For the third and final season of An Idiot Abroad, Ricky Gervais is sending his buddy Karl Pilkington in the footsteps of Marco Polo, who spent three years traveling from Venice to China in the 13th Century. And, this time, Ricky decided to give Karl a travel companion, Life's Too Short star Warwick Davis. They're about to have "the adventure of a lifetime, whether they like it or not."
