Did it ever end? I can't remember. It wasn't another Dungeons and Dragons was it?

..and I'm sure the 'Tony' was Tony Dortie, one of the presenters on the ill fated 1991 revamp of TOTP (where the acts were forced to sing live - Moby doing 'Go' being hilarious!). :)

Yeah, Jenny Powell..corrrr, up there with Michaela Strachan I reckon.

Tony Dortie, doesn't ring any bells can only remember that he was quite short, a bit chubby and had blonder hair, oh and he was a Londoner.
I guess I was just staring at Jenny too much to notice.

Knightmare TV Programme

Post by rtrgrl78 » Sat Feb 04, 2006 9:06 am

Hello,

Just been reading in the forumn and it was mentioned about Knightmare. I used to watch it too and think it may have been about 13 years ago! but would be interested if anyone knows the year.

Also recall a cove tape, a text one if mot mistaken from 'ZZAP' or 'Your Commodore 64' - it worked about once and it was half decent. Any one knows any more let me know.

Yes am afraid I was also a sad member of 'Games Master' also complete with the naff T-shirt. What can I say I was only about 14 ! :oops:

Ahh, good old kids' TV! How about...
  • Count Duckula
  • Century Falls
  • Box of Delights
  • The Little Vampire
  • Darkwing Duck
My friends and I always wanted to go on Knightmare but we were too scared of looking like complete idiots on TV to try.
