Well he’s gone anyway, I generally liked the guy and found him pretty entertaining but as the saying goes, there are no indispensable men.
As much as I like Top Gear (apart from the news its basically all I watch on TV) I did feel that the format was becoming somewhat tired and could do with a shake-up, its just a pity it ended the way it did and not on a high (three-way McLaren P1, Ferrari La Ferrari and Porsche 918 duel anyone?).
So the BBC has the opportunity to have a fresh go at it with new presenters, who would you suggest and why, feel free to suggest a Clarkson replacement only or three entirely new presenters.
The BBC had an article on it today:
Not following the media closely I don’t know much about some of them but Jodie Kidd or Vicki-Butler Henderson could be good choices, a female presenter could be interesting, just as long as the powers that be didn’t feel the need to focus on that aspect at every opportunity (they have a presenter who is female, not A Female Presenter). And I always liked VBH when she appeared on the series before.
It could work so long as they don’t try to just recreate the Clarkson/Hammond/May era and style with new faces, they need to revamp the show from top to bottom while keeping the general feeling.
