Multiple sources are now reporting that iconic UK TV series The Crystal Maze will be returning this year in a one-off special that is likely to act as a backdoor pilot for a full series.

Multiple UK newspapers are reporting that this one-off special will be hosted by everyone’s favourite Time Lord/Mind-Controlling Rapist David Tennant, though The Guardian dismisses the reporting of him as host.

The show was most well-known for being hosted by Richard O’Brien, the eccentric actor and creator of hit musical The Rocky Horror Show, and was a massive hit in the UK, at its peak being watched by over 6 million people who regularly tuned in to watch six usually quite stupid contestants fail to perform simple tasks in a variety of themed zones before heading inside the ‘Crystal Dome’ to further look like idiots as they collected bits of shiny paper.
