    Dossier #52: No Time To Die Trailer discussion

    Dossier #52: No Time To Die Trailer discussion

    Alex and James share their thoughts on the first trailer for Daniel Craig's upcoming finale, No Time To Die.
    Was it everything we wanted for a trailer? Were we wrong about our previous predictions, and how many potentially new wrong predictions can we make from just two minutes of footage?
    Listen in to hear our first impressions of the trailer - and why not share yours with us, too? Email bondandbeyondpod@gmail.com, or find us on Facebook (just search 'Bond & Beyond') or Twitter (@BondBeyondPod).

    Dossier #51: Secret Cinema Casino Royale

    Dossier #51: Secret Cinema Casino Royale

    Earlier this year, Alex and friend of the show/semi-regular guest Gez attended a Secret Cinema showing of Casino Royale. Shortly after, we recorded this episode… and now we can finally release it.
    For those not in the know, Secret Cinema is an event where attendees engage in a roleplaying experience before watching a special presentation of the film on which it’s themed.
    Everyone who attends is sworn to secrecy - you even have your phone locked away - so this episode has been locked in the Bond & Beyond vault. With the event now over, it’s safe to declassify our discussion and reveal what really happened at Secret Cinema’s Casino Royale.

    Dossier #50 - Casino Royale 1967

    Dossier #50 - Casino Royale 1967

    Seven James Bonds went to Casino Royale...
    Alex and James review what is quite possibly the worst film ever to feature James Bond (albeit in an unofficial, parodical capacity). We discuss the absolute mess that is 1967's Casino Royale, a comedy film in which the real 007 (apparently) and a bunch of fellow agents sharing his name and number try to save the world.
    'Save the world' sounds vague, we grant you, but that's because it's honestly difficult to work out what this film is even about. Listen in to enjoy our thoughts on unconvincing Scottish accents, remote control ice cream vans and robot grouse drones, Ronnie Corbett's pacemaker, cartoon radiation burbs and a UFO invading London. Yes, really.

    Dossier #49 - Desert Island Mailbag

    Dossier #49 - Desert Island Mailbag

    We're back with our latest episode full of your message. This time, it's all centred around our (semi)recent Desert Island Bond episode.
    We asked you to choose the 007 film, novel, soundtrack, song, video game, gadget, vehicle, girl and Felix/Not Felix you would want if you were trapped on a desert island - and boy, did you deliver!
    (Please not this episode was recorded *before* EON announced the new title for Bond 25. We'll be discussing that and more on our next episode)
    If you haven't already sent in your Desert Island Bond choices, please do: the email is bondandbeyondpod@gmail.com.
    You can also find us on Facebook (just search 'Bond & Beyond'), Twitter (@bondbeyondpod) and all our episodes are at bondbeyondpod.tumblr.com.

    Dossier #48: Desert Island Bond

    Dossier #48: Desert Island Bond

    Picture, if you will, being stranded on an island -- like Crab Key without the Dragon tank/luxury villain's lair. To sustain you in our loneliness, you have a few items and characters from the history of Bond. Which do you choose?
    Alex and James discuss their desert island picks when it comes to film, novel, game, soundtrack, song, vehicle, gadget, Bond girls, Felix/Not Felix and more.
    We'd love to know your choices, and perhaps suggestions of other categories. Drop us an email via bondandbeyondpod@gmail.com and we'll read out as many as we can on the next episode.
    You can also find us on Facebook (just search 'Bond & Beyond'), Twitter (@bondbeyondpod) and all our episodes are at bondbeyondpod.tumblr.com.

    Dossier #47: Bond 25 Mailbag

    Dossier #47: Bond 25 Mailbag

    We're back (again!). Alex and James are joined by long-time friend of the show and semi-regular guest Gez to dig through our inbox and share your thoughts on that awkward Bond 25 reveal. 
    Given our lengthy absence (sorry again!), new information has come to light about Daniel Craig's final outing, including film locations and the director's choice of composer (much to James' composer).
    We also talk about Killing Eve, the possible directions from Rami Malek's villain and the return of Madelaine Swann, the potential for a Felix (or perhaps Felicia) Leiter spin-off, plus thoughts on whether Bond will ever be a woman. 
    If you want to email us, you can do so via bondandbeyondpod@gmail.com. You can find us on Facebook (just search 'Bond & Beyond'), Twitter (@bondbeyondpod) and all our episodes are at bondbeyondpod.tumblr.com.
