MI6 Confidential - Issue #12
10th November 2011

The waiting is over. James Bond 23 is in production. "Skyfall" is coming... MI6 Confidential attended the official press conference in London to gather the intel and soak up the atmosphere. As well as the 50th anniversary in 2012, "Skyfall" will mark the longest gap between 007 adventures without a change of actor in the leading role. Will the extra time crafting the script, organizing the crew, scouting the locations and assembling the cast pay off?

Rounding out Issue #12 of MI6 Confidential - the James Bond magazine - is an analysis of "The Spy Who Loved Me" script history, a look at the publicity hype of "Diamonds Are Forever" in the USA, and how Kingsley Amis' fascination with 007 lead to his one-off continuation novel 'Colonel Sun'.
