Mr Bean was shown attending the funeral of a "David Campbell" on Comic Relief this evening. :)

I was reading about the charity Combat Stress and couldn't help but be reminded of the name of a certain Knightmare obstacle.

One scene in 1990s The Tomorrow People serial The Rameses Connection features a cat shooting energy bolts in a room with Ancient Egyptian decor.

Rievaulx Abbey is on TV again this week, in Secret Britain (BBC1) on Wednesday at 9pm. And in last week's episode, they were shown a weather phenomenon known locally as 'dragon's breath'!

Marta, who accompanied Hordriss, spends her time ordering fish in the canteen and creating a series of 'Oneness' idents. Nothing suspicious about that.

Not even, it seems, when 'Marta' got Hordriss to appear in one of them.

After Theresa May's speech at the Conservative Party Conference, it was somebody's job to collect the lost letters.

After last weekend's Doctor Who, people are wondering who the Timeless Child is. Until we know more, I'm happy to treat it as a nod to Knightmare. You just have to remove the eless.

In this case eless is more. :)

I was watching some old clips of The Chase on YouTube yesterday.

In this particular clip, the contestant was asked who would dress in a costume known as "Motley".

Naturally, the correct answer was of course jester.

Star Trek: Picard has so far featured elf portals a.k.a. teleportation doorways (though admittedly older Star Trek episodes had examples, plus the obvious transporter pads) and a corridor with blocks that seem to slide from one wall to the other, reminding me of Knightmare's Block & Tackle.

It seemed appropriate to learn of the Doctor's creative influence in an episode whose title includes the Knightmare creator's name.

Once upon a time in the Reality TV shows thread, I joked about a Knightmare version of 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' when I wrote:

I've Insobriety, Yet Miaow To Fear. The Dungeon's alcoholic denizens camp out in Fetlock Jungle (yes, it's been reclassified) and must perform animal impressions for the Opposition to earn ale.

This year, I'm A Celebrity is foregoing its usual setting in Australia and will take place at a castle. Gwrych Castle to be precise. Here's hoping for lots of Knightmare references from ITV, ideally intentional references.

Although Gwrych Castle wasn't a Knightmare filming location, hosts Ant and Dec reportedly "pitched a lot of castles", so perhaps one of Knightmare's was considered.

Speaking of ITV, someone by the name of Fear has just emerged victorious in one of their other shows (click here for article).

Makes me wonder if he'll use some of his recently earned winnings to invest in a peerage...
