Jeremy, James and Richard continue their journey through Burma in the three lorries they bought, unseen, on the Internet. This week they travel through civil war-ravaged Shan State, which is usually closed to Western TV crews, to Thailand as they attempt to complete their ambitious challenge to build a bridge over the River Kwai.moreless
In a foreign field, there will forever be three Englishmen falling over and bickering. Anyway, Jeremy, James and Richard embark on a journey across Burma in three less than perfect lorries. Their mission: to build a bridge over the River Kwai.
Richard is in Abu Dhabi to drive the 886 bhp Porsche 918 Spyder around the Yas Marina F1 circuit. Stig also drives the Porsche and the McLaren P1 around the Top Gear track: if he can set a faster lap time for the Porsche, Jeremy has promised to change his name to Jennifer.
Speaking of Jennifer - 'he' drives the seventh generation Volkswagen Golf GTI and the BMW M135i. Meanwhile, in an unexpected move, Jeremy/Jennifer and James create a public information film to promote safer cycling, which they present to members of Westminster Council and former cyclist Chris Boardman, who won the gold medal for the Individual Pursuit at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.
Aaron Paul is the Star (apparently) in the Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
The Touring Superleggera Disco Volante. No, it's not an Italian dance troupe - it's a car. It's based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and Jeremy has packed his disco trousers and headed to Italy to drive it.
Richard is in Dubai to play in the sand with the six-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6 - one of only two in existence. Meanwhile, James also finds himself in 'foreign' territory - he's on the Top Gear track, driving three Caterhams: the Seven 160, the supercharged Seven 620R and the Aero Seven concept.
Jack Whitehall is the Star Made Famous by his Dad who is an Agent in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
Jeremy, James and Richard embark on a road trip in three small cars to Ukraine. Jeremy has chosen to make the journey in a Volkswagen Up!, Richard drives the Ford Fiesta and James - realising a long-held ambition - drives the Dacia Sandero. During their visit they travel to the Crimean Peninsula and the even more infamous Chernobyl.
Meanwhile, back at the Top Gear test track, Jeremy drives the Zenvo ST1 - a Danish supercar.

Richard drives the Alfa Romeo 4C in the pleasant surrounding of Lake Como in Italy. Things take an unpleasant turn when Jeremy arrives and challenges him to a race against a quad bike. As well as annoying Richard, Jeremy is in Belgium to drive the 900bhp electric, turbocharged McLaren P1 around Spa-Francochamps.
James has been deployed to Camp Bastion, in Afghanistan, to play with/look at Military vehicles.
Tom Hiddleston is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless
As they advance in years, Jeremy, James and Richard come over all nostalgic for the hot hatchbacks of their youth. To prove the pocket rockets of yesteryear were better than the present days versions, they take a Volkswagen Golf GTI, Ford Fiesta XR2i and a Vauxhall Nova SR1 (?!?) on a road trip, which concludes at an army training ground in Wales. Expect gunfire.
