It feels like forever since The Grand Tour Series 3 graced the screens of our devices, but #amazonshitshow is finally back for Series 4. Leaving the tent behind, Clarkson, Hammond, and May are back with the first of a series of feature-length specials.
Taking a one time only break from cars, the boys set out on an epic journey across Cambodia and Vietnam…in boats. This adventure-packed voyage sees the hapless trio experience thrills, spills and genuine danger as they try to navigate their way through the world’s most iconic waterway – the Mekong Delta.
Naturally, the bickering trio set sail in three very different types of vessels. Jeremy, ever the diplomat, opts for a PBR (Patrol Boat, River), the famed jet-powered Vietnam War fighting boat as seen in Apocalypse Now.
Richard channels his inner Don Johnson by choosing a Miami Vice style speedboat, and Naval Captain Slow brings a touch of canal holiday style to the Mekong, with an 80-year-old wooden river cruiser.
Both men and machines face an 800km journey that turns out to be more difficult than anything they have experienced in cars. Flash storms, crashes, gigantic weed beds, and even global warming all conspire to thwart their progress, and the climax of this epic voyage is one of the most dangerous challenges Clarkson, Hammond, May – and their film crew – have ever endured.
The Grand Tour presents: Seamen will be available on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 13th December 2019.
