Fans of the BBC show “Top Gear” will be concerned. Everyone else will say “who’s that?”
I’m part of the first group.
Hammond, the handsome, genial counter-point to Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear crashed while trying to break the UK land speed record for the TV show. Teased for his lack of stature, white teeth and teen-girl magazine pin-up looks, Hammond is a key part of the show staff balancing out Clarkson’s searing tongue and May’s posh leanings. I hope he fully recovers… not just because I’m human but because it could be the source of no end of hilarity on the show (plus, the other option sucks).
