Last week, we reported that understandably the Mongolia special (Episode 13) would be the season finale as right at the start of Season 3, it was noted that it would consist of 13 episodes or 13 weeks.
Thankfully, a few days later Andy Willman, executive producer of The Grand Tour published a short article in The Radio Times explaining the backstory of the Mongolia special and he confirmed that there would be an extra episode this week.
This week Episode 13
Funeral for a Ford: In the final episode of the series, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May present a short and informative history class on one of the bedrocks of British life; the medium-sized Ford saloon. Starting with the Cortina of the 1960s and ‘70s, the three chart the history of the car that changed British society and provided transport for millions of dads including Clarkson senior and father May though not, to his annoyance, Richard’s dad. To cover the ‘80s part of this documentary, Richard takes to the track in the legendary Sierra RS Cosworth before all three hosts re-group to celebrate the Ford Mondeo and this model’s unique claim to fame. Since the Mondeo seems certain to cease production without replacement in the coming years, the history lesson ends with a touching memorial service to this totem of British life.
