Fort Boyard


I'm guessing if Fort Boyard got brought back in the UK, I think Leslie Grantham can still play Boyard in this. And I think Mr Chan can be used in this version.

Anything else?

I'd say keep it the same as the original Channel 5 series. Leslie and Melinda know what they're doing, and I really enjoyed those series'. Leslie IS Boyard for me.

I've never seen any other version though, so I don't really know about other characters, like who Mr Chan, are. Is he needed? If a new series was jsut the same as it used to be I'd be more than happy.

Yeah, he'd work in a UK series. It's just a shame Five don't want to make a new version emoticon

Well, why not Channel 4? They were originally gonna do a version (made by Chatsworth) in 1990, but due to refurbishment at the fort, it didn't happen. So that's when they made "The Crystal Maze".

I loved Fort Boyard, we had it in Germany, too. I reckon if it will come back to the UK it will involve celebrities. When our version came back in 2000 they replaced the contestants with celebritiee. The Professor was also replaced by an ordinary female host. But that version wasn't really successful, there were just one or two seasons on TV. I guess it was too expensive.

Is the person in the Watch Tower (in the 1990 German Version) Pere Fouras from the French Version? And there is only one clip of the revival version on YouTube.

That's funny. I did a research for your question, but unfortunately I couldn't find an answer. But I found something else. Apparently kabel eins ordered 9 new episodes and production for this third German version just started. It will be a celebrity version again and will air in 2011. So thanks for asking that question. emoticon

Edit: I did more research and found the answer to your question. The "tower keeper" was played by Michel Schourneau, who played the French Pere Fouras in 1990. However, they used a different voice for the TV airings.

LOL! emoticon
You're lucky! I wouldn't mind if we did get a celebrity version, it'd be better than none at all.

That photo is scary emoticon

I'm really sick of many revival game shows being for just celebrities (like Family Fortunes and Mr & Mrs). I think celebrity editions should be once per season, and it should be brought back for the public (like the previous seasons). And there should be a kids special (like the French version has done).
