Thought the tribute to Sabine was really well done,
No contribution from Chris Evans apart from a clip of him throwing up , which I suppose is appropriate as that’s the reaction I have when he used to be on.

I saw the last 15 minutes. So full of life, fabulous warm smile, a proper sense of humour. I always enjoyed the pieces she did on the show. Very sad.

I thought that was odd, but I guess he doesn't look back on his time on Top Gear with much fondness.

I found the Sabine Schmitz tribute quite touching, and very well done.
Such a shame she’s gone, but definitely thought of her as like a fine wine.
A top girl.

Thing is...I'm not being told what is good and bad in a car by Freddie or Paddy. Leave the reviews to Harris!

Very moving tribute to Eddie Kidd. Still insanely handsome.

First time I’ve enjoyed Top Gear for a long time. Only left it on because I couldn’t be bothered to turn over. Glad I didn’t.

Just watched it. Top Gear have made a few stunning 20 minute films over the years. The Eddie Kidd tribute was enthralling and moving. I wasn't into bikes as a kid, but was obviously aware of him, as was my wife, to my surprise. We both sat in silence for 20 minutes then had to compose ourselves briefly.

Didn't think I'd ever bother owning an Alfa. I'm reconsidering.

Good start.

That Eddie Kidd tribute was something very special

Nice one guys 😎
Thanks for the heads up on this, normally find McGuiness bloody irritating but he got this one spot on. (y)

How good were some of those stunt riders? And I loved the ride past. You could really tell it really meant something to Eddie and the stunt riders.
