The new lineup 'will' include a woman, according to Evans.

Only appropriate in modern times, but I wonder how they'll compensate for the fact that 30% of their jokes will suddenly be off limits? ^^

I'm sure you mean 95%.

They aren't that bad. They also make jokes about badly manufactured US cars ('cause nobody buys British ones), tiny Japanese ones ('cause nobody buys British ones) and how they "won the war" (because you really don't make jokes about German cars). And then of course racial stereotypes, and a few jokes about each other.

...

Alright, maybe 50% ... ;)

ah yes, the BBC have new rules about panels having a woman onboard don't they? Forgot that might come into play here.

I hope they find a suitable woman and not just someone who is available because they agreed to it.

Mock The Week may end up suffering that after awhile, but thats another subject altogether.

Vicky Butler-Henderson, Jo Brand (she's done some rallying, I think), Sabine Schmitz and Suzi Perry. There are women who could do the job for sure.

EDIT: Susie Wolff, Sue Perkins (although she didn't enjoy the attention Clarkson followers gave her on Twitter, including rape threats and murder threats...), Jodie Kidd...

Wonder how the "new Topgear" will be received? I know a lot of people (that I know and have contact with) watched the show exclusively for the "comedy". And won't watch if they don't get the "Same British" Humour. I know my Mom watched the show, especially their Challenges/races/specials and stuff, but when the reasonable car segment came up she went and made coffee. And I know a lot of people who did the same.

BBC tried to introduce Topgear Aus and US here with very limited success, people didn't find them funny here, and if Topgear UK goes the same way as Aus and Us then a lot won't watch it

It's already terrible. Two series too many.

Anyway - Evans winds me up. But I haven't really watched Top Gear so probably shouldn't comment.

I mainly stopped watching it, other than the specials which were still pretty cracking. Despite the blatant setups.

Evans is a safe pair of hands, and these days a very BBC establishment one. This is probably their way of making sure he says loyal rather than going off to revive TFI Friday more fully.

I just hope the new team will be up for doing the extreme stuff the specials often require, such as going to ridiculous places in ridiculous circumstances .

A three year bump for this. Anyone catch the most recent episode of "New" Top Gear? Lovely little Friends reference at the end:
