India Special - S18-E1

Revealing mistake: Watch the opening sequence of this episode very carefully - Clarkson, May and Hammond are not in Downing Street (they are on a set that stands on the BBC backlot) and library footage of the Prime Minister is cleverly edited in to make it look as if they were there at the same time. Even taking into account the fact that the Prime Minister's security service would never allow such an intrusion onto Downing Street, the line up of the shots does not quite match - our three intrepid heroes should be visible in shot when the Prime Minister is shown exiting number 10, but they are nowhere to be seen. It is all sleight of hand and clever editing, but detectable if you watch carefully enough.

Richard: Have you met Jeremy Clarkson? Tall man, curly hair, idiot?

Mistakes

During the police car challenge, Richard Hammond is taking his homemade police car around the track on a timed lap (with extra points for flamboyant driving). As he rounds the Hammerhead corner, the makeshift stinger (that's a spike strip for the colonials) on the front of his car breaks off and is left behind. He then drives through a stack of boxes, getting one caught on the remains of the stinger mounting. As he approaches the second-to-last corner, the box has gone and the stinger is now back on the front of the car. In the final shot as his car limps across the finish line, the stinger is once again missing and the box has returned. Clearly footage from a different lap was substituted in.
