Saw it last night, it was pretty cool!

Was also watching an old one, bus/train vs DB9 from Dover to St. Tropez (or something), I loved it!

that was another brilliant one!! I loved last night's British Bulldog with the Army, do you think he really was in the car when they mangled it?

Presumably Royal Mail or whatever they call themselves use planes for long trips, don't they? Must be faster than a Porsche.

This is the first of the new series - and the last as the production studio in Manchester (ITV) is being closed down. Good quality drama that you don't see very often these days sadly.

Nah, don't think he was..

I was wondering what they said about live ammo, I mean.. You can never be very accurate from that distance with those guns, how could they be sure they didn't hit him?

That aside, all their challanges are great! They once did a race or whatever in Vietnam on motorbikes or something, hilarious :rofl:

Or ferry vs mclaren to scandinavia
(And then while in the Netherlands say they are in Belgium :frown: )

The letter first got on a heli, then 3 or 4 plane trips and then got delivered by a clio (?).
