Keep your eyes peeled in the New Year for some of your other favourite actors in our new series TimeBusters on BBC 2. We have disguised them so well that we are sure you won't spot them - especially David "Pickle" Learner. (Write and tell us if you can - we'll send you a prize if you are right!)

We hope you have all been enjoying the sixth series of Knightmare, and that you agree with us that everyone's done an absolutely splendid job on the new titles and music. Requests for copies of the old theme however, have fallen on deaf ears, and we are sorry to say it is not available.

The strong arm of the law

Following in the footsteps of Mark "Lord Fear" Knight, Adrian Neil (alias Ridolfo) has been appearing in ITV's The Bill when he played a doctor. What a pity he didn't have to play a singer, perhaps they could have given him some lessons so that we don't all have to listen to him practising in the dressing rooms at the studio!

Meanwhile, Mark "Lord Fear" Knight is touring the country playing Hamlet with The Mediaeval Players, he really gets around.

Take Part

For all those of you who still don't know the selection procedure for appearance on Knightmare - here we go one last time! Providing that a seventh series takes place, application forms will be sent out in early 1993 to everyone who is on our database. When these are returned they are sorted out and the lucky few are called to audition, and after this a short list is drawn up with the final 30 or so teams. Then it is down to luck really, as the Producer never knows how many teams will be needed in advance. Remember - you have to be between the ages of 11 and 16 to appear.

A-Wooga! A-Wooga! (Will be the chant of the future)

The production team have just returned from filming yet another new series in Manchester. Cyberzone is the first ever Virtual Reality game on Television. It will be on BBC2 in the first week in January and stars Craig Charles (Lister in Red Dwarf). You need to be very fit to play the game so we chose sports personalities like John Barnes, Tessa Sanderson, John Fashanu and the gold medal winning Serl Brothers. They played against equally fit members of different organisations from around the country like the Girl Guides and Arsenal Ladies Football Team.

We have had our first Christmas card of the year from Sebastian Murphy (membership no. 709), Aged 8 from Stoke Bishop in Bristol. Thanks, Sebastian: Treguard and Pickle think it's smashing but Smirky is a bit worried that your card might give Pickle ideas above his station!
