No Craig Charles, unfortunately supposed TV Spod Geek Meister Dara O'notfunny is in it, but at least Jonathan Pierce is commentating.

Craig Charles in Red Dwarf was great, in Robot Wars not so great. Won't miss him from it.

In the same way that "100 novels you must read" is.

maybe mentioning Dara!

A piece of the original flooring, was that from some sort of field of play invasion a la Scotland Supporters at Wembley 1978?

Yay, Robot Wars :) Been waiting for this.

It'll be rubbish.

But I hated Craig Charles' shouty shouty presenting and Phillipa Forrester's condescending interview 'skills' - Dara O'Megabus and Token Lady can't be that bad, surely?

Token Lady? She's a fashion twitterer and instagrammer.... (There should be better nouns for that)

I liked the old Robot Wars, it was just the right amount of English eccentric, enthusiastic amateurs and kitsch tv. I have a horrible suspicion it will have become all slick and professional....

I used to like Robot Wars, and that was with zero interest in actual robots :)
I remember the kids playing a BBC game of the same name, that was quite fun
