This week, we discuss Bond's allies in the field, the informants and foreign agents that help him complete his mission.

Chief among these is, of course, Felix Leiter: a character that has appeared to be both comically incompetent and unapologetically heroic - although never in the same film.

We also discuss what we've lovingly come to know as the Not Felixes, ranging from Greek smugglers, Turkish agents, and the elusive other Double-Os.

The Bond & Beyond Review tackles the first of Timothy Dalton's two movies, in which a plot to make money spans over two hours, several countries and some excellent action sequences. A personal favourite of Alex's, hear him and James discuss the film's more unappreciated features as well as its more bizarre inclusions – fat Scouse jailer, anyone?

N.B. We are aware of some audio issues with this episode. We are working on sourcing better equipment and finding an alternative recording location, and we thank you for you patience.
