Nick says Erin Geraghty - let's see what that scores him...

Well done indeed, Nick - you winkled out the pointless answer, scoring you no points, leaving your total at 2 and taking you safely through to the head-to-head! Erin Geraghty played Mistress Goody in Series 4, although God knows why anyone thought it was necessary for her to do so!

AMY
Answer 1 - 1
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

BEN
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

NICK
Answer 1 - 2
Answer 2 - 0
TOTAL - 2

Ben, you're up again. You are our current high scorer on 4, so you'll just have to try and score as low as you can and hope for the best!

Ben says Natasha Pope - let's see what that scores him...

Image

As three of our six people remembered, Natasha Pope played Velda, Brangwen and Morghanna in Series 3, appearing in 15 of the series' 16 episodes. Ben, you score 3 points, taking your total to 7.

AMY
Answer 1 - 1
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

BEN
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - 3
TOTAL - 7

NICK
Answer 1 - 2
Answer 2 - 0
TOTAL - 2

Amy, we come to you to finish off the round. If you score 5 or less, you will be through to the head-to-head with Nick. If you score 6, you and Ben will be in a tiebreak situation and have to battle it out for that second spot. What is your answer?

Amy says Bill Cashmore - let's see what that scores her...

Image

Bill Cashmore played Snapper-Jack, Honesty Bartram and Bhal-Shebah in Series 8, and he's just earned you a place in the head-to-head, Amy.

AMY
Answer 1 - 1
Answer 2 - 2
TOTAL - 3

BEN
Answer 1 - 4
Answer 2 - 3
TOTAL - 7


NICK
Answer 1 - 2
Answer 2 - 0
TOTAL - 2

And so we say goodbye to Ben, who can now take his place in the Knightmare Pointless Hall of Fame for being the only person so far to have gone out in all three rounds - Round 1, Round 2 and the Head-to-Head! Thanks very much for playing, Ben, and I hope you enjoyed the experience.

Now, let's see the whole board for that question:

ADRIAN NEIL - 4
ANTHONY DONOVAN - 3
JOANNE HEYWOOD - 3
SAMANTHA PERKINS - 3
NATASHA POPE - 3
BILL CASHMORE - 2
JULIET HENRY-MASSY - 2
JACQUELIN JOYCE - 2
AUDREY JENKINSON - 1
DAVID VERREY - 1
ERIN GERAGHTY - 0

Nick and Amy now move on to the head-to-head. Whichever one of them wins the best of three questions will be our fourth Knightmare Pointless champion, which will earn them two things - the chance to find a pointless answer in the jackpot final, and a guaranteed place in the Knightmare Pointless Champion of Champions Game!

ROUND 3 - HEAD-TO-HEAD

The first question - we gave 6 people 100 seconds to name...

WITCHES AND SORCERESSES

So that's any female Knightmare character who can reasonably be classed as a witch or sorceress. For this particular question, they DO NOT have to have been played by a credited Knightmare actor. And if you're wondering exactly what our judges meant by "reasonably be classed", you'll find out once you venture your answer - it's up to you to decide how much of a risk to take!

Amy, you have scored slightly less than Nick during the game so far (there's only 1 point in it, actually) so you get to go first. Nick, please post your answer when you see that Amy has posted hers - don't wait for me to say anything, because I won't!

Amy says Mistress Goody - let's see what that scores her...

Image

Nick says Peggatty - let's see what that scores him...

Image

So Nick takes a 1-0 lead! Let's take a look at the whole board for that question:

AESANDRE - 5
GREYSTAGG - 5
HEGGATTY - 5
MALDAME - 5
MALICE - 5
MISTRESS GOODY - 5
MORGHANNA - 5
LILLITH - 4
MILDREAD - 4
MRS GRIMWOLD - 4
PEGGATTY - 4
SIDRISS - 4

Right then, on to the second question. We gave 6 people 100 seconds to name...

NAMED CREATURES AND ANIMALS

So that's any Knightmare creature (e.g. goblin, skull ghost, mireman) or animal (e.g. lizard, dog, elephant) with a specific name (e.g. Bob, Mike, Susan). This does NOT include any main (i.e. where the actor is credited) characters, including voice-only or body-only parts. Humans or sub-humans such as witches and ogres do NOT count.

Nick, it's you to answer first. Amy, please post your answer as soon as you see that Nick has done his.

Aw damn. This is quite a hard one. Well if I get this wrong then congrats Nick. I'll go for Neddy (Sir High's horse).

Nick says Mug - let's see what that scores him...

Image

Amy says Neddy - let's see what that scores her...

Image

Amy, you've done what you needed to do and the score is now level at 1-1! Let's take a look at all the answers for that one:

BETHSEMENE (cat) - 5
GRIPPA (goblin) - 5
RHARK (goblin) - 5
FALGO (pooka) - 4
FESTUS (hellhound) - 4
TINY (hobgoblin) - 4
ARIADNE (spider) - 3
MUG (gargoyle) - 3
PUCK (pooka) - 3
RED DEATH (dragon) - 3
KHAR (cobra) - 2
MEDUSA (gorgon) - 2
BULSTRODE (troll) - 1
LITTLE ACORN (tree troll) - 1
NEDDY (horse) - 1
RODNEY (maggot) - 1
SNAPPER (snapdragon) - 0

Knightmare Pointless watchers, if you can think of any others then you should feel very proud of yourselves, as this means that I and all my answerers have totally overlooked them, and they would have been pointless.

So, who will be our champion - Nick or Amy? It could very well be decided by the next question. We gave 6 people 100 seconds to name...

DUNGEONEERS WHOSE SIZE CHANGED DURING THEIR QUEST

So that's any dungeoneer whose quest involved growing and/or shrinking. This DOES include dungeoneers whose physical appearance changed into the likeness of anyone or anything bigger or smaller than themselves at any point. Please give your answers in the form of Dungeoneer's First Name (Series X), e.g. William (Series 20).

Amy, it's you to answer first. Nick, please follow suit.

Anyone? So does that mean that their appearance could change completely (e.g. turning into a mouse)?

Yes, if there was a dungeoneer that turned into a mouse, that would count.

Well I know for a fact that no dungeoneer turned into a mouse. Umm...(lets hope this works) Kelly (Season 3).

That was going to be my answer, but if Amy does indeed win, all credit to her - that answer of Neddy would never have occurred to me if I had thought about it all day. I myself am torn between a few answers, but in the end, I'm going to stick with Series 3 and go for Martin, when he turned into a ghost. It looked smaller than he did, so I hope it's right.


Just realised I didn't post according to what the host asked, so my answer is Martin (Series 3). (Sorry!)
