Robot Wars was awesome. A bunch of amateur robot makersgetting obliterated by Matilda or Sir Killalot was a fine way to spend a Friday night.
Well, it’s soon to be making a welcome comeback to our screens after the BBC confirmed six new one hour episodes will be made. The show will have a new structure, which will mean more robots and more battles.
BBC Two and BBC Four controller Kim Shillinglaw said:
“Robot Wars is an absolute TV classic and Im thrilled to be updating it for the next generation of viewers.With new technological advances making for an even more exciting and immersive experience this is a fantastic example of the kind of content-rich factual entertainment that BBC Two excels at.”
The show last appeared on the BBC in 2003, and we can only imagine how much more impressive those mega-machines will be with advanced technology.No official date for the new series has been confirmed as yet, but we do know that battle will commence in Glasgow.
So, what are you waiting for guys, get building! Here’s some inspiration from the top ten Robot Wars battles of yesteryear.
