Throughout the site, reference is made to "Ariadne's Layer". This should be "lair". ;-)

I'd give places but it's probably easier to grep for the next yourself - the series 2 level 2 page and series 3 level 1 page are but two examples.

Series 4 team 5 were from Wymondham (correct spelling) and not Wyndom, which is how it's pronounced. Funny how some places are spelt, but then again some of the english language is funny anyway. As people have said english is one of the hardest languages to learn, but yet I think the widest spoken language in the world.

On the series 5 page Oakley is placed under the list of new characters, yet he should be in the existing characters section as he definately appeared in series 4.

More:

CITV 1990: "Clip available in 'CITV Clips' of Scally introducing another episode of Knightmare"
Series 4 Episode 7. Scally mentions the 'team from St Albans' (team 3) which appear at the beginning of Episodes 6 and 7. He also says Hordriss will be appearing as a special guest on Monday...this was in relation to Episode 8's letters competition, ruling out Episode 6 and making this Episode 7.

Knightmare on Childrens ITV clips page: "Scally introducing another episode of Knightmare"
See above.

CITV Main Page: "Hordriss came in to CITV on a Monday to announce a competition, to win an Atari Lynx game, and Gundrada appeared on the Friday to announce the results of the competition"
Now we know the date of the Scally clip, I can date the Monday to the 22nd of October.

Childrens ITV page: "(I'm not sure if the prize was Knightmare related)."
It wasn't, it was an Atari Lynx game...that's what it says a few words back, anyway.

Series 4 Team 6 - Gundrada didn't help to scare Ariadne, it was Ariadne that chased after Gundrada and thus giving Dickon ample time to grab the food and silver...
If the only way is onward how would you get home for tea?? :-/

Hmm... Seems to me that the answer to question 2 on the faq page is slightly out of date with
Challenge? showed Knightmare Series 3 from Christmas 2002 and Series 4 from June 2003. Series 5 was shown from October 2003. They have now bought the rights for Series 6, 7 & 8 and commenced showing Series 6 in April 2004. Keep an eye on the Knews page for announcements.

In November 2002, Televirtual (the same people behind the original series) announced that they intend to re-format Knightmare has a live children's TV show. This is not a guarantee of a new series but the chances are now much more likely. The latest developments on this can be found on the Knightmare VR Knews page.
What with Challenge having shown both series 1 and 2 and with the pilot of KMVR having been made. Just a thought.

Not a correction, more a suggestion but I'll put it here anyway...

There is so much good stuff on the main site that it is quite difficult to find some of it.

My suggestion would be a complete A to Z contents guide, don't won't be be a hassle but it would be easier for us to find our way about.
Good night out there; whatever you are!

Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes it has evolved to quite a large site, and some time ago I re-organised the sections to make it more logical and easier to find things. I'm not sure that it is difficult to find things as such, but may take a while if looking for something specific. I've also linked some of the best sections of the site on the front page as I thought all this good stuff was hidden away.

The site search function should be quite effective (powered by Google) if you can't find things.

The FAQ may need updating. Will try and do all these corrections this weekend.

Sorry 'bout this, I keep finding more:

Series 5: Teams page 2: "Gave Sly the book and that shocks him somehow and he clears off."
It turned him into a hobgoblin.

And on the same page:
"They blew a horn to scare off an assassin, but that upset Gwen."
...because it was a goblin horn.

Series 5: The Opposition: "Look too long and he would force a communications back-out"
black-out.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned already but on the home page for september's updates it says TES issue 28. Is it just me or was that the last issue, as it says issue 29 on tes's front page. Its only a minor thing, though.
The only way is onward, there is no turning back. Oooh nasty, didn't realise the road ended there!

Right, I've now made most of these corrections.

Please keep them coming, I do not mind at all people pointing out corrections, as it improves the site.
