James Bond & Friends – Episode 0031: Judi Dench Earth II

The latest episode of James Bond & Friends is now available on Apple Podcasts and elsewhere.

How much Bond continuity is successful? How much is necessary?

This episode we consider the problem of continuity in a 57 year-old film franchise. We speculate why the Daniel Craig era leaned so heavily on connections to the past and wonder what could have happened to poor Sylvia Trench. Along the way we stumble on abandoned continuity opportunities, James Bond in a retirement village, alternate universes in the franchise, possible timeline strategies after Craig, David’s plan to drop Waltz’s Blofeld down a chimney stack, our hopes and wishes for No Time To Die, Cary’s Instagram account, Mathis’ AirB&B, what a Danny Boyle Bond could have looked like, and a composer compromise all culminating in a rare track from Sir Roger to play us out.

The recording took place on November 1st in the USA, Spain, and New Zealand.
