Previously on my Top Gear obsessed blog – I wrote suggestions for Top Gear 100 – that was last series and it came and then went away.
He said: “Count up how many shows we’ve done since we came back on air with Top Gear because that has got to be a landmark show and we don’t want to miss the bugger.”
Andy then went on to explain that: “I’ve just worked out that the actual 100th show was the really shit one with the Renault Avantine so I’m sorry.”
So there we have it – no leaping over caravans, burning caravans – in fact no caravans at all – just a poor to middling, if not utter turd car. Oh well.
However, something I can embed for you is Top Gear 13×01 as my tip of the week.

And to finish off a few words on this weeks Top Gear ratings – a pretty impressive one for Top Gear and BBC Two – but not the highest of all time.
The opening episode of Top Gear 13 saw an audience of 7.1 million and a share of 30.4% reaching a peak audience of 7.8 million by 8:45.
It was hte most popular show on BBC Two by a long way – with James May on the Moon taking the second spot with 3.2 million and a 13.8% share.
In fact Top Gear also gets the award for most watched show of the day by some margin – with BBC News at 10 getting 5.2 million in second and Stephen Fry’s Kingdom on ITV 1 getting 4.6 million in third.
