Top Gear, Series 10Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
You'd have thought by now that Top Gear has reached double figures things would calm down a bit and the presenters would start to act their age... Well you'd be wrong. Series 10 is as ambitious as ever, featuring some challenges that only the very brave — or the very stupid — would dare to undertake. For example, who in their right mind would attempt to cross the treacherous English Channel in a fleet of amphibious cars that are less seaworthy than the average church? You guessed it — Top Gear's three intrepid presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Of course Top Gear is much more than just three grown men who should know better larking about. There's some serious car journalism in there too with exhaustive road tests of the latest models; man versus machine experiments and weekly power tests featuring the world's most exotic super cars.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 1||Most of this one is given up to a directionless search for Europe’s greatest driving road – good job the boys have a Lambo, an Aston and a Gallardo then. Helen Mirren also stars… Jeremy has a punt in the outrageous mid-engined Golf concept, that isn’t quite finished yet. Nothing serious, just the small matter of actually going round corners. Breaking the news that the Cool Wall has been fatally damaged in a props room fire, along with all the TG furniture. So, a big hand please for the new chairs.||51:32||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|2||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 2||The boys have a second crack at crossing the channel in their amphibious cars, Jools Holland settles into a different kind of rhythm on our track and Jeremy drives Audi's everyday supercar…Jeremy gets all excited as Audi launches the first everyday supercar to challenge the 911 since the Honda NSX. Then Richard shows up in a 911. Cue much arguing. The chaps discover that, as well as making nice cars, Porsche also makes "smoking tools". Surely that smoking ban doesn't stretch to the TG studio, does it?||50:33||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|3||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 3||Jeremy hops in the smallest car ever and drives to the office. Literally. We also watch a Lexus crash itself, James tests a Rolls and Richard races a Eurofighter. Best episode ever? Possibly… Provoked by a letter from a Mr R Abramovitch of Chelsea demanding more tests of cars for ordinary people like him, James drives the £300,000 Rolls cabrio. The boys have a go at demonstrating in the studio how the self-parking system on the Lexus LS600 works. It would seem it's really, really complicated. Rock legend turns up not even knowing we want him to drive round the track, but puts in a spirited performance anyway in between hotel room anecdotes.||50:39||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|4||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 4||The boys find the fastest way across town – and it’s worth a look just to see Stig gets on the tube. Jeremy also power tests the firey Caparo and Simon Cowell is again our celeb…The road car that looks like an F1 car and has twice the power-to-weight ratio of the Veyron. Jeremy wears a fireproof suit in case it bursts into flames again. In the four years since his last TG appearance the X Factor guru seems to have acquired an even bigger ego, which he uses to try to beat JC. A real clash of the titans.||50:16||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|5||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 5||Famous for Richard’s mentalist motorhome racing, but this episode also had James racing a very tall bloke, JC closing a massive airport to go sideways and Lawrence Dallaglio…Despite its striking looks and space-age cabin design, Jeremy’s not sold on the heavier, slower, hard-riding Type R. Can a spot of track hooliganism change his mind? James gets in a tizzy trying to get across the Humber River without using the bridge. But surely he can beat Graham – our Very Tall Man – who’s trying to wade across? English rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio talks about being punched in the face, softie footballers and singing with Tina Turner, before trying to fit into our Chevrolet Lacetti for a hot lap.||49:16||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|6||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 6||Remember the one where Richard nearly ran himself over with that old Triumph? And the boys filling those rusty old snotboxes with water? Aston DBS and Jennifer Saunders also star…||50:42||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|7||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 7||Richard tries a Formula One car and Lewis Hamilton has a go on our track. One does very well, the other doesn’t. Plus, Jeremy is chauffeured by robot and James Blunt is in the studio…||50:42||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|8||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 8||Jeremy and the boys decide they need to burn the biofuel that grew last series, so enter a 24hr race. Fortunately, Stig is around to help. James also races a Fiat 500 against some BMXs…||51:11||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|9||Closed CaptioningVideoSeries 10, Episode 9||A car we haven't even featured wins our coveted award and David Tennant Doctors our reasonably priced car. Well, ruins the gearbox at least. The boys also test supersaloons in Spain…||50:12||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|10||Closed CaptioningVideoThe Botswana Special||Richard meets Oliver, his beloved Opel that followed him all the way back from Africa. And got restored. The other cars the boys chose for this epic Botswana challenge were less lucky…||51:38||£1.89||View in iTunes|

A great series, unfortunately you only get to see half of it
Top Gear is one of my most favourite TV programmes of all time, and so I was ecstatic when these were uploaded onto iTunes. However, to my disappointment it has been the latest show to suffer from the cuts that Apple seem to enforce on everything that isn't absolutely brand new. Unlike the new series 12, which is the whole show (the time is about 1 hour for each episode) these have obviously been subjected to licensing cuts, as pretty much all of the episodes barely hit 50 minutes. Also, I have to complain about the picture quality. There's nothing really wrong with it, but it's obvious the BBC don't want it to be better than iPlayer quality, and so you're stuck with a measly 640x360 resolution. Put the proper show on, then I'll consider buying. Until then, stick to re-runs on BBC.
Why is there 10 mins chopped of each?
Its a fantastic tv show but it looks like they have been pulled of the Tv Channel DAVE. They lock about 10-15 mins off each Top Gear. I want to buy this but not 7/10 of it. I don't understand. Who has decided to cut some off? Why? For the price that is unfair. Top Gear is fantastic though and i strongly reccomend that you buy Season 12. They are FULL LENGTH too!
typical apple rip off
this programme was shown for free on BBC2 several times, it was also available on BBC iplayer for free. So how can anyone justify paying nearly 2 quid for it? i don't blame apple for this, they can't help themselves when it comes to ripping off consumers. But the BBC, you should know better than to have let Apple get their hands on it!!
