Re: Series 4 Episode 7

Mellisandre finally appears (almost halfway through the series), stuck in a Thing That Constrains People ... seems like the crew realised Mellisandre hadn't been in it yet so just threw her into this episode. Mellisandre had a scene with Motley in episode 1, two quests earlier. (According to the Se...

Re: Vague memories I'm not sure happened?

An eyeshield sequence with a pooka in it. Yes, in Series 5. It just popped up for a moment and disappeared again, and nobody commented on it. It's worth adding that the end credits of some Series 4 episodes (5, 6, 8, 14) included a wooded path where the spirit appeared: Series 4 end credits.jpg It'...

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

Re: Chessington Meetup 2017

I can recommend theme park days out with the Knightmare community and Chessington specifically - and as I haven't yet combined both, this sounds ideal.

If you would like to phase with us for the World of Adventures, do let us know.

Re: 30th Anniversary Knews?

Hi, Dux Bellorum (James?). Thanks for starting this thread. There may have been others who felt the same as you. In terms of whether you need to feel sad, I think it's a matter of perspective. In my opinion, too much emphasis is placed on round number anniversaries in general. Knightmare is special ...

Re: Knightmare actors in The Bill

Thanks, Annie. This is a useful list. I'm looking forward to seeing John Woodnutt's appearance via UKTV Play a week or so from now.

Presumably if they show episodes post-1992, we'll also get to see the unknown episode which reportedly includes somebody watching Knightmare.

Re: knightmare live at fringe

As reasons for missing Knightmare Chat go, this is a good one! Seeing Knightmare Live for the first time is exciting. It was the Fringe that helped make it so successful. I hope you have a brilliant evening. Looking forward to hearing about it.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Ridolfo, an old friend of Corbiss the Bemuser's, has become unpopular. With increasingly lewd lyrics and discordant singing, the Venetian troubadour is causing widespread offence. Corbiss is urged to condemn him, but seems reluctant to criticise the Venice wailer. Meanwhile, the Dunwold Thump appear...

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.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Corbiss the Bemuser is under fire. A while ago, he discovered that many former Knightmare adventurers have debts resulting from their applications, travel, lodgings etc. Corbiss yearned to reach across the divide between dimensions - he can walk on water so how hard can it be? - and, after chronicli...
