Actually, she's very much alive and rocking it in the jungle and planning a round-the-world solo airplane trip.
THE GRAND TOUR!
As did a couple of actors who I wasn't sure who they were. I didn't recognise them and Jeremy mumbled their names but I'm glad we didn't have quarter of an hour listening to them talking about their latest projects.
So what did the BBC think of the show?
They just told us what the critics thought of the show.
So what did the critics think of the show?
They really liked it. They described it as "filmic" which I don't reckon is a word. Perhaps I could ask Countdown's Susie Dent.
So what did I think of the show?
I thought the opening sequence went on a bit long - but I suppose that added tension and expectation and the show did last 70 minutes to make up for that.
I didn't see the point of the fight sequence - could have done without that.
Not sure about the new "Stig" - I think he may be a Trump supporter.
And I thought overall that the whole thing was...
Much as I like LeBlanc, Harris & Reid, the chemistry between Clarkson, Hammond & May is unparallelled (is that spelled correctly, Susie?) I think the BBC need to rethink Top Gear now, admit defeat, and turn it back into a car show.
With a bit of careful juggling of free trials and having a couple of weeks break in the middle of the 12 episodes, I could possibly see the lot for free - but worst-case scenario is it costs me £11.98 - a price I'm willing to pay. I've sorted the numbers so it's no conundrum. (more Countdown references in case you've no idea who Vorderman is)
