When does the new series of Top Gear start on BBC Two in 2014?

It’s now been officially revealed by the BBC that season 21 of Top Gear will indeed begin airing on Sunday, 2 February, 2014, on BBC Two. As usual, the shows start time will be 8:00pm.

This is in contrast to earlier rumors triggered by a Jeremy Clarkson tweet, which suggested episode 1 would be broadcast on January the 23rd. This never made much sense due to the day being a Thursday instead of the programmes traditional Sunday slot.

It’s also now confirmed that the new series will run for a total of 7 episodes, with the first show seeing Hugh Bonneville as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

There is however believed to be a very late ‘Christmas Special’ due to be aired some time early this year, possibly in March. This could now act as the series 21 finale.

One thing we know for sure is Clarkson, Hamster, Captain Slow and The Stig will all be back for the new series, getting up to their fun, if formulaic antics and adventures.

    The christmas special was available on dvd only. Does this mean license payers money was used on the show and the only way the license paying public could see it was buy the dvd?

      The perfect road trip dvd is not the Christmas special. Its a stand alone programme with Clarkson and Hammond

      Yes, the BBC forces you by law to subscribe to a ridiculously overpriced service with poor quality programs then uses the money you pay to produce programs that are not shown on their channel and you have to pay for again to watch on DVD (despite having funded the thing in the first place).
      I wish someone would challenge this model in the European court as I’m sure it breaks several laws. BBC funding has to change, I only watch Top Gear on the BBC, yet have to pay £150 annually to fund the decrepit dinosaur or be fined £2000.

      We really need to do something about it.
