Sumary of Richard Hammond: ‘When we’re together, everything goes wrong’:
- In the case of The Grand Tour and presenters Jeremy Clarkson Richard Hammond and James May it was more a case of grounded.
- A show accustomed to far-flung filming locations, courtesy of Covid, all storylines involving international travel – some of which had already been set in motion – were shelved, indefinitely.
- Swapping the Soviet Union for the Scottish Highlands, The Grand Tour: Lochdown special saw the presenters adopting something of a ‘back to basics’ attitude.
- Describing the forthcoming “mini special” as “an unplugged album”, Clarkson, 61, says it’s a change of pace that “some people might quite like”.
- So maybe they’ll think the same of this Grand Tour,” notes the presenter, nodding to his recent Amazon Prime series, Clarkson’s Farm.
- Stepping up to the plate with an iconic Cadillac Coupe De Ville as driven by Elvis, a Lincoln Continental as driven by Dallas’ Jock Ewing, and a Buick Riviera as piloted by Clint Eastwood, the three hosts take on the Highlands (and lowlands) of Scotland in true Grand Tour fashion.
