And in good news for fans, the series has recorded its first show in front of an audience — but with a twist.
Paddy, Freddie and Chris welcomed audience members in their cars to pull up and watch the show. A drive-in show is certainly fitting for Top Gear, after all.
Brand new TopGear , coming soon with a socially distanced twist. Just outside, hoping that for once the British weather commits to the forecast.
You can check out all the drama and action above, though intriguingly no release date has yet been given. The first episode attracted an average consolidated audience of 3.
The long-running entertainment show was also hugely popular amongst young audiences, occupying a spot in the top four shows on British television for year olds during each week of its run.
His statement included referring to "this incarnation of Top Gear " being close to its end, and that the production team would be working towards keeping its "dignity still intact", while experimenting with new ideas for the programme.
Towards the end of , the BBC became concerned over Clarkson's behaviour on the programme, including its production. Their concerns were raised by two incidents that year.
The first involved an un-aired take from the 19th series emerging on national news media, featuring the presenter attempting to choose between two cars using the traditional rhyme " Eeny, meeny, miny, moe " but failing to censor the original version's use of the N-word.
The programme then suffered another incident, when production of its next special in Argentina was dogged by major issues that placed the team at serious risk of harm, as one of the car license plates had read "H FKL" in an alleged reference to the Falklands War of The controversial incident it created was covered by international news media, but despite the issues faced, the special was later aired as part of the BBC's Christmas schedule for ,  though with amendments to its ending and the inclusion of an introduction for it.
On 10 March , the 22nd series of the programme was abruptly put into hiatus by the BBC. The broadcaster's actions were the result of them suspending Clarkson in order to investigate allegations made against him, over verbal and physical abuse he had committed against one of the show's producers, Oisin Tymon.
Following the departure of Clarkson, and the subsequent departure of May, Hammond and Wilman, the BBC began searching for their replacements.
On 16 June , Chris Evans was confirmed as one of the new hosts,  with it later suggested he would be hosting the show alone as part of a new format,  despite a previous announcement that the broadcaster was holding open audition for his co-presenters;  this claim was later dismissed as untrue.
Although former Formula 1 driver David Coulthard had been widely reported to be joining the programme as a host, this was dismissed as speculation when he was revealed, on 11 January , to be the new host of Channel 4 's coverage for the F1 season.
Filming for the twenty-third series soon began in early While the show still retained the use of the show's presentation style and its test driver The Stig, the format received a number of changes — a small number of segments were dropped, the studio received a revamp to its layout, the celebrity segment was redesigned to feature a rallycross-styled challenge, while Evans and LeBlanc would front the show with the other co-presenters appearing "when required".
Designed to be aired after each episode of the new series was aired, its format focused on providing exclusive new content online — hosted by both Reid and Harris, the spin-off would consist of new footage, interviews, specially recorded films and behind-the-scenes access to the main programme.
A combination of delays with production and conflicts with scheduling, led to the premiere date of the 23rd series being pushed back to 29 May In addition, the new series aired with only six of the ten episodes that it promised to show.
The new look of the show received mixed feedback from critics and viewers alike — although praise was given for the inclusion of LeBlanc, Harris and Reid, the new format was panned for its sluggish pace, the lack of humour in the studio segments, and the length of time spent on the revamped celebrity segment, "Star in a Rally-Cross Car".
The most negative feedback received for the 23rd series was towards Evans' involvement — his presentation style was largely criticised, along with the lack of chemistry he had with LeBlanc.
In addition to feedback, several newspaper articles highlighted the fact that the new series struggled to make reasonable viewing figures, with this partly blamed on its broadcast schedule putting it up against live broadcasts of the UEFA Euro championships.
On 4 July, following the series finale, Evans announced his resignation from Top Gear , based on feedback.
To make amends for its dismal performance, Top Gear underwent a more thorough revamp, which included redoing the studio, and redesigning the show's opening titles.
The show's format was refocused on elements developed in early series, a deeper work on chemistry between the presenters, while also revising the celebrity segment — as the arrangement for the 23rd series had proven to be a failure,  the segment returned to its original format.
On 31 May LeBlanc announced he would be leaving the show after the twenty-sixth series. The new presenting line-up received a positive reception compared to the mixed reviews of the previous few series.
During the broadcast of the twenty-eighth series in early , it was announced that, from the twenty-ninth series , the show would move channels to BBC One following the positive reception of the new presenting lineup.
Car segment to maintain social distancing. Each episode of Top Gear focus a series of segments, switching between those filmed within the programme's main studio before a studio audience, and pre-recorded films conducted before the broadcast of an episode — these films primarily cover major segments of the episodes, with studio segments often used as links or breaks between them.
The most common forms of segments used in the show's history are "Car Reviews", "Power Laps", "Star in a Car", "Cool Wall", "Challenges" and "Races".
A major segment of the programme, happening at least once in most episodes, it focuses on the presenters conducting a road-test of a car, looking at such factors as ride quality, speed, handling, practicality, and reliability.
These reviews are conducted either on and around Top Gear ' s test track , or on the roads of Britain and abroad, and often focus on one car, primarily from well known car manufacturers.
Although the programme operated in a standard manner in the early series to the original format of car reviews in the show, it soon began to adopt an unusual approach of reviewing cars, by conducting an unusual test s to either put a vehicle through its paces in an arranged scenario, or to demonstrate and showcase an exceptional quality that it exhibited.
An example of this comes from the "Toyota Hilux Destruction" film, divided between two episodes of the third series — to prove the strength of a Toyota Hilux pick-up truck, presenters Clarkson and May set about subjecting it to various, mainly destructive tests to see if it could survive against them and still run, allowing the use of tools for repair but prohibiting the replacement of any components with the exception of the windscreen.
Other notable uses of this unusual approach have included:. Another unusual approach with car reviews was to conduct them in the form of a challenge.
Examples of such "review" challenges have included:. This segment focuses on a featured car undergoing a timed lap of the programme's test track, with the car driven by The Stig.
Often used after the main review of an episode, it mainly involved the car or cars from the review, though it sometimes featured vehicles that either had been reviewed in a previous episode but couldn't be put on the track due to problems or unfavourable conditions on the track, or were special models such as racing versions of the car.
On occasions when multiple cars did a timed lap, the episode either shows the film of each car one after the other, or alongside each other. After the film is shown, the presenter reveals the time to the studio audience and the viewer — abbreviations next to lap times, such as "W" for "wet", highlight if they were conducted under certain track conditions.
In order to qualify for a place on the Power Lap Board, cars that undergo a Power Lap must fulfil certain requirements: . As such, vehicles that do not qualify, have their times mentioned, but do not get included on the Lapboard.
Examples of this include the Renault F1 car Another major segment in the programme, featured in the majority of episodes broadcast, the format for this involves a celebrity being invited to take part in a timed lap around Top Gear ' s test track in a car provided for the segment.
They then join the presenters in the studio for an interview, mainly about their car history, their performance in the car and a look back to the highlights from their practice laps.
After viewing footage of their timed lap, their time is stated and recorded onto a leaderboard, much in a similar fashion to lap times for Power Laps, including the use of abbreviations to denote track conditions the celebrity faced.
Although only one celebrity is involved in this segment, in a number of episodes, including the majority of the eleventh and twenty-third series, it sometimes featured two celebrities taking part, with footage of each timed lap shown one after the other.
From the first series to the twenty-second series, when the show was presented by Clarkson, Hammond and May, the segment was entitled as "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" — its name was derived from the fact that the celebrities drove around the test track in an affordable car available on the market.
The segment was often shown during the middle of an episode, and had the celebrities interviewed by Clarkson. The affordable car used in the segment was changed several times, each being replaced after a number of series — because the new car was often different, in terms of engine specifications, power, speed, handling, and other factors, a new leaderboard would be created a direct result.
In addition, the introduction of a new car would be reserved for the opening episode, with the celebrity segment pre-recorded before the series began — it featured no interview, and involved a group of celebrities taking part to set a lap time in the new car.
Up until the eighth series, the rules of the segment were that celebrities were given a set number of laps to do, with the fastest amongst these being recorded, but from the ninth series onwards, the rules were changed so that they were now given a few practice laps to get to grips with both the car and the track, before conducting a timed lap.
In some episodes, the invited celebrity was a F1 driver, with the segment referred to as "F1 Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" — while it stuck to the standard format, the only difference was that the F1 drivers were restricted to the use of the first car used in the segment, which was retained to maintain fairness with those invited.
During Evans' short-lived tenure as the show's host, the twenty-third series saw the segment renamed "Star in a Rally-Cross Car".
The first change was that the interview, conducted with Evans, was much longer, with the celebrities involved discussing what was their favourite car in a certain field and the studio audience voting on which one they preferred.
The second change, which was the primary reason for the change in name, was that celebrities drove around a specially modified, rally-cross version of the Top Gear test track — while it used the majority of the circuit, it featured two off-road sections and a small jump — in a rally-spec Mini Cooper.
After the series ended, the segment received negative feedback and criticism from viewers and critics, and was dropped from the programme as a result.
From the twenty-fourth series onwards, the segment's format was revised, and renamed as "Star in a Reasonably Fast Car". Apart from the car being much faster the segment was split into two parts — the celebrity joined much earlier in the episode, discussed their car history with LeBlanc, Harris and Reid, gave some feedback on a film that had been shown prior to footage of their timed lap, and viewed footage of a practice lap in which Harris tutored them on how to get around the circuit in the new car, before the footage of their timed lap.
This was altered slightly in Series 25, with it returning to only one part with the training run still shown. As part of Top Gear ' s format, every episode has contained at least a number of segments involving challenges.
In the first few series, these were focused on novelty challenges and stunts that were typically based on absurd premises, such as a bus jumping over motorcycles as opposed to the more typical scenario of a motorcycle jumping over buses or a nun driving a monster truck.
However, these later changed into situations in which the presenters were either competing against each other with a car they chose in a series of tests, or working together to accomplish a goal, with the tagline "How hard can it be?
Challenges that appear in episodes, mainly fall under the following categories:. Another part of the show's format was the inclusion of a race in every series by the presenters.
Such races which were sometimes referred to as "epic" by Clarkson   were mainly conducted over long distances, though each fell under a certain category:.
In "The Cool Wall", the segment focused on an argument between two of the presenters over which cars are cool and which are not, placing photographs of these on various sections of a large board divided into a series of categories: "Seriously Uncool", "Uncool", "Cool", and "Sub Zero".
This segment was purely designed for comedy, as it was mainly handled by both Clarkson and Hammond since its introduction in the sixth episode of the first series,  and both presenter often argued and attempted to put a car they liked into a category that the other refused to let it be a part of, with Clarkson basing some of his arguments on how the cars would impress actress Kristin Scott Thomas ,  and later, BBC newsreader Fiona Bruce.
Cars were placed into a specific category depending on certain attributes, which, according to Andy Wilman, were not necessarily related to the quality of the car itself.
A notable rule of this segment was that the car becomes "Seriously Uncool" if a presenter buys one. In , Top Gear featured its first, feature-length, special edition episode, in which the presenters conducted a various challenges related to sporting events used in the Winter Olympics, in which cars took the place of athletes in each event.
Following this special, the production team worked on creating additional, feature-length specials, in which the common theme was that the presenters conducted a road trip, mainly using a series of second-hand vehicles that they put through a series of challenges along their journey.
The format often saw the presenters conduct a small filmed segment to provide an insight of what they were doing; the exception to this format was Top Gear ' s Polar Special.
A number of specials were designed to be aired as a Top Gear "Christmas Special", with the last three split into two parts. These special are listed below:.
At the end of each autumn series, hosts Clarkson, Hammond and May presented an award ceremony, in which they picked out cars on various aspects.
While some were serious, others were meant as jokes against cars that the presenters hated. One award given, was to one of the presenters, referred to as "Cock of Year", in which they had conducted a mistake while filming the show for that year, while another was given to the celebrity who drove well, and not necessarily the fastest.
The most important award given out in this special segment was "car of the year," in which the only criterion was that all three presenters must come to a unanimous choice on the winning car.
Past winners were:. On the final episode of the 14th series, a special award called "Car of the Decade" was given to mark the end of s, and was awarded to the Bugatti Veyron , primarily as it was the only car worthy of the award.
The popularity of the programme eventually led to Top Gear being broadcast internationally in different territories by the end of ; however the show's publicist has stated that the oft-repeated claim of million viewers per week is "unreliable".
Some of the countries where the programme is broadcast are listed below along with the channels it is transmitted on:.
Top Gear has also been nominated in three consecutive years — for the British Academy Television Awards in the Best Feature category.
Clarkson was also nominated in the best "Entertainment Performance" category in Accepting the award in October , Richard Hammond made the comment that they really deserved it this year, because he didn't have to crash to get some sympathy votes.
Top Gear presenters have also announced on the programme that they have won some slightly lower profile awards. All three presenters have won the award for Heat magazine's "weirdest celebrity crush" revealed during the news.
In series 11, the Stig won an award from the Scouts for Services to Instruction. After revealing that, the Stig was shown "attacking" the Scouts, and the presenters coming to the conclusion that he is either terrified of Scouts or was a Girl Guide.
Industry insiders and television pundits voted; also a thousand members of the public took part in a YouGov poll. Top Gear has often been criticised for content inside programmes by some members of the public and by Ofcom.
Most of the criticisms stem from comments from the presenting team; however, other aspects of the programme have been underlined as unsuitable.
Incidents and content ranging from but not limited to remarks considered by some viewers to be offensive,  promoting irresponsible driving,  ridiculing environmental issues,  Germans,   Mexicans,  and Poles,  and alleged homophobia  have generated complaints.
British comedian and guest of the programme Steve Coogan has criticised the programme, accusing it of lazy, adolescent humour and "casual racism".
The programme has also been accused of misrepresenting vehicle manufacturer Tesla in an episode first aired in The firm took Top Gear to court for libel and malicious falsehood after it suggested one of its Roadster vehicles had run out of power after only 55 miles.
Clarkson himself has been critical of the BBC over their handling of the programme. He has also commented on his dislike of BBC bosses for choosing the length of the series and for often replacing the programme with snooker which Clarkson labelled as "drunk men playing billiards " , despite Top Gear having considerably higher viewing figures.
It's definitely higher on that side". This led to complaints that " slope " is a derogatory term for an Asian person. Top Gear also received extensive criticism in late October during filming of an episode for Series 22 in Argentina.
The presenters and the associated film crew were chased out of the country by angry protesters allegedly throwing rocks at the team. The BBC maintained that the index number was pure coincidence.
The show also received widespread criticism after the sacking of Jeremy Clarkson, and subsequent departure of James May and Richard Hammond. The criticism continued for the first episode of the following series, hosted by Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc.
The popularity of the original UK series eventually led to the creation of a number of international versions, each with local production teams and presenters, all made under licence from BBC Studios :.
This announcement marks the first time a deal has been struck for a version of Top Gear to be produced exclusively for a foreign market.Dieses neue Format brachte einige grundlegende Änderungen.
