the boys are back!

Jeremy Clark­son and co take on more glo­be­trot­ting ad­ven­tures as The Grand Tour re­turns

What's on TV - - TVweek -

Jeremy Clark­son, Richard Hammond and James May are back on the road for more full-throt­tle races in the third sea­son of The Grand Tour.

Among this year’s des­ti­na­tions are Ne­vada, Mon­go­lia and Colom­bia. ‘Mon­go­lia was my favourite place,’ says Jeremy. ‘We drove for six days with only a com­pass and we didn’t see a sin­gle per­son, vil­lage or tele­graph pole – no ev­i­dence at all that man had ex­isted. It was stun­ning. The only prob­lem was that the pro­duc­ers didn’t pack a sin­gle drop of al­co­hol…’

There’s one big dif­fer­ence to the show this year: there are no stu­dio guests. ‘Ama­zon can see what peo­ple are watch­ing minute by minute and they said view­ers were skip­ping those bits,’ ex­plains Jeremy. ‘So the films are more lav­ish now as we have more time.’

The se­ries kicks off with a trip to Detroit, where the lads turn an aban­doned car fac­tory into a race track. This year, the trio also man­aged to avoid any scary dashes to A&E.

‘We’ve done a whole se­ries with­out in­jury,’ says Jeremy. ‘Al­though I nearly cut my fin­ger off at one point!’
