“You see mister Bond, we are not so different, you and I.” No, it’s not a line from one of the nefarious villains Fleming’s 007 adventures, but the underlying theme of Sky’s new miniseries, “Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond”. Whilst it is true that there are many similarities between Bond and his creator, […]

What with being caught up with all the splendid events surrounding the 50th Anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, I completely forgot to post this.

“Ah, Mr. Bond, we’ve been expecting you” Whilst this could be the line of some megalomaniacal villain, it is far more likely the universal cry of the typical Bond fan as they eagerly await the next oo7 film. Sadly, it looks like they will be in for quite a long wait. For those of you […]

The Aston Martin DB5. Possibly the most recognised car in the world, thanks to one less-than-careful previous owner, namely James Bond, oo7. In the novel Goldfinger, Ian Fleming gave Bond the Aston Martin DB Mk III to temporarily replace his usual Bentley, which he takes from the Secret Intelligence Service’s car pool.
