We talk all over the Bond films. Just don’t ask us to whistle.

    Sherlock Holmes in New York

    Sherlock Holmes in New York

    – Ah, I make it just on half-past three.
    – Eight, Holmes.
    – What on earth are you talking about?
    – Half-past eight, see.
    – Watson, we are on New York time.
    – Oh. Oh, well I’ve always found Greenwich time perfectly adequate to me needs. I see no reason for changing it now.


    This month: New York! With a horribly miscast Roger Moore as Sherlock Holmes and a horribly misjudged John Watson in Patrick Macnee, Sherlock Holmes in New York is the story of a ruddy-cheeked and thoroughgoingly heterosexual consulting detective, his toffy-nosed dimwit sidekick, and their inexplicably beautiful girlfriend (Charlotte Derampling), who all harbour a dark secret, in the form of an appalling American moppet called Scott. Plus, all of the world’s gold has been stolen, or at least shifted to a nearby floor. Which is why, dear listener, it took us two attempts to work up the courage to even watch this.

    (Don’t) see the film

    If you want to spend some money here, a plastic disc release of the film is available. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK) (Amazon AU)

    If not, it’s currently up on YouTube, for some reason.

    What the Butler Saw

    What the Butler Saw

    – Actually, I wanted a word or five about the old Groupee,
    official magazine you know, I’m acting as PRO.
    – From the HQ?
    – BHQ.
    – On TTR?
    – JJV. seconded from RHB.
    – Oh really, how’s the GCM.?
    – A-1.
    – MY?
    – 50 PPR.
    – Downgraded to 007, eh?


    This month, Steed and Mrs Peel are joined by John Le Mesurier, while we are joined again by Steven B, ably assisting us as we investigate various military bigwigs with improbable facial hair, who appear to be leaking valuable secrets to our enemies. Meanwhile, Diana Rigg’s Spotlight photo is getting one hell of a workout. Which is impossible to object to, really.

    As is now well established, Series 4 of The Avengers is also available in a lavish Blu-ray box set. Which is how we watched it. (Amazon US) (Amazon UK) (Amazon AU)

    The Man from MI.5

    The Man from MI.5

    – I see. Oh! Are you going to tie me up?

    – You bet I am.

    – Well, I don’t mind, really, but may I fix my face before I die? It’s in such a mess.


    This month, we’re joined by Steven B from New to Who to investigate the theft by some puppets of the blueprints for a new atomic weapon. Inevitably, Lady Penelope gets tied to a bomb or something, and we have mere moments to locate her before she is completely exploded. The sets are lavish, the hardware is impressive and the eyebrow lifts are the most expensive and time-consuming eyebrow lifts until Rodge takes over as Bond. Thunderbirds are go, in The Man from MI.5.

    No Time to Die (roundtable, with spoilers)

    No Time to Die (roundtable, with spoilers)

    Can I just have one nice evening before the world explodes?


    After a disastrous attempt to record a commentary on No Time to Die results in several cinemagoers calling the police, we decide to regroup, get some drinks in, and hold a roundtable discussion of Daniel Craig’s last film in the role. So: when SPECTRE holds a Christmas drinks thing despite Covid restrictions and everyone ends up feeling quite unwell, James Bond, Felix Leiter and 007 (it’s complicated) team up (sort of) to find the renegade scientist responsible. A whole bunch of things happen, and a generation of Bond fans are scarred for life as a result.

    Be warned. There will be spoilers.

    Here is a link to the #IAmNotYourVillain campaign by Changing Faces UK, which calls on filmmakers to stop using scars and disfigurement as a signifier of villainy.

    The film is currently screening in a cinema new you, at last. Streaming and DVDs and things will all come later.

    Crossplot

    Crossplot

    – It’s nothing much. It’s only serious.


    This month, advertising account executive Gary Fenn (Roger Moore) and fiery underwear model Marla Kougash (Claudie Lange) find themselves on the run as they try to foil a violent fascist takeover of Great Britain. Meanwhile Richard (Martha Hyer), James (Dudley Sutton), Brendan (Mark Ruffalo) and Nathan (an extremely rosaceous Sir Bernard Lee) take copious liquid advantage of the recent lifting of Sydney’s lockdown by slurring their way through the long-forgotten quota quickie Crossplot.

    The Interrogation

    The Interrogation

    – You’re not the first person to pass through my hands, Stirling.

    – I never thought I was.

    – They all broke eventually.

    – I’ll try and spoil your record.


    This month, James finds himself drugged, sweaty and trapped in a prison cell with a wastepaper basket and no visible means of escape, while Richard insistently questions him about the identity of the mysterious Renfield or something. Meanwhile, Brendan and Nathan flap about uselessly outside. It sounds like a job for The Champions.

HIlarious

Only one episode so far, but it already promises to be as hilarious as the same team’s Doctor Who podcast Flight Through Entirety.
