Not the audiobooks, no as I know they are readily available. Audio drama's like the radio plays mentioned above
Speaking of the ones already aired, is there any way that I could get a listen of them, even though not on iPlayer. Would they be available on YouTube do you think?
They are all about 90 minutes long and well worth listening to.
There was a BBC audio drama of YOLT from a long time ago. I think Michael Jayston was 007 that time.
I would love to hear original stories about Bond (preferably produced by Big Finish and their awesome group of writers) starring Timothy Dalton.
Have to agree with @stag that David Suchet's chinese/American accent was very poor. He was the low point of this I thought. He sounded like a cartoon villain rather than a Bond villain.
It's a shame Big Finish have never got anywhere near Bond. Their Doctor Who audio dramas are top notch and I'm sure they'd be a success
Yes, some good audio dramas would fill in the gaps between the movies nicely.
Meant to reply to this part of your post in particular. This would be such a great idea, more stories from Timothy Dalton would be great, don't think we saw enough of his Bond. Plus, we still have all 007 actors here, there's got to be a market for more from them it hasn't there?
I've always wanted to know about the mission that occurs before Dr No and this could be a super way of getting round it. Alas, it seems like it will never happen, however, I will enjoy listening to the BBC Radio plays for now.
@vzok I didn't know about the Michael Jayston Bond drama. I'd like to hear that one.
As for the story I'd most like to hear, well that'd have to be the one where Bonds' Beretta hammed and he spent 6 months in hospital.
I think it was from about 20 years ago. I remember hearing it at the time. Here is a link although someone has edited music into this version, so I don't know what it sounds like now.
I do enjoy these plays. it's such a shame we don't see them released on cd format. I think they'd be very popular among Bond fans, or any fan of audio dramas/playes etc.
That was when Del found the clock that made him rich wasn't it? Michael Jayston around the same time appeared with David Jason in a comedy series called "A Bit Of A Do".
His voice is distinctive and very suitable for audio Bond.
