Surely if this was really bad, then wouldn't the filming of the remaining series also be cancelled?
Well. Some more detail:
"The Top Gear host has been suspended from the BBC after allegedly aiming a punch at a male producer, in an incident last week.
"The alleged assault was only reported to the corporation yesterday, and BBC executives took the decision to suspend Clarkson earlier today."
That *does* change things a bit. One: we need to find out what kind of punch it was. Two: we need to know what the fight was about.
Consolation: the odds of the show *not* being actually cancelled, ironically, just increased, depending on the ID of the producer. Provided it wasn't Wilman, if the BBC can come to terms with the producer the show can still go on.
This week's recording is tomorrow/would've been tomorrow. And an article on the last page mentioned it happened last week, but only reported to the Beeb this week.Anyone that has been at the recording this or last week? Maybe something happened during record that got cut out and is now interpreted as a "fracas"?
