If watching the Top Gear Christmas special is a part o your family's holiday tradition, we have some bad news. Jeremy Clarkson tweeted today the special will not air until sometime in March. It's impossible for someone to explain something like that in 140 characters or less, but it's probably very complicated. Jalopnik says that the "PQ17" in Clarkson's tweet refers to a WW1 convoy in the Arctic Ocean. We look forward to that program in January, but we may shed a tear or two before March.
