The Grand Tour - Top Gear Replacement Show Announced

Amazon’s new motoring show starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be called The Grand Tour.

In a statement, the former Top Gear trio thanked fans for taking the time to send in their suggestions for the name, which they said were “much appreciated”.

“Thing is,” said Clarkson, “we’ll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent. It’s a sort of ‘grand tour’, if you like. So we’ve decided to call it The Grand Tour.”

May said he was underwhelmed by the name. “I wanted to call it ‘Nigel’, or ‘Roger’,” he said. “We needed a name, and they’re names.”

Hammond was more positive. “I already love camping,” he said. “But this is something else. We are like our pioneering and prospecting forebears, sallying forth into a new frontier of broadcasting, and making our home where…”

As a special offer you can subscribe now and get £20 off the price (Think offer ends tonight).

The move comes just days after Amazon revealed it is testing out a monthly Prime subscription in the UK - which will come in at £7.99 a month.

The membership programme includes access to an extensive database of movies, TV shows, e-books and unlimited one-day delivery.

Yes, can't wait to watch it!

It's a Friday night too, so a little different to the usual Sunday night viewing.

Just discovered - 30 day free trial here: http://amzn.to/2dpPA8g and then only £5.99 a month.

Should mean it will only cost £6 to watch the full series!

Episode 1 was great, car sections were great, audience banter was mostly ok. However, the RAF/USAF and dead celebrities bits were utterly cringeworthy - The American race driver as an alternative Stig was extremely unfunny; overall I was pleased though.

Episode 2: Oh dear - It was like an episode full of those awkward moments from episode 1. And the "feature" had nothing to do with cars and was like watching a cameo from a badly written film. It was actually boring! I hope the next episode is better...

Two part Christmas special on this week end. Looks good, hopefully on par with their other Christmas specials.
