Re: Series 4 - Episode 16

It seems an obvious observation, but doesn't appear to have been made before: this episode marked the halfway point in Knightmare's TV run as both the end of Series 4 of 8 and as Episode 56 of 112. In terms of minutes, perhaps the halfway point falls elsewhere as not all episodes were precisely the ...

You can watch it on the Knightmare Live Facebook page along with all the previous sessions. We're a couple of weeks away from their first onstage me...

Clue objects they shouldn't have left behind

As we know, various Knightmare quests ultimately failed because the team left behind a clue object that was needed later. I was curious about which objects, so I made a list of the confirmed ones. Series 1 Lamp Comb Horn Series 2 Shield Gauntlet Ice pack Divining rod Potion Series 3 Crayon Gauntlet ...

Much insulting of Melly by Gundrada: "Some silly little dungeon-maid, all curls and no muscles."

That may explain Mellisandre's apparent curiosity about Gundrada's muscles in this publicity photo:

Re: Series 4 Episode 3

It was the only scene we filmed on our first day of filming, we spent about five minutes negotiating it and I remember saying to the rest of the team when we were at our hotel that evening, "If that was just the first challenge, what will the rest be like?" That's interesting to consider in a broad...

Re: Jedi Temple Challenge

Episodes 3 and 4 of Jedi Temple Challenge (JTC) are now online too. I wonder if they made Episodes 4, 5 and 6 first. There's an episode of The Crystal Maze where Richard Ayoade takes exception to the phrase "You've got this." Enjoying JTC requires one to make peace with that phrase. Knightmare and R...

Re: 2000AD Magazine: Survival Geeks - Crisis Of Infinite Nerds

James, I'm glad you were the one to bring this news to the forum, since it was you who told us about the previous meeting of Knightmare and 2000AD: Edmund Dehn starring in Judge Minty . For all the great Knightmare fanart that's been created over the years, there's something special about a long-run...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 3

Giles (team 8 dungeoneer) mentioned he noticed the whirr of the motor from the beginning of the scene, before filming started - but the machinery could have had an analogue speed setting that was set slightly differently each time the device was set up. Brett, I regret that I'd forgotten about this...
