Welcome to my first double disc release. That’s two discs in one box.

Disc One

It’s The Italian Job so obviously, I head to Kent in England for the race of a lifetime. But first I have to get ready. So, it’s the Fiorano test track in Italy where I spend a while not getting ready at all. I try the gym but it’s all rubbish so instead, I decide to compare Ferrari’s 458 Italia and the limited edition 599 GTO. On paper, that doesn’t seem fair. But in reality….

Next stop is the infamous Imola race circuit. The Stig joins me to get the most out of the Porsche GT3 and its stripped out cousin the GT3 RS. Also present are the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera and the jaw-dropping Mercedes SLS AMG with its gullwing doors.

My face gets a workout too, thanks to an Ariel Atom. With a V8 engine. Then, for some reason, The Stig does something terrible to the face of Rubens Barrichello. My final Italian shake-down comes from the £1.3 million, Nurburgring lap record holder – the Zonda R with its 750 horsepower V12 and slick tyres.

Finally, I’m ready. So it’s back to England for my first ever Classic Touring Car Race...I don’t know the car, I don’t know the circuit and I’m up against 20 experienced rivals...What could possibly go wrong?

Disc Two

The making of The Italian Job is revealed. Yes, we lift the lid – and blow the doors off – all the behind the scenes action. A team of fifteen on the road for ten days . Blistering Italian sun, mechanical problems and technical headaches plus tricks of the trade...It’s all here is an exclusive tell-all video diary.

Then of course, everything else explodes. Over the past 15 years I’ve destroyed some hateful cars in some ingenious ways. Now, for the first time ever, the best five of those destructions – as voted for by you – are brought together on this second disc.

Enjoy….

This is the best Clarkson for years. I thought the last several DVDs had been missing what this new DVD most definitely has! Heart! Not the band, but a sense that Clarky loves what he's doing, and it shines through in this. This is perfect Christmas day fodder for fathers and sons on that very painful; I mean special day. :) Pure motoring gravy for the brain.

This is Clarkson's 2010 annual special. I buy them each year and I think that this is one of the best ones. He starts by reviewing a Chevrolet Camaro and slaughters it's credentials (I hired a convertible one of these for two weeks on holiday in Florida in 2013, it looked fabulous, sounded ferocious, but handled and sloshed around like jelly). He enthuses about a Porsche 911 GT3, notwithstanding his longstanding hatred of all things 911. He takes a stunning banana yellow Ferrari 458 on a race circuit and describes it as arguably the greatest car ever made (I want one!). He then takes a tour of the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy, but he's soon back in the 458 again and continues his love affair with the car. He takes a leisurely drive in a £192K Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, calling it "like wallowing on a marshmallow nestling in a cloud". Things liven up again when he races a bright orange coloured Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera (I want one of those too!). He can't choose between the 458 and the Gallardo (though we know that he did once own a convertible Gallardo, lucky bugger). He then gets into a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, even quicker on a track than the "basic" GT3. He goes on to review a Pagani Zonda R, how can one man get so lucky with cars?! He's soon into an Aerial Atom, which destroys the GT3 RS on a track. Then it's a Mercedes AMG SLS, which makes a noise more staggering than most other cars. Clarkson loves the Merc, especially when racing it against the Gallardo. I own about 10 of Jezza's annual DVDs, and this is right up there with the best of them, if not the best. An amazing selection of cars, epic backing music, brilliantly shot, and, on top of all that, a free 2nd DVD about the making of The Italian Job. Heaven for petrol heads!

I've got a few of the annual Top Gear Christmas DVDs, and rate this the best so far. As usual there's a flimsy story providing a framework for Clarkson driving a variety of interesting and exciting cars while making comments about them. Exactly the same as every other Top Gear DVD then, but the locations (Italy) and the cars and the interviews are all a bit more beautiful and unusual and informative than most.

But what I really liked were the extras on the DVD, that genuinely showed some of what goes on behind the scenes of Top Gear, how the filming is done, some of the tricks and techniques for producing the stunning results we see on the screen. A glimpse of the time and effort that goes into a sequence that lasts a second or two in the final film. Other DVDs have claimed to show behind the scenes, but did not deliver. This one does, and for me this is worth the price alone.

Top Gear fans need this DVD.

For this DVD, Clarkson travels to Italy and tests a few - mostly Italian - supercars and in the end, there is a bit of racing back in England. Mind you, that's only with an old Escort. During all this, we are reminded of what made Top Gear become a leading entertainment show around the world. Albeit not sensational, Jeremy Clarkson is a very good journalist, he is naturally witty, he has a somewhat hidden but still existing maturity - wisdom even - and focus that is very difficult to find these days, especially on the TV screen. To support his character, the photography is very strong and the directing is sharp; there is no wasted time with irrelevant or poor material.

The show flows very well and despite the fact that most viewers will never drive a Ferrari or any other cars from the programme themselves, wanting to do so is guaranteed, just like a good evening/weekend watch. One thing I started disliking about Clarkson is his repeated referencing of certain personalities. Here, there is only one mention of Gordon Brown and another of Cameron Diaz, which is still two more than enough, but still tolerable. There aren't many cliches from the TV series either. Overall, I believe the quality is above the relevant parts of Top Gear and this production can easily prove to be one of Clarkson's best side projects. Well done, Jeremy!

PS: Clarkson, you are still a @@@@!

This is Jeremy Clarkson's best Christmas video in a long time. The premise for the video is pretty contrived with him 'training' to compete in an historic touring car race by going to Italy and driving many of the world's best supercars.

Clarkson reminds you that he is one of the best communicators on the box with a more mature car review approach set in some great locations. Even at 50 he remains a young boy playing with big toys and loving it.

There's a long session on the Imola racetrack which reminds F1 fans why this circuit should be on the calendar instead of any of the circuits added in the past decade - but that's another story.

Possibly the best feature is the 'making of' series of extras which give a really good insight into how much time and care is taken in making these films.

I bought the Blu-ray version which comes with a spare DVD and 'digital copy' to run on your computer. Why? I have no idea.
