The Quest 1.3: Knightmare Knews

By Keith McDonald

Latest news, including Mark Knight on The Bill, Raynor Bourton launching a charity, and the fifth Knightmare gamebook.


'Ello, 'Ello, 'Ello...

Our very own cavern elf - Stephanie 'Elita' Hesp - has been spotted in woodlands near her home town of Gravesend in Kent! This time, though, The Woodlands in question turned out to be a restaurant of that name! Not long after she turned up on Crime Monthly, Thames TV's answer to Crimewatch - and we are assured there is no connection...

And Mark "Lord Fear" Knight? He's been a bad boy on ITV's The Bill, and playing the piano in an abattoir in rural Wales! Perhaps he'll fill us in with a few more details on that one in time for the next issue of TQ, but in the meantime Sir Hugh de Wittless's horse has disappeared without trace! Could this be the end for Sir Hugh?

Odder still, Clifford 'Hordriss' Norgate has taken to wandering through the grounds of Newstead Abbey, near Nottingham, dressed as a 17th century monk! And wielding a butterfly net! You'll be able to see why in BBC 1's brand new children's series TimeBusters - coming soon to a television near you...

Treguard and the Beanstalk

In the next issue of TQ, there'll be a chance to win tickets to see Hugo "Treguard" Myatt in Jack And The Beanstalk this Christmas at the Wyvern Theatre in Swindon. We'll also have full details of times and dates in case you're not one of our lucky winners!

Coming soon: The Forbidden Gate

If your heels be nimble and light, You can get there by candlelight...

Cover of book 5: The Forbidden Gate

Setting out to explore a mysterious, overgrown path, Sam, Jimmy and Pippa discover they have stumbled upon a magic gateway to a world of dreams - the legendary Knightmare Castle. But Treguard, master of Knightmare Castle, has been taken prisoner by the dark powers of the dread Lord Fear...

Read carefully, for as Treguard and the group venture into the depths, you too must prepare for the ultimate test - the monstrous puzzles and sorcery of ITV's award-winning game series, Knightmare.

Can Treguard thwart the grim plans of Lord Fear and survive the dark challenge of the shadowy caverns below the castle?

Can you?

The fifth Knightmare book by Dave Morris will be available in all good bookshops in early September and promises a ripping yarn for Knightmare adventurers of all ages.

But be sure to keep the light on...

Blockbusters star on the hot spot!

Self-confessed avid Knightmare viewer Bob Holness was there at the launch by Rayner 'Skarkill' Bourton of Tendis, a sporting charity which aims to provide further facilities for people with disabilities. A fantastic day's entertainment at the Paddington Sports Club saw Paul "Motley" Valentine judging the fancy dress competition and the raising of an astonishing £2,750 for the charity.

Available in record shops now is an exciting special edition of Jeff Wayne's We Carry On, from his new musical version of Spartacus. All proceeds to Tendis.

Don't go!

Don't forget to tell us your club membership number when you write to us, and whether you've moved since last year so that we can keep our records up to date.

Curry and Pickle!

Listeners to Radio 5's Saturday morning show On Your Marks just before Christmas heard Mark Curry interviewing Tony Crowther and David "Pickle" Learner. Tony was there to describe his brilliant design for the Knightmare computer game and David to talk about the equally brilliant Knightmare Adventurers Club. Mark turned out to be quite a fan of the programme - but of course!
