THE combatants of BBC series Robot Wars have decided to settle their differences peacefully.
Viewers watched nonplussed for an hour as Sir Killalot and Dead Metal fronted multilateral peace talks, carefully engineering a road map for peaceful coexistence that would see the show’s arena divided into several autonomous zones.
Robot soldier Sir Killalot said: “So much WD40 has been shed over the last 18 years, and for what?
“We’re determined to find a lasting, constructive solution to our conflict. Despite being stereotyped as bloodthirsty metal gladiators, our whirring blades are equally well suited to agriculture and I’m certain there is an audience for a show called Robot Market Garden.”
Producers tried to inflame tensions between the robots but instead the relations between them became increasingly cordial with Sir Killalot inviting Dead Metal and family around for Sunday lunch.
Fan Tom Logan said: “I tuned in hoping to see two excitingly-named metal oblongs fighting to the death, but instead they were agonising over an addendum to Article 54b of their peace treaty.
“Apparently next week they’re notarising the documents, could be worth tuning in for that.”
