- Series | 6
- Played by | Mark Knight
Ah Wok was a stallholder who appeared in Wolfenden in Series 6.
His honest and humble approach attracts a lot of business. Dungeoneers are happy to trust him over Julius Scaramonger.
Ah Wok helps most of the teams, selling dragon mints, summoning spells and potions.
He even turns up in Witch Haven to sell a dungeoneer a witch's robe and broomstick.
Battle between traders
Ah Wok's success creates a rivalry with Scaramonger, which piques Lord Fear's interest.
Scaramonger had previously been reluctant to work for the Opposition, but he is now forced to reach out for help.
Lord Fear attacks Ah Wok with a samurai, but the questing team dispel it and earn some goodwill in return.
This eventually leads to Scaramonger's ruin.
Ah Wok's Chinese accent provided controversial humour but also a new challenge for dungeoneers.
On one occasion, the questing team is expected to modify a calling name due to his accent.
Welcome to my humble mobile empolium.
The character is played with a degree of sympathy, which helps it escape too much censure.
But Ah Wok is generally recognised as a character that worked for its time and context. The likeable Chinaman doesn't age as well as the rest of the show.
