A message from Tim Child on the Knightmare Discussion Forum:

On 7th September 2007 it was exactly 20 years since the first episode of Knightmare was broadcast on Children's ITV.

Knightmare featured in a BBC Four programme called 'Children's TV On Trial: The 1980s'.

Okay, nothing to do with the Knightmare as we know it, but a new ride at the Camelot Theme Park in Lancashire has been named 'Knightmare'!

Sadly we have to report that John Woodnutt, who played Merlin and Mogdred in Knightmare has died aged 81. John had a long and varied career as an actor, appearing in a large number of British films and shows.
