Team 2: Maeve, Christina, David and Lee from Lancashire.

Team 2's quest reached the first level and lasted for 12 minutes.

Treguard: "Any knowledge of previous quests will be of little use. The Silver Spurs of Squiredom awaits your success."


Level 1

The same first room was used for the start of the second quest, only with different letters. Maeve has to collect 'SESAME' in the correct order.

The very first episode of Knightmare ends as the dungeoneer leaves the room (see next page for details).

The quest continues with a bomb room, which they escape. But Maeve runs straight into another peril.

Treguard: "Warning team, worms be present on Level 1. All contact is deadly. Those who linger longer in this chamber may linger forever."

The team panic and almost direct Maeve straight into its path.

The team reach the Level 1 clue room, which is guarded by the wall monster. Treguard is not yet aware of the second malignant who guards the room.

Treguard: "This one is called Olgarth. Defeat him with wit, and you may gain knowledge."

Granitas: "This one is most definitely not called Olgarth. I AM GRANITAS OF LEGEND!"

The team score three and call out "I command you" to gain a bonus.

Granitas advises them that "all that glitters is not gold, and she who lies in wait values her appearance more than base metal".

The decide to take only one object from the table - a block of soap - leaving the comb and the gold behind.

Treguard: "Hurry team! For when Granitas sleeps, Olgarth awakens..."

They arrive at Lillith's chamber. She is looking rather unkempt.

She wants to do her hair, but all the team could offer her was a block of soap.

Lillith: "A block of soap!? Kindly explain how I am to comb my hair with that!"


Lillith: "Dragon's breath! I lose all patience with you! I shall just have to throw you out...

I have no time for those who fumble, so boulders CRACK and that ledge CRUMBLE!

The ledge disintegrates.

Lillith: "Nice of you to drop in!"

Treguard: "What a shame you didn't take the comb when it was so obviously needed."


One of the shortest quests in Knightmare.

Transitions between episodes

The first episode ended during this quest, so we encountered the first 'temporal disruption'.

Warning, team, complete temporal disruption approaching. Time is now the enemy.

Although all continues in your world, here time has flown, all adventuring must cease until you phase with us once more.

The fire behind Treguard now stops burning.

Treguard: "Will our dungeoneer come to a sticky end? And if so, why should you care? For here nothing is real, and everything surely is an illusion."


Subsequent episodes of Knightmare would begin with a recap of the previous episode, which was known as a 'Progress Report'.

The game resumed when Treguard announced "game on".


Anglia Television Logos

The original episodes broadcast on ITV in 1987 and the Challenge repeats showed this original Anglia production logo.

The repeats on the Sci-Fi Channel showed a newer Anglia production logo at the end, which must have been adjusted for those broadcasts.
