Thanks for updating, but you put the wrong link to the Wikipedia entry. It's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knightmare . and not http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Knightmare .

Both links you posted are the same? I've tested the links and they seem to work ok?

One of them (en.wikipedia.org) is a link to the encyclopedia entry, and the other (en.wikiquote.org) is a list of quotes from the show.

You've corrected it on the main page, yes, but the wrong link is still in the 'Links' page.

Edit: Thanks!

For my first contribution to this thread, one from the beginning and one from recent times.

http://knightmare.com/series/1/index.htm
'Team 1: David, James, Lucien from Bedfordshire'
That's only three names! The missing fourth name is David again.
[Edit 08/11/05: Still uncorrected.]

http://knightmare.com/
'Brother's Bar - Knightmare Pilot'
It's actually entitled Bother's Bar.

-----

[The following were originally posted on 24/09/05.]

http://knightmare.com/series/1/index.htm
'Gumboil and The Knight was played by Edmund Dehn'
- I believe this should read 'The Giant' instead of the 'The Knight', as the Giant hasn't been credited.
[Edit 08/11/05: Still uncorrected.]

http://knightmare.com/pictures/
'Whole Cast Photographs
Series 1 & 2 : Treguard, The Troll, Olaf, Merlin, Folly, Cedric, Guard, Gretel, Mildread.'
- The photo covers only Series 2. 'Guard' is Gumboil.

OK then - Series 3. Under 'old characters' you list 'The Ogre'. There were no ogres in Series 1 or 2.

Nitpicking comes far too easily to me... there may be no stopping me! ;) But it's all in the spirit of constructiveness.

http://knightmare.com/series/6/teams_p2.htm
'Got causeway combination from Elita who agrees to search for the dragon calling.
On meeting Julius Scaramonger he tried to sell them a horn whilst trying to hide a red sack which suspiciously looks like the dragon calling they were after. Still, he wouldn't sell it even though they offered silver for it, so they use the ring to scare him and an Ogre out the way.'
- dragon caller. Also, the ogre, Scaramonger's assistant, is referred to as (young) Grimwold, which later becomes the password, so I think it's worth specifying here.

'They get a dragon mint in return and calls Sophia a "face ake".'
- ache

http://knightmare.com/series/4/index.htm
'The Ogre was played by Erin Geraghty'
- I strongly doubt this. According to http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0313873/ , Erin Geraghty is most definitely female. Mistress Goody isn't credited on knightmare.com, and I reckon that that's who Erin Geraghty played. I don't think any of KM's ogres were properly credited at the end of the episodes (probably because they had no lines).

'Old Characters
Hordriss, Motley, Mellisandre, Merlin, Mogdred, The Ogre.'
- Since the Series 4 Ogre wasn't referred to as 'Grimwold' (as the ogre in the previous series was), I think it's fair to assume that it's a different ogre, i.e. a New Character.

- Also, this webpage mentions 'The Boat Man' and 'The Boatman'. Although it's obvious that they're the same character, consistency looks better. I'd use 'The Boatman' throughout.

http://knightmare.com/series/5/index.htm
'New Characters
Powers that Be: Sir Hugh de Witless, Gwendoline, Pixel the Pixie. Opposition: Lord Fear, Aesandre, Scarkill (with goblins Grippa & Rhark), Sylvester Hands, Elita, Julius Scaramonger.'
- Gwendoline could be extended to 'Gwendoline the Greenwarden'.
- Skarkill

'Old Characters
Powers that Be: Treguard, Pickle, Brother Mace, Hordriss, Motley, Oalkey. Opposition: The Gatemaster.'
- Oakley
- The Boatman has been omitted (he appeared once in Series 5).

'Other Additions
The 'blockers' on each level (replacing the weeping doors), the spy glass (to see what the opposition was up to), the 'decender' (a lift replacing the wellways), the various puzzle causeways and Smirkenorff to transport dungeoneers to and between levels'
- descender, with an s (or 'descendor', since Brother Mace pronounced it with a clear 'or' sound).

http://knightmare.com/series/6/index.htm
'New Characters
Powers that Be: Ah Wok, Ridolfo and Sidriss. Opposition: Samurai, Captain Nemanor, Heggatty, Greystagg'
- I'd also include Peggatty (Heggatty's sister; the one who fired at dungeoneers).

'Other Additions
New music, titles, logo and a new life force. A quest choice room re-introduced, Smirkenorff given a voice!, timers on causeways, the Dreadnought, Pookas and Storm Guiests introduced.'
- It's spelt 'Dreadnaught' on all other parts of the website (except http://knightmare.com/series/6/opposition.htm ). Again, better to be consistent if possible.
- I'd spell pooka with a lower-case p, otherwise it looks like a reference specifically to the Knightmare community member Pooka! (However, this would mean a lot of changes throughout the site.)
- Storm Geists (as in poltergeist, I suppose)

"Knightmare wins a bronze medal from the Youth Programmes category of the New York International Film & TV Awards 1998."
1988.

http://www.knightmare.com/series/
"Broadsword produces The Satellite Game for The Children's Channel on BSB Satellite"
There was no "Childrens Channel" on BSB. The five channels were Galaxy (entertainment), Now (women), The Sports Channel (guess :p), The Movie Channel (ditto), and The Power Station (music). However, Galaxy had a childrens strand called 'Galaxy Club', sort of like their version of CITV. It's likely, then, that "The Childrens Channel" should be "the Galaxy channel".

1991

Should be "When the Knightmare Adventurers Club was launched in 1991"

"Children's ITV celebrated their 25th anniversary"
20th

There was a Children's Channel on satellite TV many years ago, it came to the Astra satellite in 1989, though it had started in 1984 on cable. It spent the last five years of its life deciding whether it wanted to be TCC, Children's Channel or THE Children's Channel before deciding to say "sod it" and dying, giving its entire program output to Trouble which has since dumped pretty much all of it, some of which has been bought up by other channels.

Lots of TCC presentation on TV Ark:
http://www.tv-ark.org.uk/otherchannels/ ... annel.html

Therefore it is incorrect to say that this reference should be changed to "The Galaxy Channel" as TCC was never Galaxy but a separate channel in its own right. Anyway BSB didn't launch until March 1990 and merged with Sky eight months later.

Yeah, I remember it, but that wasn't a BSB one, and Tim Child definitely mentions it was for BSB in the History.
