Our simple guide of how you can can watch Top Gear Series 30 on BBC iPlayer from anywhere in the world

The intrigue surrounding Top Gear and its next steps has always remained enticing to fans. Since the departure of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond in 2015, this intrigue has only seemed to have increased. In their sophomore season together in Series 27, Chris Harris, Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff had a knack of wrapping their viewers up in their warmth and charisma. In 2021, the boys have retained that spirit going into their fourth season together.

Top Gear in 2021 remains unmissable television. But, unfortunately for those living abroad, the show will be unaccessible via BBC iPlayer. Most will have tried and failed to access BBC iPlayer when attempting from overseas because the BBC has a strongly enforced policy of geoblocking. Even the best VPN or trusted proxy link can fail to unblock BBC iPlayer.

So, how do you combat this?


Here's how you can stream full episodes of Top Gear Series 30 on BBC iPlayer.

1. Download Chrome Browser, if you're not already using it.

2. Install Beebs, this nifty tool redirects all your BBC requests.

What to expect with the new season of Top Gear

After watching the trailer, you’d think that the challenges being attempted by the lads could be a bit OTT, yet they never plunge into this territory. The BBC has managed to scale up the drama of the new season of Top Gear without compromising its core appeal. The show has always been at its best when focusing on the subject it knows most intimately: cars.

The new season serves as a love letter to cars and motor sport as a whole. Yet in the songwriting and delivery of its new episodes, Top Gear Series 30 feels more grown up with its approach to challenges. Despite being filmed in limited capacity during lockdowns, it feels like it has been a period of re-energising that has brought the lads closer together.

Who are the hosts of Top Gear Series 30

Top Gear Series 27 was the season that was to win people over, Top Gear Series 30 is the season that comes as the payoff. Chris Harris, Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff have never been better. If you love what you see from the boys, we recommend that you stream Top Gear Series 29 as well.

Some of the best episodes of Top Gear were broadcast in 2020. There were many stunts and challenges but the best was The 'Wall of Death'.  The gravity-defying vertical drive was undertaken on a purpose-built cylinder which meant the boys were feeling up to four times the effects of normal gravity.
