The Grand Tour S2E4 Preview: The Show Is Going "Unscripted"

By James O Malley on at

So, over the last few weeks we've repeatedly slagged off The Grand Tour for being so egregiously scripted. From the official press release, it certainly sounds like on this Friday's show, Clarkson, Hammond and May will be getting their own back. Here's the official Amazon description:

"In this episode Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May attempt to show what would happen if The Grand Tour made a completely unscripted film with no pre-arranged locations, no set-up stunts, and no planned incidents. All they agree is that the starting point will be in Croatia, where Jeremy arrives in an Audi TT RS, Richard turns up with a not-at-all-comparable Ariel Nomad, and James brings along an old Lada which he has decided to turn into a fire engine. What follows is a demonstration of why some kind of script is generally a good thing. Also in this show, Richard takes the new McLaren 720S to the Eboladrome and in Celebrity Face Off Michael Ball goes head-to-head against Alfie Boe to find the world’s fastest classical singer with an interesting connection to the British motor industry."

We're sure it is just a coincidence that May's "fire engine" has "ARSE" written on the door, when it has been opened.

Here's some more images from the episode, which hits Amazon on Friday.
