    [22x08] June 28th, 2015 [The Final Clarkson, Hammond, & May Episode]

    I gave this a 9 originally but since then I've been wondering why I didn't feel I could give it a 10, as I actually enjoyed both segments and was saddened by the end of an era. After thought I've realised that the missing element was, of course, Jezza, in the studio with the two other guys, all...

    [22x08] June 28th, 2015 [The Final Clarkson, Hammond, & May Episode]

    I was highly amused when the elephant was reverse-on to the camera. I'm assuming that May and Hammond were insinuating that Clarkson is a right old elephant's arse?

    Would you like the BBC to air the last 3 episodes of Top Gear?

    Actually, somewhat surprisingly, since Clarkson's 'sacking' BBC3 has shown at least two episodes a week and continues to do so, running further ones tonight (Easter Saturday), next Wednesday and Thursday, all in the 7pm slot. Clarkson may have gone, but the BBC is still using him to boost...

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    Tiff has been with them on the Live shows before, in the driving circuit segment and both presenting and driving, though I don't recall whether he's actually been in the arena with them. As for the concept of the Stig, as we don't know what 'it' looks like, it shouldn't be difficult to put...

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    Why do I find it strangely ironic that the BBC, having effectively sacked Clarkson this week, were perfectly happy to put out a repeat edition of Top Gear tonight on BBC3?

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    Ah well, I suppose it's fitting that he's going not with a whimper, but a bang. (No pun intended) (Sorry, T S Eliot)

    A Balanced Viewpoint - "Jeremy Clarkson is a Good Egg"

    Sadly, it didn't work. I'm not on Chrome, now working in Linux and Mozilla Firefox having had to strip out the complete laptop after being successfully scammed (more fool me, just don't trust anyone who phones you with your Talk Talk details). Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    Top Gear cleared (for once)

    I could be completely wrong, but I saw the first version of this story on the BBC news website as it come up and I'm pretty sure it didn't include the actual word in contention. I remember thinking that it must be *that word* otherwise the article couldn't make sense, but found it difficult to...

    A Balanced Viewpoint - "Jeremy Clarkson is a Good Egg"

    Apparently I have reached my '20 article limit' for the Telegraph. I didn't even know there was one. Can anyone advise how I can circumvent this?

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    Going back to Michael Simkins' article, if the 'fracas' was really about food (which I don't entirely believe and hardly seems relevant now) I have to say that I've been working on locations for about three years. Everyone I've met has stories to trade about the excellent quality of the food...

    Jeremy Clarkson Suspended Over Fracas

    I've worked on TV programmes, albeit in minor roles. If they say there will be hot food, and it doesn't arrive or it's run out by the time you finish filming, believe me, people get really grumpy. Just saying.....

    [22x01] January 25th, 2015

    Perhaps absence does make the heart grow fonder. I found that I was actually getting a bit excited again about the new series, and I really enjoyed this first episode. I think the Top Gear team have handled their whole situation extremely well. If the start of the series had failed to inspire...

    An Evening with Top Gear

    I get the distinct impression that all connected with the show have taken on board both genuine and spurious criticisms of the last season, and have come out with all guns blazing. This evening's broadcast, the simultaneous world-wide broadcast next week, the content of the new season - it's all...
