Video: Hammond meets Phineas and Ferb!

TopGear.commers with children under the age of ten will already understand this headline (and probably have the theme tune aurally tattooed on their lower cortex).

Andy Wilman on why Clarkson, Hammond and May should be Director General

I know this seems a bit late to wade into the whole BBC Director General hoo-ha that kicked off a while back, but I’ve been busy on Top Gear. Now however, with the series over, I’d like to share my thoughts on the matter. A couple of months ago I was driving to work, the […]

The chaps introduce the last episode of the series

Alas, it is the end of Series 18, and what a run we’ve had: who could forget our supercar shootout in Italy, a trip to China and Kung Fu Stig, the Ferrari FF vs Bentley on ice, the lightly insane C63 Black series and Saab tribute, and of course, the aeroplane-engined BMW Brutus and Bentley […]

So there you have it. Top Gear is finally back on the nation’s screens: three undeniably great cars, two new haircuts, one Oscar-winning film director and a minor conflagration. Hopeless gifts were exchanged, Stigs were mown down in hails of semi-automatic gunfire, fuses were blown – a nice gentle introduction to the festive season ahead…
