The first episode of Knightmare will form part of Challenge TV's First Ever Episodes season on the weekend after Christmas.

The repeat of Knightmare episode 1, first seen on Children's ITV on 7th September 1987, is set to include a specially recorded interview with Hugo Myatt, who reprised his role as Treguard in this year's YouTube Geek Week episode of Knightmare. Hugo was first interviewed by Challenge in 2002 when Knightmare was included in its Christmas Cult Selection. He also provided continuity announcements for Challenge's repeats of Knightmare Series 1-2 earlier this year. More recently, Hugo has been lending his support (and the spirit of the Dungeon Master) to the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for David Rowe's Art of Knightmare book.

More recent reports suggest that an interview with Knightmare creator Tim Child will also feature. He also was interviewed for the 2002 Christmas Cult Selection. Challenge have released a photo of Hugo Myatt in costume as 1987 Treguard:

More information on the First Ever Episodes season, which will take place on 28th-29th December, is available on the Challenge website here, including links to a full 1st Ever Eps promo and a Knightmare-specific promo that depicts (fictionalised?) events before the first episode. Knightmare is scheduled for 7:30pm on Sunday 29th, repeated Thursday 2nd January at 7:30pm also, but please double-check in advance in case of last-minute changes!

Challenge TV is available on Freeview (46), Freesat (145), Virgin (139) and Sky (145). All Challenge watching opportunities are duplicated an hour later on the channel Challenge+1 (Sky 164).
