Series 9 - Episode 3



“ACTIVATE!” So begins this week’s bout of bot-on-bot battles, with a new collection of weird and wonderful machines vying for one of the six spots in the series final.

Contenders include the whirling MR Speed Squared, the ungainly Tauron and the vulpine Foxic, as well as wedge-shaped designs Chimera and Heavy Metal.

But most eyes will probably be on heavy-hitter Thor, built and operated solely by builder Jason Marston who impressed the judges so much in last year’s heats that they brought him back for the final despite being knocked out in the early stages.

In short, the other contestants had better be ready for a hammering.


Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon present the third heat. Eight teams battle it out to win a single place in the grand final, pitting robots Foxic, Expulsion, Heavy Metal, MR Speed Squared, Thor, Tauron, Chimera 2 and Concussion against each other in the arena. The show begins with two group battles, followed by a head-to-head between the two overall winners.
