Excellent stuff. Maybe a show slightly out of some people's age-ranges here but it's quite rightly regarded as one of the best things CITV ever made, so all repeats are welcome.

Challenge previously showed all eight series from December 2002 to March 2007, even so it'll be great to see again!

It is a great game show, but I always thought it could have worked very well as a straight Drama, in the same vein as the "Dramarama" episode "Mr Stabs", especially with such a good lead in Hugo Myatt as Treguard.

"Falsehood!"

Used to love this. Came in from work on a friday in '89 just in time to catch it.

Whenever Hordriss appeared, I just had to shout "'It's The Nimon"..!

Disappointed but not surprised to see a new ITV Studios global entertainment caption inserted to cover the mix to the Anglia knight production caption. I did a sad face when that happened.

I hope Network don't start getting supplied with doctored source material.....

Yeah, the Anglia knight was intact when these episodes were last repeated in 2004-7, although when Sci-Fi repeated them in the late 90s they had a then-current 'triangle' Anglia endcap. Rather anachronistic to credit a show to a production company that didn't exist until 20 years later, surely?

Yes, the ITV Studios cap, was disappointing and rather irritating.!

Also, that bar appearing briefly, at the start of part one and two, with 'Challenge Late Zone' emblazoned within, despite the same wording in the DOG in the corner.

Inexplicable.!

Anyone seen the new special edition on YT, nice effort, and done in the same studios.

Only gripe is Tregard's lost his excellent set, it's well done, though.
