George Lazenby heads back into the world of MI6 in forthcoming audiodrama
The Australian actor heads an all-star cast that also features Glynis Barber, Nickolas Grace, Michael Brandon and Terence Stamp as the head of MI6.
George Lazenby, who 50 years ago succeeded Sean Connery to become the youngest ever 007 James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, is plunging back into the world of MI6 as reluctant spy Dr Jason Love in Passport to Oblivion.
An audio spy adventure based on a series of internationally bestselling books (published in 19 languages) by James Leasor, Passport to Oblivion features an all-star cast that also includes Glynis Barber, Nickolas Grace, Michael Brandon and, as MI6 head C, Terence Stamp.
Passport to Oblivion is the first of ten planned audio recordings by award-winning Spiteful Puppet and based on books first published in the 1960s. The novels, which sold in their millions, have a worldwide fan base. This is the first time they have been adapted as audio dramas.
On his first appearance in print, Dr Jason Love was hailed as ‘the natural successor to James Bond’ and Leasor was the first author contacted to continue the 007 novels when Ian Fleming died. Instead it went to Kingsley Amis when Leasor passed on the assignment.
Spiteful Puppet have been granted the license for all 10 of James Leasor’s Dr Jason Love books. Passport to Oblivion (2-disc audio set) will be released 29 November 2019.
