    Oh yeah, DER! I of all people should have known that! :p But do they have the budget? Just look at how cheap the new red dwarf episodes are compared to the old ones.

    What original series. 1 and 2 are fairly cheap. I would say they had the look of series 3 in cost.

    Ironically the BBC has a sports rights sharing deal with Eurosport too (also owned by Discovery, who own Scripps), so if some bright spark decided to make Robot Wars a 'sport' it could end up on there too, Eurosport will show anything loosely related to 'sport' lol

    Isn't the problem with Robot Wars just that it's an insanely expensive show that would need to get GoT-level audience figures to be even vaguely economical in a post-nineties fragmented multi-channel marketplace?

    Such sad news but on the other hand the better show Battlebots is coming back with series 3 on spike sometime in Spring.
