Radio Times magazine: Who is the greatest ever James Bond?

Plus, Doctor Who on-set exclusive, Armando Iannucci on satire, recipes from Gordon Ramsay, Team GB's London 2012 memories, Sheridan Smith and much, much more...


We’re attempting to resolve one of the fiercest debates in cinema history in this week’s Radio Times: who is the greatest ever James Bond?  And, as there’s a good case to be made for awarding the title to every incarnation of 007 from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig, we’ve enlisted some expert help in the forms of film buffs Barry Norman, Mark Kermode, Simon Mayo and Andrew Collins to settle the matter once and for all.


Plus, we’re also giving you the chance to win each and every Bond film on Blu-ray! All you have to do is tell us your favourite Bond and the reasons you like him, and you could win Bond 50, a newly-released special commemorative box set containing all 22 films from Dr No to Quantum of Solace.

Also this week:

We’ve got a Doctor Who on-set exclusive for you with some exclusive photos of Matt Smtih riding a dinosaur, The Thick of It creator Armando Iannucci joins us to reflect on satire, politics and accepting an OBE, Sheridan Smith’s on hand to talk about her successes in theatre, film and TV, and Bruce Springsteen’s guitarist Steven Van Zant discusses his starring role in Norwegian mob drama Lillyhammer.

Gordon Ramsay shares two mouth-watering savoury recipes ahead of his new Channel 4 cookery series, the families of Team GB’s gold medallists relive their memories of London 2012, and BBC presenter Reggie Yates explains why he doesn’t enjoy googling himself.
