It looks like we’re not alone in being shocked by the news of the accident that Richard Hammond, presenter of Top Gear suffered yesterday whilst filming for the show. Aside from the obvious abscence when the new series starts, we hope that the accident isn’t used as excuse to change the programme. I’m sure the BBC took all the proper precautions, but even with everything in place, accidents happen. But that debate is for the future. For the moment we’d just like to wish Richard a speedy and full recovery.
