Team 5: Ben, James, Alan and Nathan from Salisbury.

The fifth quest of Series 6 was for the Crown and lasted 55 minutes.

Level 1

The team chooses the Crown. Ben emerges from the dwarf tunnels into the ruins of Dungarth - not seen since Series 4 (1990).

Spyglass: Lord Fear has Sidriss under an enchantment to make her fall deeply in love with Sylvester Hands.

Lord Fear: "I must be a powerful magician to make somebody fancy you, Hands. That's almost beyond the bounds of decent magic."

More series plot information: Lord Fear instructs Skarkill to find a red dragon, a move clearly designed to inflict major collateral damage.

Level 1 clue room. The clues are: a bar of gold, a bar of silver, a rope, and a horn. The scroll reads: "Gold to the East, Silver to the West".

They take the gold and the horn, before being chased by a pooka.

Into Wolfenden Centre, where Ah Wok and Julius Scaramonger are still competing for business.

Scaramonger tries to sell them a password to Level 1. Ben follows the advice from the scroll and buys a 'True Sight' potion from Ah Wok.

Ridolfo rescues them from yet another pooka, promising to turn it in linguine.

Ben uses Sidriss-gate as useful gossip to gain the password.

Ridlofo: "Scandal – I love it!"

A forest clearing, where Sidriss is fawning over one of Hands' smocks. (Yuck!)

Ben poses as a messenger from Hands and convinces her to drink the 'True Sight' potion.

Free of the enchantment, she turns on Hands and he scarpers.

The team earns the causeway code in return.

They tackle the causeway with skill. Some very tight margins!

This takes them to the gateway. Smirkenorff takes them to Level 2 without a fare.
