What Do We Know About The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown?
Finally, fans can gather up and watch Jeremy, Richard, and James in a new special, The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown on Amazon Prime. This is the infamous Scotland episode that was filmed during the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic.
This is the first episode of Season 5. Usually, the trio embark on exotic journeys to places like the southern tip of South America, or the North Pole. However, the worldwide pandemic kept them home in the U.K. Moreover, this new episode is a bit of a documentary about travel during this crazy time.
According to the show’s longtime producer, Andy Wilman, who told The Sun a bit about the Scottish excursion. “We were trying to think of different options, and where we ended up was we just shot one recently up in Scotland, a kind of mini coronavirus special, which will be 60-odd minutes rather than 90.”
Thanks to IMDb, we get a bit more description. “The presenters are celebrating the great 70s American cars they saw in TV shows, as they road trip around Scotland, creating chaos on the streets of Edinburgh and building a homemade floating bridge across the Hebridean sea.”
