Bond & Beyond

Bond & Beyond


A new podcast dedicated to the world’s favourite secret agent. Every fortnight, Alex Boucher and James Batchelor delve into the world of Bond – not just the films that made him famous, but the original novels, video games and the many, many other characters inspired by him. Read more at

Alex and James are joined by friend of the show and regular guest Gez to discuss the terrible news: No Time To Die has been delayed. Again.

Bond fans now have to wait until April 2021 to see 007’s 25th outing, so in the meantime we kill about 40 minutes of the five-month extension to our wait by discussing:

The Billie Eilish No Time To Die music video. The experience of going to the cinema during a pandemic. The Bondness of Tenet. The passing of Diana Rigg and Michael Lonsdale. Rumours that Tom Hardy or Henry Cavill could be the next Bond. Our worries for Bond 26 and the series’ 60th anniversary. And many other things.
