Craig Jamieson

Craig is Top Gear’s resident Australian, who now actually resides in Australia again. Throughout a decade-plus career writing for the likes of Top Gear and GQ in the UK and Australia, Craig has won no awards for his work, nor received any plaudits for his professionalism, demeanour, or ability to hold civil conversation. Which, if you meet him, will immediately make sense.
The reason Top Gear keeps him around is simple, but not one we’ve actually figured out yet. Does he have incriminating photographs of someone in upper management? Is he in the Masons? Was there just no one else available? In any case, Craig’s unique ability to be entirely done with something, pretty much from the outset, lends Top Gear a distinctly incisive tone you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. Just to reiterate, it is lending, not giving – he wants it back eventually.
