The BBC has decided to drop Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear, following some sort of altercation between him and a producer over food being served at the end of a days shooting.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainme…

Very little information has actually been released about the incident. It’s only ever been referred to as a “fracas” in the media and “a bit of a dust-up” by Clarkson’s co presenter James May.
I’m a huge fan of the show and Clarkson’s style of presenting, but if he punched a member of the crew because his food wasn’t hot then axing him is the right decision. There’s a huge difference between an unbroadcast, antiquated, school-yard rhyme (one of Clarkson’s previous “offences”) and physical violence.

Will Top Gear be the same without him? No it won’t. Will Top Gear survive his departure? Yes it will.

Another very popular BBC show is “Have I Got News For You”, which has been running since 1990. For the first 12 years it was hosted by a chap called Angus Deayton, but he was dropped in 2002 because he ended up IN the headlines in a scandal about prostitutes and illegal drugs. There was a question as to if the show could continue without the dead-pan presenter. It’s still running, 13 years on. They just altered the format so that the presenter is a different guest each week, rather than a set anchor.

Provided they don’t do something stupid and start recruiting children to present it (minimum age of 40, please, BBC. Grumpy men in fast cars are funny), Top Gear will endure.

Jolly good! Small projects can be nurtured into larger ones, if desired!

This is probably a stupid question, but are you a brony? (i won't hate you if you are, mainly because i am a brony.)

I don't think I am. I've only seen one or two episodes.

Just read about Terry Pratchett passing. Has any of his works influenced you?

I had BBC news on at the moment the story broke. I've never read any Pratchett. Beyond comics, I don't read much fiction at all.

He actually had a few comics and graphic novels if I'm not mistaken - the first two of his Discworld stories, The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic, as well as The Last Hero if i remember correctly (also a Discworld story, featuring one of his recurring 'heroes', Cohen the Barbarian). Something tells me you'd like his materials, equal parts fantasy and comedy/parody, his sense of humor was fantastic...

Do you think Top Gear will survive if Clarkson is sacked?

Of course, but they'd need to take it slow and have his replacement take the back seat while May/Hammond adopt a more prominent role in the show.
