Did you know that TG is quite popular in Iran?

it's popular in many countries. I wonder how many jokes have to be cut out though (I'd imagine a few).

BBC3 don't seem to like showing anything "popular" so probably not. Must be there remit these days.

Shame really, as I've enjoyed the earlier series.
I donít think thereís any reason to think that BBC Three have dropped Top Gear USA, they stopped after season 2 as at that moment in time there were no more new episodes. Season 3 has now aired in the US so it should be available to them now.
They do seem to have an unwritten rule that Top Gear USA canít be aired at the same time as a Ďnewí series of Top Gear UK, which is sort of understandable.

Hopefully season 3 makes its way to BBC Three soon, I really enjoyed season 2 and it makes a good substitute while the UK version if off the air. In fact Iím surprised Dave havenít aired Top Gear USA, even if it was to only give their Top Gear UK tapes a rest!

In past series they would repeat the new episode on BBC Three during the week - they didn't seem to do that this year

I usually like the idea of keeping threads for shows active while a series isn't being aired.

What were your funniest moments of this latest series?

It wasn't in this series, but James May saying "Hello." to the two girls at a petrol station was pure comedy. Had our family in tears, even on the repeat in the "best of".

I remember that. During the Africa Special when they were waving to the little kids, he said it in what sounded like the exact same tone.

Funnily enough I remember reading that students at Coventry University designed the P45. That's why the tank was where it was.

Oh god, it's still funny even though I've seen it so many times by now. :ī)
Those videos just lightened up my day quite a bit.

The train segment (the 'penis' x7 into the tannoy especially) was also funny.

Once again, not 2016.

When does the new series start on BBC Two?

I noticed looking at the EPG when they showed the Africa Special on Dave on Bank Holiday Monday, that they put both shows together.

If 2011 is anything to go by, the new series will probably start on 23rd or 30th June.

The show is recorded during the week and transmitted on Sunday a few days later (I believe).

Correct, as I recall it is normally recorded on the Thursday for transmission on the Sunday.

So, my reckoning is that it should be back in a few weeks.

The guys were spotted filming in Penistone a few days ago. Expect many Penis jokes in the item
http://www.wearebarnsley.com/news/ar...for-new-series

Some find willy jokes infantile. Others find them very funny.

Penistonians get fed up with them very quickly. I used to work there at David Browns.

Was tottering around youtube last night and somehow got on to TG outtakes. Mostly in the news section.
Some of it was funny, especially the bit where Clarkson lost his voice and May had a space hopper on his eye


That thing about pushing the good looking girls to the front - he did some round ups for BBC World and had two beauties next to him and didn't get through one sign off without referencing their tits.
