    Just learned, while on TVTropes, that on ITV's adaptation of A Caribbean Mystery, Miss Marple meets Ian Fleming (played by Jeremy Crutchley) and... James Bond (Played by... Charlie Higson). BTW, it's James Bond the ornithologist, not James Bond the secret agent.

    That's funny as Agatha Christie had a character called James Bond in her short story 'The Rajah's Emerald'.

    Oh yes I remember that one! I wonder if there's an adaptation of it.

    I don't believe so, no. And perhaps an adaptation of Christie's short story 'The Rajah's Emerald' today featuring a character called "James Bond" (albeit many years before Fleming wrote Casino Royale in 1952) might well be problematic given the proactive nature of EON's lawyers. It might be best leaving well alone, considering the story is a standalone not featuring a series character like, say, Poirot or Miss Marple.

    So it was adapted in some form? I stand corrected!

    No. That was a TV series from the 80s, which adaptaed ten short stories from the queen of crime : A few Parker Pyne ones, and others from The listerdale Mystery. So, a TV adaptation, in a similar TV series, could still be a possibility.

    So, was 'The Rajah's Emerald' one of the stories adapted then? I've not seen that series, unfortunately, though I vaguely think I've heard of it.

    No. "The Rajah's Emerald" has, to the best of my knowledge, never been adapted on screen. The short stories that were filmed (and aired in 1982 on ITV) are :

    The Case of the Middle-Aged Wife

    In a Glass Darkly

    The Girl in the Train

    The Fourth Man

    The Case of the Discontented Soldier

    Magnolia Blossom

    The Mystery of the Blue Jar

    The Red Signal

    Jane in Search of a Job

    The Manhood of Edward Robinson

    Here's the credits for the series :



    And did you know there was an anime series based on Poirot and Marple ?

    Very nice credits there, @Gerard! I'll have to try to track that series down.

    I didn't think that 'The Rajah's Emerald' was ever adapted for TV or radio but I'm by non means an Agatha Christie expert! Perhaps an audio book of the short story collections the story appears in exists though? However, if it does, that's not really an adaptation per se.

    They could change the name. Although the sole interest of the short story by insight IS the name of the protagonist.

    That's true. They could change the name. And, in fact, EON might insist on it, given how much their try to protect their brand.

    Then you have a really boring story filled with very old clichés and flat characters. I'll say it again it's only interesting because of the name of the protagonist.

    Take a look at the following photograph from Mike Ripley's website:

    LEGENDS2.jpg

    "The line-up of these usual suspects is, to say the least, impressive.
    [Back row, left to right:] Ted Allbeury, Frederick Forsyth, John Gardner, Julian Symons, Miles Tripp (aka John Michael Brett), Gavin Lyall and Kingsley Amis (aka Robert Markham). [Middle row:] David Cornwell (John Le Carré), Eric Ambler and Lionel Davidson. [Front row:] Anthony Price, H.R.F. (Harry) Keating and Len Deighton.

    "The occasion was the 75th birthday of Eric Ambler, to whom all British thriller writers owe a debt, and a ‘surprise’ birthday lunch (it is rumoured that a ‘mole’ tipped off Eric beforehand) thrown by fellow writers at the Savoy in 1984."

    Yes, I saw that photograph on the Spybrary Podcast Facebook discussion group recently. It's a very interesting photograph featuring two Bond continuation authors together (John Gardner and Kingsley Amis) as well as many other famous thriller writers. It's of especial personal interest to me as back in 2007 I wrote an article on this meeting between Gardner and Amis at the Savoy, which now features on my blog. This newly unearthed photograph makes a nice visual accompaniment to my article:

    Out of the authors in the photo above, I've only read books by John Le Carré. I really need to check out the works by the other authors too, but wouldn't know where to start!

    Of the authors above I would of course recommend that you start with John Gardner's James Bond continuation novels. Or Kingsley Amis' Colonel Sun (1968). ;)

    Not surprised by that suggestion! ;-)
    I'm also interested in checking out Len Deighton's work – especially The IPCRESS File and its sequels. I'm a huge fan of the Harry Palmer films.

    Also, this one!

    Yes, I love the Harry Palmer films too. And I have that cookery book too. I got it when it was reissued in, I think, 2009. Len Deighton celebrated his 90th birthday in February 2019.

    Right now, I'm continuing my reading of the Tob Peters Mysteries by Stuart Kaminsky. I'm at the beginning of Dancing in the Dark, which sees our down on the luck private eye help Fred Astaire. Here's an article about the series :

    https://www.mysteryscenemag.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2957:toby-peters-over-hollywood&catid=38:profile&Itemid=191

    Of the writers on the photo, I've read John Gardner (yes, the Bond continuation novels, but also the Secret Generations trilogy -the first one is highly recommanded- and the first two Liquidator novels), Frederick Forsyth (from Day of the Jackal to Icon), Kingsley Amis (Colonel Sun), John Le Carré (the Smiley trilogy) and Eric Ambler (The Schirmer Inheritance, when it was serialized in a TV programme my parents bought every week).

    Any recipes you'd recommend? :-D

    I also wonder, has Len Deighton done any recent interviews? I remember reading an interesting one years ago (I think it was a site dedicated to his work, if I'm not mistaken).

    I think Rob Mallows' excellent The Deighton Dossier website and blog is the one you are referring to, @Torgeirtrap. It has had an interesting series of interviews with Mr Deighton over the years.

    I was thinking of The ABC Murders starring John Malkovich as Poirot earlier today. Do we know if he's likely to reprise this role, or was it a one-off?
