Lissard - not my favourite character but I'll roll with it! ;D

And was Lord Fear's helmet always that big??

Ooh I'm loving Lord Fear's outfit! And actually I'm over the moon that they're using Lissard, since I'm a supporter of *COUGHCOUGHFear/LissardCOUGHCOUGH* :D

WHAT, where, when?, I live 40 minutes outside of Norwich I need to see this, outside of meeting half of the cast of red dwarf a few years ago at a signing at the sci fi shop this would be another dream come true.

Sorry about the caps, anyword if Hugo and a few others are confirmed as well?, not that I'm complaining about this Knight's a legend as well, just curious?.

They confirmed that Hugo is coming back. This says a few things as well: http://www.denofgeek.com/tv/knightmare/ ... -announced

Looking at the picture (high) above, it looks like Treguard has a new assistant, doesn't it?

Here's another picture I found. :)

EDIT: Oh - and more can be found at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 8177484376 :)

It looks like we've got a new jester.

Also - the antechamber seems to have been filmed in a blue room. Surely they must have two adjacent blue rooms so that the team can guide the dungeoneer?

So that's Hugo, Mark Knight and Cliff Barry all back at least, along with a surprise return for Nick Collett who played two characters (Despair and, erm, Lissard) in, of all things, the 2004 Knightmare VR pilot! He was also in Timebusters so goes back a fair way with Tim.

Also, Emma Blackery (the female advisor and a popular youtube musician) wasn't even born until 1991, midway through Series 5. This makes me feel incredibly old.

Ooooh, good find. The jester had *better* be a new character and not an awful attempt to recast Folly or Motley!

I see spider webs... wonder if that's an unused KMVR room?

Nice behind the scenes photos... and there was me thinking it was a real dungeon. So pleased there's and new Jester in town, and he looks promising.. a real jester like Folly and not Motley (who out stayed his welcome)

Be interesting to see how the CG works, I just hope it's as impressive as it was all those years ago. A painted background always looks so much better than a computer graphic.. and theses days im sure Cg is getting worse.

Nah they wont be allowed to die too soon, plus they would want to show off the dungeon. This feels more of an advertisement or a spoof.

I just hope this team treats it respectfully and not live up to their 'youtube comedic characters' and followers expectations. I like real people to be on the show.

I should stop having negative thoughts, but I just can't stop myself.

That's correct. The advisors are sitting in their own blue room and the dungeoneer is in a second.
This is because they didn't have time to build a set for the antechamber.

Nick Collett is playing a new Jester.
So far the only other NPC that I know of is Jessie Cave (from Harry Potter) who also plays a new character.

I should also add that some rooms from Knightmare series 3 (at least) are making a reappearance. I haven't studied them closely, but I don't think their hand drawn. Davie Rowe will be in the studio today, so I will try to make a point of asking him.
