Dossier #28: Moonraker
James and Alex are reunited with friend of the show Gez to discuss what is unquestionably the daftest entry in the entire series (though not necessarily the worst). Recording in our guest's London-based Bond Villian-style headquarters, we discuss Roger Moore's fourth Bond outing in extensive detail: from the opening parachute sequence to the lengthy and often laughable space sequences that make up the finale. Along the way, we touch on why Drax pretends to play piano, how much thought went into the Venice Coffin Boat of Death, Q's designs for his first fishing boat and why in-flight magazines might be the secret of Bond's success. And, of course, the hover gondola. As always, our episodes can be found at bondbeyodpod.tumblr.com.
