I keep seeing a trailer for 'The Best of EarthxTV' on Freeview, featuring the captions "BIGGEST", "BADDEST", "BOLDEST". It feels like it should end with "BEST EQUIPPED" and maybe a "GOBLIN FODDER!!" for good measure. :D

The latest (and final) episode of Star Trek: Discovery, Life, Itself, has a scene in pink and purple woodland that immediately made me think of Knightmare Series 4.

Today's new episode of Doctor Who, Dot and Bubble, has some sequences that are very reminiscent of Knightmare dungeoneering. There's even some quite definite sidestepping to the left.
Knightmare: Kid-worthy, Naasty, Inspiring, Groundbreaking, Humorous, Treguard, Mesmerising, Adult-worthy, Rewarding, Essential.

I thought the same, haha! (I didn't notice the sidestepping though - it mostly seemed like early Series 1 with all that turning 90 degrees!) She also sounded exactly like Gretel in Ariadne's lair at one point. ;D Do you think it was a deliberate Knightmare homage?

In Knightmare we had on occasion the urgent need to drink something NOW in Dot and Bubble there was the urgent need to pass water instead :P
