    nuclear submarine

    longtime lurker, first time poster - just had to share this.

    my husband teaches theater at a local college here in florida, and one of his students owns a yacht maintenance company. he's ex-military, and was hired to sail a yacht out to meet a TG producer about 100 miles offshore where they were filming in a brand new royal navy nuclear submarine. my husband let him discuss his experience in class. i asked my husband who the producer was, and he says he thinks the name was Renton? apparently this producer is the one who coordinates all of the military stuff they do.
    they were bringing said producer back to land (gulf of mexico, btw), but i guess more people wanted to come back with him (didn't like the sub?) but they had only contractually agreed to get the one guy.

    i don't know exactly what they were doing on the sub, just thought it was a neat little tidbit and insight into next season. he's going to try to get pictures. i'll post them if i can get them.

      Cool!

      I wonder if it's for Top Gear or just one of the DVDs instead though.

      ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

        Perhaps they found the wreck of Top Gear Jag, and initiated a top secret mission where the boys construct an enormous ship with precision stability equipment and long grappling claw in an attempt to recover Black Stig.

        How hard can it be?

          DON'T SAY THAT!

          It happened a bit late if it were for one of the DVDs; both Jeremy's and the TG DVD were filmed over the summer. I'm thinking it's for the show.
          “Relationships - of all kinds - are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.” ?

                Jeremy revealed his sub trip during the recent super-injunction fuss:

                26 Oct 2011 - The Sun
                27 Oct 2011 - The Telegraph
                If the other two were involved, surely similar boasts would have been made in their media spots, for example Richard's reviews:
                and James:
                I've always had a strangely pleasant recurring dream where I'm stuck in tight confines with sweaty manly blokes pressed against me, doing sweaty manly things with spanners and oil-guns. Last week, my dream came true.

                      Could this be for one of Jeremy's documentaries?

                        Sorry to disappoint everyone but this is what Jeremy wrote in the Sunday Times last week:




                        It turns out that the reason he wants to be shut into a submarine is that he can go cold-turkey on the nicotine!
