Robot Wars: Series Ten, Episode One
October 23, 2017 4:33 AM - Season 10, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Teams of amateur robot fighting enthusiasts battle it out over a series of rounds in a huge purpose-built arena aiming to become the Robot Wars Champion. The teams this week are Donald Thump, Behemoth, Sabretooth, Apollo, Apocalypse and The Swarm. Along the way, they must dodge arena hazards, menacing house robots and the all new Fog of War. Let battle commence!

Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon present, with commentary by Jonathan Pearce.

In this first explosive episode, a returning roboteer has a taste for victory, an old favourite from the original series tries to prove its doubters wrong and Robot Wars gets presidential with perhaps the world's first satirical fighting robot. The teams are tasked with surviving brutal group battles and nightmarish knockout rounds in order to make it into the heat final. But that is not all - this series, there is a playoff battle for third place, culminating with the second and third place robots battling it out in a massive Ten Robot Rumble for a wildcard spot in the grand final.

The teams this week are Donald Thump, Behemoth, Sabretooth, Apollo, Apocalypse and The Swarm. Along the way, they must dodge arena hazards, menacing house robots and the all new Fog of War. Let battle commence!

I've gotta say the last few minutes was basically one of my tv highlights of the year!

Wow, that final battle was a cracker. Apollo is I'd say the superior design, but Behemoth's driving was excellent and won them the match. And I love the idea of a 10-robot-rumble. Glorious chaos.
