The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown was a brilliant episode. The team fought against the global pandemic and where many have failed, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May came out on top. In my review of the episode, I called it better than Top Gear. Why was that? Well, things just went wrong.
Whether it was the cars or the presenters, something unexpected happens that adds an extra layer of humour.
On top of this, proper pranks returned as well! While hiding a set of James’ keys is funny, filling his caravan full of water takes things to the next level.
So here are the best accidents and pranks from The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown.
James May’s Caravan Conundrum
How does a caravan suddenly become filled with water? Obviously, it’s because it’s leaked in the famous Scotish rain… or Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond have taken it upon themselves to fill it with water using a fire engine.
James, while excusing himself for a moment on the bog with a crossword, had left his caravan free for Jeremy and Richard to play with. So after some bad parking and the desctruction of an cone, the boys take it upon themselves to have some fun.
They open the top hatch and using a fire engine, pump the poor thing full of water. James doesn’t notice the water pouring out from between the gaps around the door and opens it, getting flushed away with the torrent of water that pours out.
If you look closely at James’ feet, though, you’ll see that there’s a bit of editing going on here. It looks as though this was actually staged, and where James falls, they’ve placed something to stop him from hurting himself. For this reason, it’s the very first on our list.
