the jar of Humbugs!
I liked how Mildread appeared to be sleeping, but could be seen opening one eye in the close-up! I also thought they'd lost after Mildread didn't accept the Small Change, but they conjured up a well by throwing the Small Change purse into the cauldron!
Notice how the smoke coming from cauldron stopped before he threw the purse into the cauldron. Probably so that smoke wouldn't still be coming out of the wellway when it appeared!
The answer to the first riddle was 'Hippogriff'... so, it wasn't an original J. K. Rowling idea! Riddles seemed fairly easy this time.
I liked how Cedric tried to fight off the monster in the green Corridor of Catacombs! Look closely and you'll see Cedric is right up against the back of the blue room when attacking with his staff!
Didn't get much time to retrieve the Medal spell before the Automatum came in!
A ghost was above the clue table, who told them to 'free' it by turning over the talisman. After using that, it was pretty obvious which items to take, plus the ghost told them to beware the talisman! Also gained a bonus spell, FREE, which actually appeared as a word on the screen! (was it like this in the original CITV broadcast?)
Mistake in this room too... As the dungeoneer approached the table, the satellite feed switched over to some other channel, where a phone-in game was taking place. Oddly, the Challenge logo remained! Soon switched back to Knightmare though. Anyone else saw this?
Looks like they're sticking with the silent 6-8 logo for the ad breaks
In Ariadne's lair (not 'layer'!), they used the FREE spell to free the maid. Notice how the spellcaster started to cast it again when they thought it hadn't worked.
The maid told them to use the MEDAL spell, but of course they never got a chance to collect the MEDAL spell! So died there. And we finally got to see Ariadne walk off the other side of the screen.
I think they were in losing status from the point where they missed getting the MEDAL spell. I wonder though, could they have used that FREE spell for themselves and carried on? If so, they'd probably have come into a place where they couldn't get out without the maid's help, or the MEDAL spell.
Next team gained a spell from Gretel in the first room, FOUL. Did they take the correct door in the first room? To me, first left and first right indicated the two doors right in front of the dungeoneer (one of which was Fire Exit). They wanted to take the Fire Exit, but Treguard commented "Where's the fire?".
Now I know where the fire was - in the next room, the Cave of Fire! They got burned by the flames and took life force damage, but managed to get food in the next room (clue room).
The camera on Olgarth seemed to be a bit out of position, too high. Got 3/3, then timed out! Got to see a 'pure' version of the Mills of Doom over the credits, without the Y-panels in the centre of the cogs.
