The three-level Dungeon is set in an electronic world where the person actually going into the Dungeon would have to wear a helmet and will have his three advisors telling him what to do.

The programme's Internet fan-base is so strong that creator Tim Child applied for a National Lottery grant to produce a ninth series entitled "Knightmare VR", using "avatar" technology to digitally project the player into the dungeon rather than have a blindfolded player in a blue room. A pilot was produced, featuring Hugo Myatt as the voice of a new digital version of Tregard. However in Autumn 2005 producer Child announced that work on "Knightmare VR" was being halted after no UK broadcasters showed an interest in it. Child also reported that he now favoured going back to the "blue room" style of production for any future attempt at a revival. See more »
I loved this show when I was younger. It was one of the few kids' gameshows that has every been even vaguely taxing on the brain, featuring some reasonably complex puzzles and a lot of tricky (and very tense) timing exercises. It had fantastic visuals for the time, making use of a lot of bluescreen effects. And on top of all that it had a genuinely creepy atmosphere - something that I've never seen in any childrens' show. I'm nearly seventeen now, and if it was repeated on TV (or, even better, they made a new series of it) I would definitely throw style and social acceptance to the wind and make sure to tune in.
