5 characters you'd like to see return

How might you change Knightmare if a new series were to be made?

5 characters you'd like to see return

Post by Canadanne »

Imagine that a new series was to be made, following the success of the Geek Week episode, and that Treguard, Lord Fear & Lissard would remain, but you were also allowed to pick ANY OTHER FIVE characters from the show's history to return, played by the same actors. Which five would you want to see again? Feel free to explain your choices if you want.

The early part of a quest always should have a wall monster, and my favourite of them was Golgarach.

Sylvester Hands, so long as Paul Valentine doesn't get the voice muddled up again. :-P

Elita AND Cedric so we can finally have the ultimate duel-by-insults.

And probably Mildread, because she could be so unpredictable.

Ooh decisions, decisions...

1) I would hope there would be room for another jester as I would love to see Alec Westwood back as Folly.

2) It would be awesome if David Learner would come back as Pickle.

3) Paul Valentine definitely needs to come back as Sly Hands!

4) I would love to see Smirky back

5) Finally a bit of Brother Mace back in the mix would be good.

That combo would probably be my ultimate choices :-))

Miss Grimwold would be awesome.
I also really liked Julius Scaremonger, thought he was underrated.

In a perfect world id also say Mogdred but sadly that an't happen unless they re-cast. Would love to see some kind of reference to him like we had with Folly in the youtube video.

I think there is also room to bring back the witch who was having a rivalry with Lord fear in Series 7-8

but lets not forget Hordriss.

The witch Lord F was rivals with in season 7 was Queen Greystagg. The one in season 8 was Maldame. They were both played by Iona Kennedy, but they never appeared in the same seasons.

Ah, Greystagg that's who I meant.
Yes I remember now because the one on series 8 had the calling name of 'Malice' who was a character on series 4. Ok we don't need to see her again then.

Maldame's calling-name was 'Spite', not Malice. Malice's calling-name was 'Merris', which might be the cause of the confusion.

In fact, although I wouldn't put her in the five I'd want to see back at all costs, I wouldn't mind seeing Malice brought back. She was quite an interesting, ambiguous character. It was a side to her I homed in on when writing When Five Tribes Go To War.

I would quite like that actress back who played Malice and Gundrada. Would have liked to have seen her do more than 1 series. Although given her swordsmanship at the end of season 4, Gundrada may have come a cropper before too long!! ;-)

Samantha Perkins? Hmm, I enjoyed her enthusiasm, but I think the characters were rather better than the actress really.

That's not right either, we're both wrong. LOL the web site says
But Maldame, aptly summoned by 'Spite' (also one calling name of Malice in Series 4),

I think that's saying that *Malice* used 'Spite' as an alternative calling-name. I don't recall which episode that was in though, but usually she used 'Merris' as the calling-name.

Malice never used Spite as a calling name, so the website is wrong if it says that.
