Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May left Top Gear earlier this year but that hasn't stopped the BBC from announcing plans to air a new Top Gear Christmas special.

Dubbed "Top Gear: From A-Z," the show is being billed as a "two-part extravaganza" that celebrates the Top Gear's highly successful run from 2002-2015.  The show will be voiced by John Bishop and feature "astonishing footage, insider facts and quirky statistics from the past 13 years of the world’s biggest motoring show."

Little else is known about the special, but the BBC say it will have plenty of behind-the-scenes action as well as a mysterious star guest from the Top Gear celebrity fold.  Viewers will also be shown a numbers of stunts and pranks committed during the Clarkson-era. On a more serious note, the special will go on to highlight the "brilliant journalism, beautiful photography, and the trio of middle aged men who sat at the heart of the show."

The show doesn't sound like it will have a lot of footage that hasn't already been seen but it should serve as a decent sendoff to the three hosts who made the series a worldwide phenomenon.
