Knightmare: A Guest Post by Tony Lee Williams

Knightmare logo

In the Summer of 1998, instead of playing football with my twelve year old friends, I was having a Knightmare. Successfully passing the audition process,  we arrive at the reception of Anglia Studios in Norwich. Here we meet the current team from Oxfordshire (who will go on to be the first team to conquer the dungeon). The production always holds one team in reserve as they never know when the next team will finish.

Taking us down to the studio to begin our adventure, we cross the floor over cables and past cameras to the three stools that sit in front of the chest. Treguard sits behind us and we do a run through of the first room to get rid of any nerves. I look up from the television in the chest, which is the same as for the viewer at home, and see one of the production staff walking around in red slippers.

It started with a title: a special guest post from Den Patrick

It started with a title. My girlfriend at the time commented my ears were ‘so pale they looked like porcelain’. I was hideously hungover and being pale has always been my standard look. ‘The Boy with the Porcelain Ears, that would make a great book title’, I said. That was nearly ten years ago. I […]
