Top Gear future?

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Top Gear future?

I've just heard news that Top Gear might not be returning. Whether it's just Clarkson saying that TG wont be back until Autumn instead of the Summer, like the BBC said it would be, remains to be seen. However, alot of people seem to think it wont be back AT ALL. As far as I'm aware that's just rumour though, as the BBC say it definitely will be returning, and that JC probably meant that the series will not be back as promised, in the Summer, but instead will be back in the Auyumn, leaving us with a one off special in the Summer. Here's a link to a news report. :ohcrap:

Not sure if this is considered spam, but this site gives some insight:

They'll definitely be back; it's the most viewed automotive show in the world. On a lighter note, here's a video of the Stig...speaking:

I'll be sad to see another runway apart from Dunsfold, lol. I always liked it when they done their 'road trips' etc....I recognised alot of the places and roads. Dunsfold is around 20-miles from where I live. I dunno....I guesss we'll have to wait and see, I'll leave that site up, Chris. :thumbs:

As for the Stig speaking....if it was his voice, he sounds very young...

They'll be back in the autumn with the same cast:

So first he personally says that TG will not be back...he then says that we seem to thin k that it wont be returning, and that he's left....Well yes, we did think that, but only because it came from the horse's mouth, so to speak, lol.

Just read this (http://www.topgear.com/blogs/planettopgear/040-series-10-its-up-to-you/).. .Turns out Jeremy doesn't know whether the show should be about car reviews or stuff like season 9 (going to the States, growing ethanol, etc lol). I liked it better with more car-related stuff personally.

Interesting. I must say though, I wouldn't enjoy TG so much if they focused soley on cars. I love all the cocking around, especially when I recognise some of the areas they drive by etc (like parts of the M25 Motorway....or when they went on a train in one of the first series'). You could say that most of their cocking around is vehicle related in some way or another though, especially when they pit cars against other modes of transport such as trains and planes. I hope not much changes though!

their hate for caravans (and campers) is always fun to watch, but like you say, their cocking around is great, (like the RC Vauxhall Omega and Ford Scorpio!):laughing:

Yes, TG wouldnt be TG without the cocking around. I didnt like some of the last series (going round the Bible Belt with a car painted "we love gays" is just cheap TV) but the more car-oriented cocking round: yes please!

That part was hilarious, especially if you pretend it wasn't scripted (I'm not sure if it really was lol) :laughing:
