New Top Gear 2012
The boys are coming back. The trio, who make Sunday nights (or weekday mornings and evenings if you've got no job and Dave on 24/7) slightly more bearable, are set to return for an 18th series.

This is a good thing because after their Indian Christmas adventure a fair few people feel as though the TG TV trio owe the license fee payer something a little better. While we wouldn't go as far as that, we'd like to see them return to form after the truly dismal Crimbo special. Looking at the trailer below, it seems like they can do it.

At a glance it looks like we'll see 'Brutus', a C63 AMG going very sideways, an aeroplane tackle the track (see above image), Nascar, more of the Stig's (very large – can Stigs breed?) family and some sort of 'challenge'. And, knowing the cast, expect lots and lots of loud opinions designed to put a few noses out of joint (and get some nice letters of complaint sent in).

Reckon this'll be another good series? Or do you think its past its best? Let us know in the comments.
