I like the "whoosh" noise that Broadsword used for its credit at the end of the episode.

The clanging of the cell doors in Series 3 was definately an effective addition, in my opinion. I also liked how the screen zoomed in as the dungeoneers walked through, as if we (the audience) were physically following them from room to room.

As someone else pointed out.. it really hit home the impression of "no turning back".

Unfortunately with Series 4 venturing outside and the invention of "elf portals", it was no longer possible to use that sound :(

But sound effects-wise, I really liked the weird clanging noise of S6-8. No idea what it was meant to be, but it was cool.

In some cases they could link portal sounds, depending on the environment around them. For example, inside a castle/dungeon the Series 3 sound clip would have suited this, and dropping down a wellway could well have been adapted from Series 1/2
If the only way is onward how would you get home for tea?? :-/

I agree that would have been a really good touch.

I also liked the one-off portal sound used at the very start of Season 6 quest 1, wonder why it was only used that one time.
