1. Wee Willie Winkie
Nursery rhyme and its eponymous character, derived from William Miller's Scots poem Willie Winkie of 1841. He was the answer to the final Level 1 clue room question of Series 3: "...who was it who told us it was time to go to sleep?", as asked by Brangwen to Team 12 of Series 3 (and later used as Riddle 7 of Section 3 in the riddle book for the Knightmare board game). She accepted "Wee Willie Winkle" as the truth. One might hope that the disappointment of their curtailed quest was sweetened by their use of rude words on national television.

Other 19th century rhymes featured in Series 3 include The Owl and the Pussycat and Jabberwocky.
