I can't wait to hear the BBC Radio adaptation of Ian Fleming's On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Staring Toby 'Gustav Graves' Stephens as 007 the show will feature the absolutely fabulous Joanna Lumley as Bond's ill-fated bride Tracey. Lumley appeared as one of Blofeld's Angels of Death in the 1969 film of OHMSS.
At present the date the adaptation will be broadcast has yet to be confirmed, although the recording was completed in May 2013.
I Tweeted Ian Fleming's niece Lucy Fleming and she didn't appear to know either:
The previous BBC Radio Plays, produced by Jarvis and Ayers Productions were premiered on 24 May 2008 for Dr No, 3 April 2010 for Goldfinger and 21 July 2012 for From Russia With Love so hopefully we will not have to wait too long.
*************STOP THE PRESS***********
Earlier this afternoon I had the following Tweet from Lucy Fleming:
Thanks for sharing that Lucy!
And make sure and put the date in your diary for what should be an excellent radio drama!
I'm off to sort a babysitter!
