The other day on Twitter I mentioned that I had some stories from my 13 years as script editor on Top Gear, but that they weren’t very interesting. Since a couple of people asked, I’ve written this so you can see what I mean. »
The Top Gear crew are back with Clarkson, Hammond & May Live, a new rolling circus that’s set to start touring this year. And they’ve already begun filming a few new segments to go along with their Back On The Road tour.
Top Gear has been off the air for a few months now. It’s sad. But there is a chance that Clarkson, Hammond, and May could have a show on Netflix. The title? House of Cars. Get it? »
Top Gear, the greatest motoring show the world has ever seen, is dead. It was taken from us with one punch to the face, and we were all shocked. But according to James May, its time was numbered anyways, because the latest contract the hosts were going to sign was also supposed to be the last. »
When Jeremy Clarkson was told he was finished at Top Gear, everyone just sort of assumed that was that. The show was over, at least in its then-current incarnation, and we’d all have to find something new to watch on Sundays (Nurse Jackie, obvi). But co-host James May just said it might not be over for the trio. »

No? Great. Here’s Clarkson auctioning off a pile of literal crap. And also, talking about Top Gear. »
You, the spittle-flecked, confused masses, were under the impression that the BBC had fired Jeremy Clarkson for punching a Top Gear producer in the face. But you, the blithering, enraged peanut gallery, were wrong. Because he was only fired from Top Gear, not the whole BBC, and in a few weeks, he’ll be back. »
I love profanity. I don’t care who knows it. There’s something so gloriously freeing and exhilarating about releasing a nice, long, flowing, vulgar stream of foul language. When it comes to some world-class Freestyle Flying Off The Handle Swearing, I have to say Richard Hammond really nails it. »
In the wake of the Top Gear fracas-producer-attack-Clarkson-gate that saw Jeremy Clarkson fired from the BBC, reports came in that the police we’re also looking into the incident. It has now been announced that Clarkson will face no charges for the incident. »
