Top Gear Christmas Special - Iraq to Bethlehem

The first clue we had about what the Top Gear Christmas Special would be this year was back in October when we caught the boys out playing in the Middle East with a trio of rather battered roadsters. It seemed like the makings of another road-trip special with the madness of the Middle East as a backdrop for the madness of Top Gear.

It was only a month later we learnt that the Middle East was to be the backdrop for the 2010 Top Gear Christmas Special with the boys searching for ‘The Baby Jesus’ on a road trip to Bethlehem as three modern-day wise men (oxymoron obviously springs to mind).

We speculated that as the wise men ‘Came from the East’ the boys should really be starting out their trip in Iran (Persia). That seemed a bit unlikely so we plumped for a starting point in Iraq, which should give the boys plenty of cause for on-screen concerns.

And Iraq is the starting point for the trip as Messrs Clarkson, Hammond and May land in Iraq in a transport plane – complete with their cars – to learn that:

‘Bethlehem is 1200 miles away. Between here and there there are a few wars. Don’t forget to pick up some gold,¬†frankincense and myrrh on the way.’

And so starts the Top Gear Christmas Special.
