While Alex Drake was writing the first significant details of 1983/2008 onto a notepad in her flat, the original Top Gear titles were playing on her television which were interrupted by the image of the policeman with the severely damaged face. After the image ended, Top Gear continued with a review of the Audi Quattro. (A2A Series 3: Episode 1)
