  • Jethro, Chris Harris and Henry Catchpole would be a great trio for Top Gear UK, I feel. We need to accept that TG was all about the old trio, but with them gone now, it only makes sense to make TG all about cars and pure driving pleasure instead trying to force fit banter amongst three strangers, of which if we're being honest only one knows what a car is.
