A spot of weekend Bond-age (radio)

Spy fiction fans, get ready for a treat! From Russia With Love is the Saturday Drama this weekend on Radio 4. The cast list alone should give you an idea of what to expect: John Sessions as the General, Mark Gatiss as Kronsteen and Julian Sands as M. I'm most excited of all by the actor who is playing the star role, as James Bond is being played by Toby Stephens, who voiced the spectacularly good Raymond Chandler adaptations on Radio 4 last year. He's also previously played Bond in radio versions of Dr No and Goldfinger, and on the telly played Kim Philby in Cambridge Spies.

At least if we're rained in all Saturday this weekend, there's something to look forward to!
