Re: The Sixth Doctor

Colin Baker was after Peter Davison. Tom Baker was the one immediately before. Interesting useless stat; - As many actors to play the Doctor on TV have had the same surname as have had the same forename i.e. two Doctors called Baker, and two Doctors called Peter. (No, John Hurt doesn't count, becaus...

Re: Series 3 - Episode 13

He also often talked in the early years about our "time" being different from his, and about dungeoneers "crossing the boundaries of time". He called his era "The age of adventure", or "The time of adventure", and made it clear that that is not our time, so it might not have been the present. "Beyon...

Re: Series 3 - Episode 13

(Isn't Knightmare supposed to take place centuries before the introduction of cinema (or indeed Steven Spielberg !) It's ambiguous. The original idea appeared to be that it was set in the late 13th century, but in later series it was stated that it's set in a world that lies 'beneath' our own. It's...

Re: Re:Mary Miller

I've found an interesting interview with Jacqueline Pearce, the actress who immortalised the character of Servalan in Blake's 7 . She states that she was not the first choice to play the part, which was originally offered to... well well, Mary Miller! http://www.alternativeservalan.com/conventions/e...

Re: Series 3 - Episode 14

Like I say, it's not just Mellisandre who embodies this problem. But just because other characters are even worse for talking to teenagers like they're babies doesn't make me like Melly after all. (In the same way that, just because other dictators killed more people than Idi Amin killed, that doesn...

Re: Unintended Knightmare references in our lives

Re: Characters you wish they had played

I think Cliff Barry would have done a useful job playing an ambiguous/neutral figure. He made Lissard very sinister and even mysterious, and I sometimes think that was kind of wasted, because, hey, he's Lord Fear's seneschal, it's pretty easy to figure out whose side he'll be on. When he played Brot...

Re: Series 1 Appreciation Week

For all of its early teething problems, season 1 remains historic television, and comparisons with later seasons can be a little unfair. It has to be acknowledged that season 1 is where some of the best dungeon chambers and locations made their debuts. I would certainly put most of the 'architecture...

Re: Knightmare Geek Week Extended Episode

Recalling when Televirtual were trying to create TimeGate , most KM fans seemed eager about the idea, and it was a substantial change of format from Knightmare . Opposition to a format change on principle will probably be quite small. Objections are more likely to be based on whether the changes are...

Isn't it interesting - dare I say hopeful - that it's titled Knightmare Pilot, given what pilot episodes are usually used for...? :)
