Robot Wars

Series 9 - Episode 2



Part of the fun of this new incarnation of Robot Wars is seeing old battlers from the original series return, only to be brought low by the new generation of faster, more powerful young ’bots.

For example, last series saw the destruction of fan favourite Razer and the early defeat of the seemingly impregnable Behemoth, and we’re sure the routings rankled for engineers once ranked among the best in the arena.

Still, a revamped Behemoth is back this week for another shot at glory, taking on newer machines with names that sound vaguely like brands of male deodorant such as Cobra, Cherub and Eruption. Hopefully, there’s life in the old robo-dog yet.


Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon present the second heat, as eight teams battle it out to win a single place in the grand final, pitting robots Cherub, PP3D, Draven, Push to Exit, Hobgoblin, Behemoth, Cobra and Eruption against each other in the arena.
