    About a week ago, I heard news that Charlie Cox was being replaced by James Morrison has the host of Top Gear Australia. The official line from SBS is that charlie didn't have the tie to to the series in 2009 because of all of his commitments in the UK. Speculation has been rife though that the other reason he was let go is because the audience didn't like him. What are people thoughts on this news?

    WOW! I have not heard anything. I like Charlie. I know he is really busy in the UK an he is well known over there, so that might be true about too many commiittments. But I thought he was an okay host. Plus I like his anecdotes and I appreciate his humour as well. I will now have to go and have a search on the net to find out more. James Morrison is okay though. He likes cars and has heaps of them so maybe he will be okay - only time will tell I suppose. If you have any more info twopratt keeps us informed - THIS IS HUGE!!!

    Hi guys, just saw this thread!

    I'm sure you've seen this story on the second season of TGA: http://www.tv.com/story/14695.html and we just posted another one on James Morrison's addition to the show: http://www.tv.com/story/15316.html

    Do you think he's a good replacement for Charlie Cox? Is he better?
