By MI6 Staff
Toby Stephens returns to play James Bond once again for BBC Radio 4's latest adaptation of the classic Ian Fleming adventure 'Moonraker.'
Martin Jarvis directs this surprisingly up-to-date, all-star guided missile drama.
It's 1954 and British patriot Sir Hugo Drax (Samuel West) has built an atomic rocket, Moonraker, vital to Britain's defences. It's ready for a trial launch. But after a double-murder, James Bond (Toby Stephens) goes undercover at Moonraker's secret base. He and agent Gala Brand (Katherine Kingsley) discover possible treachery. Can they prevent a catastrophe?
Archie Scottney's compelling dramatization of Ian Fleming's novel is Jarvis and Ayres' seventh Bond on Radio 4. Janie Dee, John Standing and Julian Sands return as Moneypenny, M and Q. Jared Harris is Head of Special Branch, Patricia Hodge a hearty missile expert, Ian Ogilvy a BBC man, and Nigel Anthony is a Peter Lorre-inspired Krebs.
'Moonraker' will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday 31st March 2018 at 14:30 GMT.
