Top Gear Three Wise Men Christmas Special

This Boxing Day Jeremy, Richard and James are back with one of their toughest task yet: passing themselves off as ‘three wise men’ while recreating the journey following a star to Bethlehem.

The journey of 1,200 perilous miles leads them across Kurdistan, Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Israel, taking in inhospitable stretches of obscure mountain and desert. The presenters chose a fleet of second-hand convertibles: a Mazda MX5, BMW Z3 and Fiat Barchetta.

The Three Wise Men Christmas Special will be on BBC2 on Boxing Day at 8pm. Not only that, Top Gear will be back with another new episode just five days before on Tuesday 21 December at 8pm on BBC2. And then the series proper begins early in the New Year.

  1. Boxing day will be on Sunday 26th December in Britain.

    In other countries, in can be on the Monday following Christmas, so this year, the 27th, not the 28th in any case though.

    Hint to remember: Boxing day is when you remember to punch your best friend as he tried to grab your wife’s bum the day before, on Christmas.
