Season 21 — Episode 1

Episode 1

In the first of a brand new series, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May attempt to prove that the hot hatchbacks of their youth were better than their modern equivalents by buying a ‘classic’ example of the breed each and then undertaking a series of challenges.

After tackling a tricky hill climb course and an unusual visit to the supermarket, the three arrive at an old army training ground in Wales where their aging cars must evade the heavily armed and heavily moustachioed Top Gear Police Department. Also in this episode, Hugh Bonneville, star of Downton Abbey and forthcoming BBC sitcom W1A, is the star in the Reasonably Priced Car.
