Re: Knightmare urban myths

Yes, i agree that the story seems plausible. Both of you present very convincing cases for the theory.

<r>Yes, as you say their quest could have been even shorter. They also had a rather pointless empty room first-up, which added time.<br/> <br/> <B><s>[b]</s><E>:question:</E> Is this fact or urban myth?<e>[/b]</e></B> Akash & co would have had an even shorter quest, as they originally scored 0/3...

Re: Phrases used in Knightmare

And finally... does anyone know if the " Ooooh, naaasty " catchphrase was borrowed from Leslie Phillips in The Navy Lark (consciously or otherwise)? It may just be coincidence, but their delivery is so similar, I'm wondering if Hugo Myatt was a fan! Hugo has answered this question himself...

Re: Phrases used in Knightmare

This thread might be a useful place to note some of Knightmare's other mysterious incantations. Here are a few that come to mind. My phonetics are only approximate. Morghanna in Series 3, preparing to zap Martin: "Dahrius ivah. An end to the quest" Lord Fear in Series 6, freezing Matt: &q...

Re: Knightmare urban myths

MYTH: The final quest in season 8, Team 7, was just eight minutes long, the shortest of all time. REALITY: Poor ol' Aqash's team (S02 T06) had the shortest quest of all time at just shy of ten minutes. (And given the strong rumours of a fix to get them past the clue room, they were lucky to last th...

Re: The KM Top 10 of Everything

I have mixed feelings about the ending of S3 T6, coz their quest could have become even more exciting. It had the great appearance of a sinister new antagonist, who made it quite clear that she would encounter them again soon, but then Ross fell off the path. It seemed like such a waste of a great p...

Re: The KM Top 10 of Everything

Today's offering is "Top Ten Dungeoneer Demises." >:-] A tricky choice, had to leave out several very good ones.... 10 Goin' down. Not one, but three teams. S1T2, S2T6 & S2T11. There was always something enjoyable about a dungeoneer demise in Lillith's cavern. The realisation that they...

Re: The KM Top 10 of Everything

Yes, i liked Adrian Neil as well. It was a pity that he didn't return for another series. The charming minstrel Ridolpho just misses out on my next Top Ten: Top Ten favourite characters. (In reverse order.) 10 Lillith Dramatic character, who really provided some fear factor in level 1. Personally te...

Re: The KM Top 10 of Everything

Ok, now that i have finished a review of all eight series, some great posts elsewhere by Canadanne about Knightmare awards have inspired me to revive this thread and put together some of my own favourites for consideration.... Starting with Favourite Series . (In reverse order, of course.) 8th: seri...

Re: Positive things about Series 8

S8 was an interesting series for me. It certainly had a distinct feel from any other series. I like the way that it generally returned to the dungeon concept of the early series. The rooms looked good, altho there wasn't a vast amount of variation from one quest to another. Despite the fact that the...

Re: Series 8, Episode 10

So the final episode of what was (sadly) to be the last series. :'( Team 6 resumed after their short-cut and unlocked the door, then dodged the fireballs quite neatly. They encountered Hordriss who was held in a trap by LF. The Crown was also in sight on a ledge. At the third time of asking they use...

Re: Series 8 Episode 9

Team 6 encountered Stiletta, warned her of danger and returned her green dagger. She told them the secret short-cut to level 3. Loved the inadvertent: "She's behind you!" ;) In fireball alley they nearly walked Dunstan straight into a fireball 8-o before they located the entrance to the sh...

Re: Series 8 - Episode 8

Team 5 encountered another Brother Strange. Treated him the same way and received a code and a "FLOAT" spell. Decided to trust the 1st monk as they thought the 2nd one was too generous and, like LF, he referred to a code rather than an order of opening. The difference between the real char...

Re: Series 8 - Episode 7

Michael learned the binding spell ("KNOT") that they needed from Sidriss-the-confused. Entered the moving-floor puzzle. They had clearly seen this room from S7 as one of the advisors groaned and there was a comment about: "Like that kid did." They were pursued by Snapper-Jack and...

Re: Series 8 - Episode 6

Nathan haggled well and swapped the gold for a magic book. In the next room they deployed the globe for Maldame, but for no reward. :( They arrived in the fireball room and were given the hurry-up by goblin horns. Unfortunately Nathan was told to step left one pace too soon and he fell thru a gap in...
