So that’s it for series 13. Seven weeks of telly that our self-confessed ‘glass-half-empty’ exec producer Andy Wilman described in his blog before show one as ‘the same old shit’. In a good way.
But how was it for you? Best series yet? The consensus in the office is that show six was the killer episode – the one with the classic car rally. Dinosaurs, a dwarf, James May with a pretty girl and a bonafide rock god in the studio.
And that put extra pressure on the telly team for tonight. We wanted to go out with a bang so we saved the best guest until last, brought back the Cool Wall with Richard on the cherry picker and ended on that epic (but dark) Aston V12 film. There was talk of ending the series as that faded out – no credits, nothing.
What happens now? A little bit of time off for the crew and then we’re straight back into filming for series 14 later in the year. If you want to wade in with your comments for that, now’s your chance…
