Hello again. So here we are, approaching the final show in this series of Top Gear. Yes, only six shows this time around for various complicated reasons that I won’t bore you with now but which can be boiled down to the usual ‘quality not quantity’ argument. Also, we’re all very tired.
Nonetheless, the presenters wanted to make this last show a good one which is why they brought their A-game to the Dunsfold office on Wednesday morning. By which I mean James spent several minutes sniffing an iPad, Jeremy delivered an unsolicited lecture on the importance of the castle in chess, and Richard wondered what would happen if you had a Botox injection in your testicles. Business as usual then.
As for the show itself, there’s no need to read any more of my drivel because here are two old men off the television to tell you more about it.
We’re back as usual this Sunday on BBC2 and BBC HD at 8pm. See you after the show when the presenters will be giving you their considered and entirely serious verdict on series 17.
