A classic episode?

Jeremy, Richard anmd JamesDinosaurs, a dwarf, James May with a pretty girl and The First Lady of France singing about Marinas.

Never let it be said that the sixth episode of Top Gear was entirely predictable.

Better than that, we had a bona fide Rock God in the studio. But his status as a genuine hero of things that go up to 11 is not why Brian Johnson is worthy of special mention here.

He’s worth bringing up because he truly, properly loves his cars.

We’d be the first to admit that some of the stars in the Reasonably Priced Car are only part time petrolheads but when we get someone like Brian on the show it makes it all worthwhile.

Do you agree? Do let us know if the S in the RPC is still worth doing. Frankly, when we get a car-loving legend like Brian Johnson turning up we think it’s still a vital part of Top Gear.

And next week, in the last programme of the series, the theme of men with super unleaded in their veins continues as American chat show colossus Jay Leno takes his turn in the Lacetti.

Don’t miss it.
