Why do they keep rattling on about "Mr Wilman"? As if the average viewer has any idea who the prick is.

I guess he thinks he is now a celeb in his own right, probably in his contract

I've always enjoyed the sections where they each choose old cars and just mess about in them as long as it doesn't get too silly, so the Jag section was entertaining.

Agree with the boring Celeb bits, if they have to have them I'd rather see head to head racing, but I'm guessing for insurance reasons that would never happen.

I might be in the minority but I'm really not finding the hilarity in two random celebs with a really random connection, I preferred it when they got blown up, at least it was only for one minute

This was a great episode, especially for all the little gags throughout.

Another thumbs up for the Jag stuff. I've no doubt a lot of the snow driving was down to clever editing, but it was very well put together.


As for the celeb thing, it was very blah indeed this week. Talking to Luke Evans about a film he made 5 years ago? Really?

The driving on snow was clever editing and stunt drivers. The clarkson stunt looks nothing like him. You can see in one shot and then another the windscreen is sort of blurred.

It was a bit dull. Seeing as there was no ads/reviews why they break up the film?

Celebrity bit was 13 minutes. Conversation Street was also pretty bad this week.

The jag stuff was ok. Not great but passed the time. Switching cars (twice for Hammond) and not saying anything was clever.

Twice for Hammond. They swapped the xj6 for another xj6. I’m pretty certain he’s driving two different xj6’s and they don’t mention it.

Enjoyed that episode a lot, and the rally section really was supurb. Skipped the celebrity bit again.

I got the feeling that if they were still employed by the Beeb, Clarkson would have done a full length documentary on the rally story. What we got was great though.

Celebrity bit was the worst one yet.

I think the series hit a new low this (last?) week, although the bit where Clarkson was looking for his car in the fog did make me chuckle out loud

Agreed. I forwarded through conversation Street and celebrity bit.

The (new) old v new cars bit was a whole load of nothing. Interesting at the start win all the details of building process for the cars. Then just 20 odd minutes of clarkson and Hammond trying to change gear.

I still watch the new episodes but I normally wait till I have nothing else to watch and I ff through most of it.

The Grand Tour (2016)

Well you can’t just say that. How? Where?

Are you a very clapped-out XJS?

Yes got to tell us how. Thought the water speed record bit was quite good, well the actual serious attempt, not the daft Clarkson effort with the jet engine.

OK I will bite...

So you are one of the following:

An American Highway Patrol Officer
An American in a pickup truck
Kiefer Sutherland
The other celebrity
A man in the audience (the other celebrity's Dad?)
A hotel receptionist
A waiter
A hotel customer who gave Clarkson his coat etc

My guess is the hotel customer.

Do you think that a man would have a username of "agnetha"?
