As did I, it was on the Top Gear Facebook page, what I found amazing though was the general lack of discussion in this thread regarding it - I thought it was an practical joke (I even checked the date) regarding them being in the Cee'd.

Re: Top Gear New Series

I just saw that on their facebook link too, can't say Im honnestly overly interested. Do think it's funny considering they had an article on Cruise in their resonably priced car in thei last annual, quite funny and worth a read if you can find it. They acknowlage it was a joke at the end of the story.

Yeah, that was great- and no sign of mad Scientologist Cruise, just fun Cruise.

Surprised to hear Princess Fiona be the one who swore, mind you - but I think I'd have taken "Fuck me" as an instruction...

Re: Top Gear New Series

I thought it felt a bit lacking without a "big" film starring all three of the guys, but I enjoyed the smaller films, and even though they were only there to plug their new movie, I thought Cruise/Diaz were fun to watch as well. Also, that new Veyron is an absolute beast! 8/10

What ? Why ?

I Sky+'ed it so I won't miss it but shows on iPlayer last for seven days. In fact, after the mid-week repeat those seven days are normally reset.

This series is on series catch up, so it should be available until a week after the last episode. Why would they remove this episode early?

Top Gear - Series 15
Episode 5

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz attempt to set lap times around the Top Gear test track as the Stars in a Reasonably Priced Car. Plus, Richard Hammond is in Sweden for a race against some hardcore snowmobilers, James May attempts to break his personal speed record in a brand new, even more powerful version of the amazing Bugatti Veyron and, in the year that legendary F1 star Ayrton Senna would have turned 50, Jeremy Clarkson finds out why he's still considered the best driver of his generation.

Broadcast on: BBC Two, 8:00pm Sunday 25th July 2010
Duration: 60 minutes

That's why I said rumour. Apparently there was some chat along those lines on Radio 2 this morning - something about the FIA and footage rights. Seems unlikely.

Yeah, I was impressed with both of them, it didn't feel as jarringly out of place as it could have.

Great episode, though, for sure. Every film was enjoyable, and that new version of the Veyron is absolute insanity.

I am gravely concerned for the future of human society if, albeit for only an hour or so, James May was the fastest man alive.

Clarkson to Cruise: "You do your own stunts ... you are proud of the fact that you do a lot of jumping up and down and falling off things."
