It also kind of spoiled it for me, as I realised just how much of it was rubbish. The first building Hammond comes to is behind the hall, and the opposite side of the river from where he was portrayed to be, the large barn he passes before it turns back is just 300 yards from the hall, the bridge Jeremy encounters is obviously never locked (I use it on my lunchtime walks, but curiously I hadn't noticed the old ford, will investigate that on my lunch tomorrow), there's a road bridge just a few hundred yards upstream of the footbridge that I use every single day, and when he does finally cross the river, he had to drive past the hall to come back in on the main drive.... I'm being pedantic, because otherwise it was rather funny.
HOW COULD I HAVE MISSED THAT. I was wondering the whole time what that elephant was doing there. Made me really dig hard as to what Top Gear episode that prop was from. I knew there weren't any elephants in the India special.Was the elephant in the room a literal elephant in the room? (And the missing of Jezza ofcourse)
I saw it too and didn't think of being the "elephant in the room". I was wondering okay that's odd that they have an elephant's butt there but thinking it, it is quite fitting with Jeremy. It's like he is mooning certain people.Was the elephant in the room a literal elephant in the room? (And the missing of Jezza ofcourse)
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?HOW COULD I HAVE MISSED THAT.

I noticed his bitching but when I thought back to the article by Richard Porter it's clear that Jeremy has a huge involvement in planning these episodes, if he really didn't want to do it then it wouldn't happen. He's just playing 'old man Clarkson' at that point, or at least that's what I believe.And I know some people are going to have a go at me for saying this but watching Clarkson bitch in the first part of the classic car film, albeit with the benefit of hindsight, there is a small part of me that won't be sad to see him gone.
