Thanks to Knightmare Live, there's more than one Lord Fear around these days. An article from The Times suggests they will benefit from Brexit in their continental misdeeds:

Re: Anyone - revolving disc in Series 3 and 4

Sorry, my mistake. I was going by Giles' comments: "It would be interesting to hear how your team's second chance came about, if you had one!" I fell off the turn table in the first room. it was nerves really. I stepped on,lost my footing and went off. We went back into the "green room" area and as ...

Re: Anyone - revolving disc in Series 3 and 4

Thank you. If they built a motorised device, that would explain why they reused it in (every quest of) Series 4: they wanted to get their money's worth out of it.

By my count, it was used six times in Series 3 and eight times in Series 4. Or nine times if we include your team's second chance, Brett.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Igneous becomes more and more outspoken. He claims he is still under the influence of the TRUTH spell cast on him in Series 2 but this does not lessen the offence he is causing. Corbiss the Bemuser is urged to act and, though he is fond of the wall monster's redness, he finally responds by turning ...

Anyone - revolving disc in Series 3 and 4

How was the revolving disc in Series 3 (the spindizzy) and Series 4 (the Place of Choice roundabout) operated? Was there a member of the production crew turning it or was it automated?

Re: True or False trivia question

Thanks, Brett. Even if the crumbling bridge had been in Series 3 and 4, I'm not sure it would have fitted your statement, which also referred to Series 5. Beyond graphics, that also applies to the revolving disc which served as the spindizzy in Series 3 and the Place of Choice roundabout in Series 4...

Re: Series 3 - Episode 14

The pace and variety of Series 3 is well demonstrated in this episode. In just over three minutes we get a ghost, an armoured swordsman, a catacombite, a floating skull (Knightmare's best "hurry-up" scene?) and an oracle. Martin picks up a pineapple followed by cheese and then bread. He's well on th...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Corbiss the Bemuser has been inspired by a performance from his favourite troupe of troubadours, the Absurd Lute Boys. As a show of power, he tries to banish the white from his hair. But despite having Hordriss as a brother, he can't seem to turn his barnet red. Even using a the capacity of a handhe...

Parody of theme song from Cheers

Why Hordriss disappears to the tavern from time to time. Treguard too. Based on the theme song from Cheers a.k.a. Where Everybody Knows Your Name (recorded by Gary Portnoy in 1982). Original lyrics Making your mark in the caverns dark Takes everything you've got Taking a break from being summoned Su...

Re: Knightmare On DVD?

Yes, I am the original "Leggy1210" that posted the weekly episodes way back when, as well as the other other Challenge TV clips. I'm really surprised the Knightmare community hasn't yet come together to fund a DVD release of one of the most amazing cult TV shows! What are we waiting for?! Good to s...
