For Your Ears Only – David Tennant is James Bond

The actor is one of 12 British stars narrating Ian Fleming's 007 adventures - but who would make the best Bond?


Former Doctor Who star David Tennant is tackling another British cultural icon as he lends his voice to a new version of James Bond adventure On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.


Tennant is one of a dozen actors reading Ian Fleming’s Bond novels for 007 Reloaded, a series of audio books set for relase in September.

Also involved are Homeland’s Damian Lewis, Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville and Toby Stephens, who played the part of Bond villain Gustav Graves in 007 movie Die Another Day.

Kenneth Branagh, Jason Isaacs, Bill Nighy, Dan Stevens, Rory Kinnear, Hugh Quarshie and Martin Jarvis will also each record a new unabridged recording of one of Fleming’s tales, with Rosamund Pike the only female to voice one of the spy adventures.
