How do the films most faithful to Fleming stack up against the best original adventures? 

This episode of 'James Bond & Friends' is hosted by James Page with David Leigh, Bill Koenig, and Joseph Darlington.

The panel selects their favourite film from the franchise that is closest to the Ian Fleming source material and - conversely - picks out their best wholly original adventure and we see how the two shortlists compare against each other in a theoretical boxset battle. Along the way, we credit Connery for his commitment, deep dive into a wasted title, discover a bargain book shop, and relive a white knuckle drive that only a true Bond fan would endure.
