A new Time Commanders trailer has popped up for the return of the show on December 12th (time to be confirmed) 2016 on BBC4. The show will be hosted by Greg Wallace who those on this side of the pond will know from MasterChef.
While the trailer above shows them engaging in a Napoleonic-era battle the first episode will head back in time to a fight between Scipio and Hannibal.
From the BBC…
“This time, a team of wrestlers will attempt to rewrite history by defeating Scipio and preventing him from taking the city. Playing Hannibal and his Carthaginians, they’ll be defending their hometown. Up against them, will be a team of historical board game enthusiasts taking on the role of the Romans, in a fight that will set the course of European history for centuries to come.”
I don’t think it needs to be stated how exciting this is. The original show was awesome and it will be great to see this back on TV, albeit on BBC4. Hopefully, after its short run of three episodes, it will gain enough viewers to make it to the big time!
