Here’s How Twitter Reacted To The Grand Tour: Episode 3
Following last week’s strange and very off-piste effort, The Grand Tour team returned to what is considered to be their bread and butter: a classic lads’ road-trip.

The utterly ridiculous Dodge Challenger Hellcat took the spotlight away from the beautiful Aston Martin DB11 and the Rolls-Royce Dawn, but we guess that was the whole point.

The Grand Tour is ruddy terrible.
Keep trying with an open mind, but good heavens it's woeful.

The Guardian pointed out the show’s use of historic landmarks as a backdrop, which they reckoned was TGT poking fun at Top Gear for using the Cenotaph in a video with Ken Block last year.

And after reports in the papers a couple of months ago, the show gave us the gift of seeing Jeremy Clarkson’s house being blown up after he lost his bet with Hammond and May over which of the Holy Trinity of hypercars would be fastest around a track.
Wow Jeremy Clarkson really blew up his house on the grand tour?

Everyone seems pretty pleased with the latest episode, though, and we’re hoping for more of the same come Friday. Roll on episode four!
