    So... with Jeremy Clarkson being fired, and with James May resigning.... we can assume that the show is dead.

    Thoughts?

    I've mentioned this elsewhere but the hosts from "Top Gear - Australia" are excellent. They would be a great trio to pick up the torch and keep it going.

    Yes, although the BBC may try a season with The Hamster and who knows who else.

    Additionally Top Gear were / are doing a tour of UK arenas putting on a motoring show - again, goodness knows what will happen to this.

    At the end of the day, Jezza has put the BBC and the Top Gear programme in a few tricky situations due to his own stupidity. He has acted like a 5 year old having a tantrum, believing that he is bigger than the show itself and thus untouchable.
    Yorkshire police have requested the findings from the BBC's enquiry and will consider their own actions regarding the alleged assault

    I imagine a Netflix, Hulu, Amazon or Yahoo! might be interested in a motoring show.

    Well, it appears that Captain Slow's resignation is false... but then he updated his twitter profile

    I've read that they had plans to reintroduce the show with new host, but, the post I read had a lot of back lash. I don't know if it will ever be as good as the Clarkson era...I do enjoy the American version...but it isn't the same.

    Yea? This was more just British folks. I'll be honest. I got into top gear late, like last 3 month's late, living in the sticks and not having cable will do that. But, the amount of coverage this whole Clarkson deal has gotten is amazing.

    Top Gear under Clarkson had become one of the most popular television shows in the world.

    I've read that it is one of most popular automotive shows. I'm watching the UK version on Netflix now

    Several months and no word about the future of actual Top Gear.
    These days I'm getting my fix from Youtube.
    Namely, Regular Car Reviews (parental discretion advised) and Mighty Car Mods.

    The original crew are headed to Amazon! The website not the region. Chis Evans is the new BBC Top Gear host.
