Oh dear God, no!

I've just heard that Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond crashed a car he was testing for the programme yesterday, and is in a critical condition in hospital. Of course, this would have to happen right after I decide to swap over my Doctor Who-icons for Top Gear ones!

so so sad and shocking isn't it :( - I found out last night and was terrified to turn on the radio this morning. They are now saying they are "reasonably optimistic" for a "good recovery", whatever that means. Bless him and keep him improving. You have TG icons awww. I keep thinking back to the day I went to the studios. Such a lovely, genuine, friendly guy. He must get better.

He must, he simply must! I wouldn't wish the kind of accident he's had on anyone, but somehow it seems wrong to have happened to one of the Top Gear presenters. I love these guys, it's their interaction that makes me tune in to the show every time.

BTW, I hear that these days, there's a 9-year waiting list to get into the studios...

I have indeed. It's taken me weeks to gather them together, and even now I've only got 18 (and 2 of those are Petrolhead, too).

totally and absolutely.

9 years???? omg! (I'm on that list!) We were lucky to get an extra special recording - you've been pointed to that squee before I think? ;) - where they were re-recording links for the USA...so skipped the usual list.

I am totally in love with your icons.. Especially that Hamster one below. Love im.

That Hamster one below is one I found almost a year ago. I came across it again the other day and thought to myself "that's it! I'll go Top Gear on my journal!" It seemed like such a good idea at the time...

it is a good idea....

much encouraged by some news today ... James said Hammy tried to sit and smile when he came in and Jeremy said that after getting no reaction by being nice to him Richard smiled when he said "the reason you are here is because you are a crap driver!". Apparently the only physical sign of the accident is a black eye.

Keeping everything firmly in the crossed position.

I'm just commenting again to get another icon.

Sitting up? A black eye the only evidence he's been in an accident? That's brilliant news! Seems like they can't keep a good Hamster down.

But yeah - probably best not to uncross those fingers and toes yet...
