Jeremy Clarkson: What Happens Now?

BBC Officially declares that Jeremy Clarkson has been sacked and will not have his contract renewed.

Jeremy Clarkson: what happens next

So, it’s finally happened. Much to the dismay of millions of his loyal followers, Jeremy Clarkson has been dropped from the BBC and Top Gear following that now-famous ‘fracas’ with one of the show’s producers.

Despite the very public support Clarkson received in the wake of his alleged misdemeanours, a BBC internal investigation has found that producer Oisin Tymon was the victim of an “unprovoked physical and verbal attack”. The investigation continued that this was a “physical attack that lasted around 30 seconds and was halted by the intervention of a witness.”

However much you respect him or value him as a broadcaster, that’s simply not the kind of thing you can get away with these days. Nevertheless, the BBC is keen for this not to be our parting memory of Clarkson’s time with the network, noting his “extraordinary contribution” – it’s a contribution that has grown Top Gear in to the biggest factual entertainment show in the world, with more than 300 million viewers. This definitely isn’t a decision the BBC has taken lightly.

But now we’re certain of Clarkson’s fate at the BBC, the next question is: what happens now? The show itself can continue with someone stepping in to take Clarkson’s place but you can’t help but feel that some of its magic would be lost. There’s certainly no solid name in the frame at the moment, and there’s no confirmation on whether James May and Richard Hammond will choose to renew their contracts either. If all three are absent from the show, then surely the format has to change. And if the format changes isn’t it better to just come up with a completely new motoring show?

What seems certain is that we’ll see Jeremy Clarkson again. Whatever you may think of him, he’s got a knack for creating compelling TV, and that’s going to be too good for other TV networks to ignore.
