Ah, Radio Times readers, we’ve been expecting you…


You see, in this week’s issue of the magazine we’ve exercised our licence to thrill and served up a James Bond exclusive that’ll knock your socks off. We’ve sent our intrepid cinema sleuth Barry Norman undercover to meet the female mastermind behind 007, producer Barbara Broccoli, who reminds us that she’s the only woman who can put the world’s most famous secret agent in his place.

Plus, Top Gear’s Richard Hammond gives his verdict on the best ever Bond cars and we reveal who Radio Times readers rate as the best actor ever to order his martini shaken, not stirred.

TV naturalist Chris Packham takes us on a trip into the heart of a glacier to demonstrate the slow death of the Arctic icecap as never seen before, Victoria Pendleton serves up the latest entry in her Strictly diary and wonders where her cyclist’s backside has gone, and former Doctor Who mastermind Russell T Davies introduces us to his latest out-of-this-world TV show: Wizards vs Aliens.

Former Countdown queen Carol Vorderman opens up about looks, love and stories of everyday heroism, football’s miracle man Fabrice Muamba celebrates playing again in spite of his doctor’s orders, and Education Secretary Michael Gove writes an open letter of apology to his French teacher.

Plus, our columnists are once again out in force:  Sarah Millican celebrates the return of Junior Bake Off, Andrew Collins talks horror with Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss, Alison Graham wonders why TV’s clever heroines have such turbulent emotional lives and Eddie Mair bemoans some recent difficulties he’s been having while trying to get into the BBC’s New Broadcasting House.
