My Top Gear two-pence-worth. Between Chris Evans and the sound supervisor, the mix in the aircraft hangar was uncomfortable. Chris, a radio professional, seemed to think he needed to shout, rather than let the mike do the work. Irony isn't shouty, and irony is Top Gear's biggest asset. Matt Le Blance coped better.

Kevin Duff, a widely experienced sound man, was at the panel, having recently worked with Chris on the reborn TFI Friday. It looks like his first Top Gear. A range of people have mixed the 'old' Top Gear, most recently John Clements, who had worked on over 33 editions from 2011.

  • 4.34m in the overnight ratings, whilst not the 5m Chris Evans hoped for, is not a disaster for a Bank Holiday weekend, and the share, at 22.6%, was good.
