Knightmare in The Mirror

By Nicholas Lam

Letters in support of Knightmare have been appearing in the Friday letters column in The Mirror, which is dedicated to television.


On 21st December, a letter from David Sim (Skelmersdale, Lancs) was published saying:

If there's one TV programme that should be repeated it's Knightmare. It was compelling, exciting and unique. Fantasy is very popular at the moment with Harry Potter and The Lord Of The Rings, so this would fit right in.

David Sim

Tom Murphy then e-mailed them to let them know about his Bring Back Knightmare Petition site. A week later, on 28th December, the following was published:

D Sim thinks Knightmare should return (TV Letters, December 21). He's not alone, there's an online petition to bring back this superb and imaginative programme: thegreatestquest.co.uk

Tom Murphy

This site has since been replaced with Alan Boyd's new campaign site: bringbackknightmare.co.uk. The Mirror mention follows a couple of other recent phone calls by Ben Maydon and Tom to the Tommy Boyd radio show, plugging the site.

Thanks to Dragon Rider for posting the first letter on the forum.
