It looks like we’ll have quite a long wait until the return of Top Gear. In a recent interview with a South African radio show, Clarkson mentioned that Top Gear won’t be returning this year, presumably due to the Olympics. You can listen here — fast-forward to 8:14 for the relevant part:
UPDATE: Further confirmed by Jeremy on Twitter, specifically January.
There’s a rumour in internet land that there will be no more Top Gears this year. I’m afraid that apart from an Xmas special, it’s true.
Back when Top Gear moved to a new studio and were refreshing the show a little, they considered changing the theme song. Thankfully Clarkson vetoed it but can you imagine Top Gear with this theme song opening? I certainly can’t — Jessica is too much of a classic.
Clarkson’s latest DVD, titled “Powered UP, will be out on November 7th. You can pre-order it off Amazon.co.uk now if you’re on that side of the pond. No word when (or if) it will be available over here in America.
While the first three episodes have been car-focused, Top Gear will be switching gears for the next two episodes and moving to more entertainment-style episodes.
Jeremy and executive producer Andy Wilman have taken to the Internet and posted a video on TopGear.com explaining the reason for the shift as well as mentioning a certain Top Gear fan website.
I for one don’t understand the dislike that some have for the more entertainment based episodes though. Okay, so I’m not a huge fan of pre-scripted events but I do like to see the hosts just goofing around and having a good time. I mean if you hosted Top Gear, isn’t that what you would end up doing half of the time anyway?
Many thanks to everyone who's ripped the episodes on this site as well as Quiky and PacketCollision for being awesome sysops.
