If we're talking about doing fun things with SIARPC guests, you really can't go past Christopher Eccleston, whose Reasonably Priced Car materialised at the starting line accompanied by the TARDIS sound.

I wouldn't call it spoiling, so much. One of the best parts of Top Gear, and in particular the time challenges, is seeing records get broken. Simon Cowell and Jamoroquai's JK's ongoing battle for the top spot is a great example of that in real life (incidentally, torrents of the shows are availible at www.finalgear.com if you want to catch up - I'd strongly recommend it). Presumably this show will lead to a similar competition between Kate, her dad and Tony Stark (assuming neither JK nor Simon Cowell were given Omega 2).

I mean, sure, the episode seems a bit Hutchins focused but it really does stay true to the original while adding a touch of UF. It was also an unconventional way to catch up with a character who hasn't seen much of the spotlight this year, which I enjoyed a lot. If anything, I would say that the Griffon, rather than Kate, was the bridge too far, but even then it's only by a bit and it does make a kind of meta-sense in that it's conceivable that you'd see that sort of car/guest crossover on a real episode of Top Gear.

Even that's only a minor niggle though. For me, it's the greatest fake Top Gear script...


...In the world.
