Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Campaigning in New Witch Haven, Beaujolais de Pfeffel is accused of being a lothario who draws power from Lord Fear's Mendacity Engine (as referred to in The Quest Volume 3 Issue 1) and makes it up as he goes along. He tries to assure the Grey Sisters that he is nothing of the sort: he has a plan fo...

Re: Series 4 Episode 10

The TV Times listing for this episode (as tweeted here) spells the dungeoneer's name 'Vicki'. It's safe to assume that TV Times got the episode details from an official source. I've updated the website.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Beaujolais de Pfeffel, borne back up by his supporters, succeeds in imposing temporal disruption on all the dungeon's decision makers. Maesandre is able to avoid this spell by reinventing herself as a Winterian elder, Lady Hail. With support from Ariadne, she hatches a plan to free the dungeon. Lady...

Re: Post-apocalyptic Knightmare could work

Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting, segaz. In both Knightmare VR (2004) and the YouTube Geek Week 2013 episode, there are hints that Lord Fear has taken over, only he doesn't seem to be doing much with his power. It would be interesting to have him and his minions presented as a controlling...

Re: Challenge TV 'talked endlessly' about bringing back Knightmare

When was Knightmare even on freeview regularly ? I think maybe six, seven years ago but even then it was only one or two episodes back to back. Not nearly enough to satisfy real enthusiasts of the show. :( To give you an accurate answer to your question: Challenge repeated Series 3 most recently fr...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

BeauJeau is facing woe. Despite getting his assistant Sajida to promise gold to everyone, many people are pitting themselves against him. He uses DISMISS more times in two weeks than Treguard used it in two phases, banishing a 21-strong group of nobles who stood against him. Many dungeon folk are ke...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Corbiss the Bemuser steps out a shower. Sorry for the unsettling image. It sounds like a Dallas it-was-all-a-dream rip-off too. Allow me to amend it to something more plausible. Corbiss the Bemuser steps out, a shower. This isn't the conclusion of a dream, but Corbiss has been sleeping. More precise...

To the tune of Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer (1998). Original song "DISMISS" said by the bearded master Knightmare, beside the blue blue screen Swerve swerve... there's the spinning blade Look at your shoes as the spell makes you fade, oh DISMISS away from the hearth and firelight Leaving with...

Challenge TV 'talked endlessly' about bringing back Knightmare

In a recent Twitter thread about Knightmare and how a revival could work, one tweet is particularly interesting. It's from Dom Wilkins, whose career is in TV scheduling. When I looked after Challenge we talked about bringing it back endlessly but was cost prohibitive for a small channel because of w...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

If things go according to - what's this word? - 'plan', I hope to be at the hotel between 4 and 5. PM. This relies slightly on my ability to catch trains, navigate streets, tie shoelaces etc.

I hope that won't delay things too much.

Wishing you all safe journeys.

Keith Richards

The Saturday Review section of today's Times has a photo of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on the cover, with the caption 'Never too old'. It reminded me of the caption competition on Interactive Knightmare in 2004, where the prizewinning caption of a picture of Beveryafraid (a.k.a. Garstang, the or...

Re: Knightmare clip at BFI event, 28th July 2019

The video clip I linked to does have flaws, but the one shown at the event was from a Challenge TV repeat. Some of the other clips had logos that weren't blurred out, such as a (poor quality) clip of Art Attack from a Children's Channel repeat. If the BFI ever does an '80s kids' TV event, I hope Kni...
