James Bond & Friends – Episode 004 (Thai Boys)

The latest episode of James Bond & Friends is now available.

What will happen to the series after Daniel Craig departs?

This episode of ‘James Bond & Friends’ is hosted by James Page with guests Calvin Dyson, Mark O’Connell, and David Leigh.

We chat about the possible options the series faces after Craig steps down after Bond 25, including the idea of rebooting the series and filming the books in order as period pieces, and the crunch timetable for the 60th anniversary. Along the way, we stumble upon Bond-trainees for baton passing, flirting with the dreaded codename theory, defending Lee Tamahori, Odd Job’s cousins, female agent spin-offs, unnecessary origin stories, sexual harassment training, journalists getting Bond wrong, left-field choices for new writers, and a conspicuous absence of children.

The recording took place on March 21st, 2019 in the USA, UK, and Spain.
