Top Gear

Series 22 - Episode 6



How well do hamsters fare in extreme cold? Time to find out, as Richard Hammond is dumped in the frozen wastes of Canada, armed with a newfangled watch that has the power to project an emergency Bat-signal, or Hamster-signal in this case, into the sky in times of distress.

Hope he’s got a flask and a blanket, because would you believe it, the rescue squad is Jeremy Clarkson and James May, riding in a Hennessey Ford F150 Velociraptor and a Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD. In case you don’t know, those are “muscle trucks”, ie ludicrously tough and weighty 4x4s. Can Clarkson and May find their friend before their testosterone reaches crisis level?

Back at home, Gillian Anderson wrestles with the Reasonably Priced Car.


Richard Hammond is dropped into the remote, frozen wastes of Canada to test a watch with a built-in emergency beacon. The distress signal is sent directly to Jeremy Clarkson and James May, who get their hands on two machines and set off on an epic adventure to find their colleague. Plus, Jeremy puts the new 471bhp Lexus RC F coupe thought its paces, while The Fall and The X-Files star Gillian Anderson takes to the track in the Reasonably Priced Car.
