Marta

Marta the Tavern Maid, played by Jacquelin Joyce in Series 7 of Knightmare (1993).

Outside of the tavern, Marta got herself into some unfortunate scrapes.

Like Fidjit, she found herself the victim of Sidriss's magical mistakes. Sidriss accidentally turns Marta into a cat. When she tries to reverse the spell, Marta turns into a dog.

Marta also gets captured and locked in a box because she knows the combination to the Trial by Spikes.

Masquermaide

A challenge for Marta is keeping the male characters in check. During one quest, she must deal with Hands disguised as a minstrel.

By the end of the series, Hordriss the Confuser had become besotted with Marta.

To exploit this, Lord Fear turns his seneschal Lissard into a replica of Marta - but he can't resist asking the new-look henchman on a date first.
