Description

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.

    Series 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.

    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?

    Series 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.

    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.

    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.
