MEET YOUR TOP GEAR PRESENTERS: Q&A WITH RORY, CHRIS AND MATT

We put Top Gear Presenters Rory Reid, Chris Harris and Matt LeBlanc under the spotlight in our latest Q&A:

1. What was the favourite place you visited from last series?

Rory: So far, that would have to be Kazakhstan, as it’s so vastly different to anywhere else I’ve ever visited. The landscape, the culture and the customs are all fascinating, as are the people. Being a bit of a stargazer, I was doubly fascinated with thevplace as it’s home to the Baikonor Cosmodrome, from where  the very first people were launched into space.

Chris: There were parts of Montenegro that I loved – I remember standing with Matt on top of a mountain looking down onto a lake… I loved Montenegro.

 

2. What’s been your favourite car to drive in this series?

Matt: The Lamborghini Huracan was a fun car to spin around

Rory: Volkswagen Golf GTI. Sabine and I did that film. It’s such a good car. It is not on the level of a Porsche but in the right hands it is quicker.

Chris: I had a full 11/10, out of body of moment when I drove Ferrari FXX K. That woke me up proper sideways. It does 120mph. Nobody else had driven it before. Amazing.

 

3. What’s been the funniest moment on the show?

Chris: In TV you want things to happen, in Top Gear we want things to happen. But when an unscheduled crash happens it can be quite funny – it wasn’t at the time but looking back it was funny.

Rory: Watching Chris Harris attempt to drift an Alfa Romeo through the narrowest of gaps. I won’t spoil it for you, and I really shouldn’t laugh, but I nearly fell out of my chair.

 

4. What is your favourite racing track to drive on?

Chris: How many other people have drifted a Ferrari FXX K around Daytona? I like drifting stuff that shouldn’t be drifted. When someone tells me ‘that’s not a car that should be drifted’, I’ll go against that and say yes, it is.

 

5. If you had an unlimited budget what would be your dream car?

Chris: It changes on a daily basis because I’m a car enthusiast. For me today I woke up and wanted a 1974 Porsche 911 GT3 RS – it’s one of the best cars driven and about £1.2 million pounds sterling.

Rory: Probably the Bugatti Chiron. I didn’t like the look of them at first, but the design has really grown on me and the performance speaks for itself.

 

 6. Which car best represents you / your personality? / Describe each other.

What’s Rory like?

Chris: He is competitive, he is a perfectionist and he has an interest in the style of cars that I love seeing. I love seeing things that I don’t really get. Matt He has this boyish quality to him that gives the audience a voyeuristic view of what we are doing. He has this bright eyed excitement about it all, which is really endearing and fun to be around.

And Matt?

Chris: He is a big friendly bear, he is much wiser than people give credit for and he has seen it all. I think people will be surprised to see his driving skills.

DANILO’S Q&A WITH THE ARCHERS SCRIPTWRITER KERI DAVIES

Born in Treherbert, Wales, Keri Davies is a producer and writer, best known for his work on BBC radio soap opera The Archers. Keri was formerly the show’s senior producer but since 2003, he has been a scriptwriter.

Keri is also involved in putting together the ever-popular Official The Archers Calendar! As well as sourcing some of the smaller Archers portrait photos, Keri’s main role is to write the copy that accompanies each month – which among other things means adapting and testing the recipes! 😉

We asked Keri the following questions:

1. How long have you been a scriptwriter for The Archers?

I’ve written scripts for The Archers since 2003. Before that I was the programme’s Senior Producer and subsequently its Web Producer. I’ve been working on the programme in various capacities since 1992.

2. Who is your favourite character?

This is a really difficult one, as there are so many wonderful characters in The Archers. I do like to write comedy, so it’s great to have characters that can carry that off, like Jazzer McCreary, Brian Aldridge, Lynda Snell, Susan Carter, Eddie Grundy, Joe Grundy… I could go on – but I won’t.

3. What has been your favourite plotline?

I’m going to go back to well before I worked on The Archers, to my early days as a listener. Young Shula Archer (now Hebden-Lloyd) and her boyfriend Nigel Pargetter got up to all sorts of scrapes – including Nigel illegally driving away a car because he thought it was Shula’s. It was great fun to listen to, and it started me on a habit which became a lifetime’s pleasure – and a quarter century of work, too.

4. What is the best part of your job?

Knowing that what I do affects people – it moves them, cheers them up – and sometimes, as with our recent story of domestic abuse, it can shed a light on real-life issues.

5. What do you like to do when you’re not working on The Archers?

Music and dancing. I sing in a choir, play drums and various other instruments and am always up for a dance. Recently I’ve been learning swing dancing.
