Africa Special, Part 1 - S19-E6

Corrected entry: Halfway though the episode Clarkson, Hammond and May encounter an impassable river which they cross on a home-made car ferry, dragging it across on stout ropes. The river can't be all that impassable - how did they anchor the ropes to the opposite side before the first crossing? Don't tell me someone swam across - the river is infested with crocodiles.


Correction: Their adventures are always accompanied by well equipped experts and the camera crews. They have the necessary equipment to cross the river, but the challenge was for them to design a way for the three of them to get their cars across. They use the equipment to help them build the solutions. Regardless, on this occasion we see James paddle a small canoe across to secure the ropes.


Episode #12.1 - S12-E1

Character mistake: Both Jeremy Clarkson and his guest Sir Michael Parkinson identify "The Four Yorkshiremen" sketch - about four Yorkshiremen trying to outdo each other with their complaints about life - as a Monty Python sketch. It isn't. It is from "At Last The 1948 Show", presented by David Frost, and was first performed by Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Marty Feldman, although Monty Python have often performed it.

Season 10 generally

James: Why would Jeremy think you could make a limo out of a Fiat Panda? You could strech it a mile and it would only be as long as n a normal car.
Richard: Have you met Jeremy Clarkson? Tall man, curly hair, idiot?
