    • Chris Wright

      Hi Karl, thanks for getting in touch! Yeah I think Newman definitely did a solid job. He definitely deserves a second crack of the whip and I can’t wait! 🙂 Cheers – Chris

  • Mark Dutton

    Fantastic show as always boys…… M would be proud lol

    • Chris Wright

      Cheers Mark! As high an honour as can be bestowed! 🙂

  • Brian Maxim

    Serra’s “Ladies First” is finally something that you two
    proper disagree on! The moment must be
    marked in JBR history….but it is bloody awful music!

    • Chris Wright

      Haha… well there had to be something! I know I’m pretty much in the minority when it comes to this music cue but I think it’s good fun and for me it’s certainly not the worst music cue on the soundtrack. Thanks Brian!

  • Baldwin Collins

    I must agree with chris. the late john barry’s score for ‘the living daylights’ is probably barry’s best work. I personally love the title song. by the group ‘ha ha they worked very well with barry’s final bond score.

  • Baldwin Collins

    I very much like tom Arnold’s score’s. hope he return’s to the franchise
    in the near future.

  • Marty O’Dwyer

    Love the Shanghai Drive track in Skyfall.

  • Jon Allen

    Just listened to podcast (yes I’m catching up) how can we get hold of the Q The music cd or download not fussed. Any ideas have tried their website and Amazon but couldn’t find it.

    • Warren Ringham

    I thought of another villain who had a take on “I’ve been expecting you, Mr. Bond.” In Diamonds Are Forever when bond falls onto Willard Whyte’s toilet, Blofeld says (In Willard’s voice), ” Howdy, son. We’ve been expectin’ you.”
