Series 2: Winners

Mark Wickson and team were the first ever winners of Knightmare. Their quest was to free the Maid.

Mark arrives at a platform surrounded by darkness. The final letter of the spell he needs is in the corner, so they collect it to complete FREE.

Life force is fading, so they proceed quickly to the exit - a guillotine that slices downwards. They time the leap with care.
