    There are rumours that this season will have less car destruction. Would you watch Top Gear if it was just about the simple car reviews?

    This rumour began when journalists took quotes from a Radio Times interview out of context.


    James May in the Radio Times: "the keen observer will see a subtle change this series, a slight retreat from the Last of the Summer Wine tomfoolery".


    Note the parts underlined.

    Yes. I would watch them drive around a phone book.

    Andy Wilman, Executive Producer of Top Gear, has posted a blog here.


    That should clear things up.
