    Bad news though. The next series will indeed be HD. But the next series won't be on till 2010.

    They said it's because they ran out of cars. But I suspect it's more to do with that they have run out of money. If you notice in this series just passed they really didn't do anything totally spectacular. The last big thing that they did was Vietnam.

    though I will concede that the race to Edinburgh was spectacular. But compared to some of the races they have done it does feel like the cheapest one they've staged as it was at home.

    But looks like we will have to wait till next year to see the boys mucking about in cars ;)

    It must be cost more to film and edit in HD I would imagine, saying that I’m sure the BBC has all the equipment needed anyway!

    In this series there supposed to be doing something like the Italian Job driving through sewers in Northern Ireland, don’t know how true it is... it was reported they were filming it in July. Link

    It will be worth the wait i’m sure ;)

    That does sound cool. But notice they are doing it in Ireland not Italy. But never mind it sounds good. But I was looking forward to my dose of top gear before Xmas lol. roll on 2010.
