Other shows or games that remind you of Knightmare but aren't official derivatives.

BBC or whatever channel gets Timegate

Post by Gerz » Tue Feb 25, 2003 3:36 pm

If the BBC or whatever channel (hopefully not channel 4) get Timegate, and it is a sucess, maybe we should ask them to show Knightmare, as from the screen shots of Timegate I seen, it seems pretty simular to Knightmare (obviously as Tim Child made them both)
What do you think?

Well, the chances of someone acquiring Km are pretty high as they stand at the moment. If TimeGate is a success then it will be almost certain that Km will get another series!

If, say, the BBC get TimeGate (which I have heard on the grapevine is likely) and it is a success, they'll do the Weakest Link===>Dog Eat Dog trick and get more of the same - i.e. Knightmare!

I wish they'd hurry up and officially commission TimeGate! I'm getting really agitated!!

I doubt Anglia TV would allow the BBC (ITV's chief ratings opponent) to have the episodes.  :(

Btw, Dog Eat Dog is worse than the Weakest Link and Km would be just as good as TimeGate! Just thought I'd better add that!

I too doubt this would ever happen. Apart from issue of the ITV/BBC rivalry, I think the best we can hope for with old KM is a digital channel like Challenge?/FTN/Sci-Fi etc. However, if a new series happened and was successful, it might help our efforts to get such a minority channel to show the old series again.

...Dog Eat Dog...
Oooh, dearie, that sounds like the time I caught Festus biting Velda, it does. Except, of course, Festus isn't a proper dog, dearies!

I agree with jonesy... BRING KNIGHMARE BACK!!!!  It would be nice if BBC would show Knightmare... the other channels arent shown in Finland... unless I can get mom to buy a digital TV, but the chance of her buying one at the moment is zero

Hi,

Just out of interest, if you're in Finland, how did you originally watch Knightmare?
