YouTube meets Knightmare

In August 2013, four popular online celebrities took on the dungeon for a one-off episode of Knightmare, which was created as part of YouTube's Geek Week.

The new episode was produced at Epic Studios in Norwich, where Knightmare was filmed between 1987 and 1994.

Original cast members, Hugo Myatt (Treguard), Mark Knight (Lord Fear) and Clifford Barry (Lissard) reprised their roles. Nick Collett, who was involved in the Knightmare VR pilot, also returned.

They were joined by comedian Isy Suttie (Peep Show) and actress Jessie Cave (Harry Potter), as YouTube and creative partners ChannelFlip kept a strong British theme to the Geek Week schedule.

David Rowe, the artist behind the early dungeon rooms, added digital designs to bring the recreation to life.
