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.
