Customer Review

on 24 October 2008
I've already watched this particular Top Gear Special a number of times on DVD (including at 1080i, using a good upscaling player) and have always been impressed by the quality of the picture. I expected this blu-ray edition to be somewhat better than the DVD, but the difference is nothing less than remarkable: the image quality at 1080P is truly spectacular, with an amazing level of detail, far exceeding any of my expectations.

The programme itself is one of the Top Gear team's best efforts, and you can see why it was chosen to be their first blu-ray release. My only criticism would be that, whilst this is an extended version of the programme that was originally broadcast, there's nothing in the way of "extras" on this disc (as was the case with the DVD release). Given that the show itself is about 70 minutes in length, this doesn't really represent the best use of the format, or very good value, for that matter. All the same, it's still a superbly entertaining film and an excellent representation of what blu-ray is capable of.

Let's hope the BBC doesn't waste any time in releasing more of Clarkson, Hammond and May's adventures in this format!
