    Top Gear Presents: Extra Gear

    http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2016-04-27/top-gear-gets-behind-the-scenes-bbc3-spin-off-extra-gear Well, that's certainly promising. It plays to Rory Reid's background strengths, it creates extra content for the inevitable DVDs, and it's a potential backchannel for developing the new talent.
