Rumours from Mark Knight

Post by shadow6162 » Mon Jul 15, 2013 8:50 pm

HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THIS?!?!?!

"...on July 21st I fly to the UK to shoot a revival of the TV show Knightmare. In this clip I'm Lord Fear, the one in the black armour and skull-like hat. I'm looking forward to a week in the UK being an evil magician and destroying my enemies. Go kon, be a nerd & like the Knightmare Facebook page!"

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!

It was from a newsletter sent to me by email from his website :)

A new Knightmare tv show?
Can't see that happening.

WTF?! (F standing for Fear of course.) Thank you for this, Amy. Good to know that we're repatriating Mark Knight for a bit, and perhaps he'll have more to say once he's back on Albion soil. I hope he stays long enough to take in Knightmare Live and I'm Jack Ruby (Cliff Barry's Edinburgh Festival show) and some of Challenge's Knightmare repeats. He could even gatecrash the Blackpool meetup! For now though, I'm imagining him in his seat, miniature shellphones over his ears, listening to the sound of dragon wings as the plane takes off.

This is certainly very curious and I am intrigued to find out more.
I would be surprised if this meant a new series of Knightmare. If it were to start filming in 5 days, surely we would have heard something about it? Applications for contestants etc.? A week doesn't sound very long to shoot a whole series either (on second thoughts - Lord Fear probably wasn't needed for very long because all he had to do really was film spyglass scenes). There would have probably been a pilot episode too if a new series was commissioned.
It can't have anything to do with Knightmare Live, because another actor is playing Lord Fear at that.
I admit I would be very excited by a new series, but I'd be very anxious as to how it would turn out. They'd have to not stray too far from the original formula and not let technology overwhelm the heart of the show, as happened in Knightmare VR.

How very curious...

A pilot? Guess they'd need to do one before a revival...

A nice rumour to be pondering though!

I cannot imagine there's any new series planned, and as Ross says, it seems unlikely to be related to Knightmare Live either. Plus it can't be for Challenge because they don't have the rights to Lord Fear-era KM at the moment. I have no idea what this could be for, but I really hope we get to see it!

Quite a few theories as to what Mark Knight will be doing! I can't see a series 9 happening. But who know's?! I think there could be a special episode or maybe a tribute to the program itself. Can't think what else that could happen! We will find out soon I believe!

although how knows what they've been doing/planning behind closed doors.
I could be a pilot I guess, or filming a introduction for something.
More then likely it's that sketch show I keep reading about KM LIVE.

Confuzzled.

I hunted Mark down on Facebook and asked him what he meant and he replied:

I'll be in the UK the week of Monday (July 22nd) filming new episodes for a new web-streaming version of Knightmare.

I then asked if it was an official thing led by Tim Child and his answer was:

Yes.

I wonder if this is being treated as Knightmare Series 9 and if it's being produced on the same scale as the original series.
If it's a web based project, they might not have the funds to produce it on the same scale (ie chromakey room and hiring lots of actors) and therefore they might rely on technology to make up for it, resulting in something possibly Knightmare VR-ish. I hope they stick to the original premise of the show, but it's certainly an exciting prospect! :)
