All good things must come to an end.
It was going to happen at some point. We accepted it and kept reminding ourselves that change can be good. Or it can just outright suck. In case you haven’t already noticed, the official Top Gear website (no, NOT Top Gear USA) has just made perhaps the biggest change since 2003: The images of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have been removed from the website. Gone. Finito. Likely forever. Only The Stig remains on the top banner of each page.
That’s what happens when one host’s contract isn’t renewed by the BBC, while the other two hosts refuse to renew theirs because the former’s wasn’t. As of now no one is exactly sure what the BBC’s next move will be, but it’s been assured Top Gear will continue, only with new hosts. Yeah, we weren’t totally shocked to their images removed (still appears on Top Gear Middle East, interestingly) but it’s still a bit hard to take knowing Top Gear as we know it is finished. All good things must come to an end.
