The Grand Tour travelling tent is in the port of Rotterdam, Holland from where Richard Hammond and James May introduce a twin test between two lightweight sports cars, the civilised Mazda MX5 and the stripped-out Zenos E10, against the stunning backdrop of Morocco. Unfortunately, the pair's North African adventure is ruined by the arrival of the horribly dressed Jeremy Clarkson in the horribly expensive Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. Also in this show, Hammond and May attempt to reinvent a traditional board game by playing it with cars, and legendary Dutch band Golden Earring are on the quayside to perform their hit song, Radar Love.
The Dutch really are the tallest nation on earth. A study published in the journal eLife found that the average Dutch man is a strapping 6 feet tall. The smallest men in the world are found in East Timor, which is why this country is not known for its basketball team. See more »
The show started off with some funny skits about Holland. Then there was a promising road trip in Marocco. However, it started to get off track once Jeremy lost his subtle humour and was trying to be funny being contemptuous to animals. James and the little guy started to play a boring board game blowing up cars while thinking they were funny polluting the environment. The thing is, they have done this a hundred times before and these are cruel jokes. The best jokes are those that they play on themselves, not at the expense of animals or the environment. That's when people start losing interest in the show because it just becomes vulgar.
