It's the 3rd Fleming adap by this particular production company, following Goldfinger and Dr No.

I listened to it, really enjoyed it. Obviously a certain amount of 'filleting' had gone on to fit it into a 90-minute drama, but the key stuff was pretty much all there. Tim Pigott-Smith and Eileen Atkins made for a great Darko Kerim/Rosa Klebb.

Toby Stephens is a rubbish Bond. Way too smug.

It's not too bad, the voice actors do their bit, a couple seem to edge into Goon Show territory but nothing too bad (Kronsteen good of a moderate bunch). Like Stephens, a little forced at first and a bit much but not bad at all. Grating is the snippets of Arnoldesque music and the much tried Stephens-on-radio kissing as heard in various Marlowe adapatations. Thumb up.

Did they ever bring this one out on CD like they said they would, I wonder? Missed this radio play.
