On this episode of The James Bond A-Z Podcast hosts Tom Butler and Brendan Duffy are joined by Ajay Chowdhury, the co-author of the acclaimed 800-page Bond biography Some Kind of Hero and spokesperson of the James Bond International Fan Club, to do a deep dive into the story behind 2008's Quantum of Solace, starring Daniel Craig as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007.

The episode covers the story of the follow up to 2006's Casino Royale, which faced an intense production schedule, script problems, and a director change partway through pre-production.

We explore the cast of creatives behind the scenes, the locations used in the movie, and the post-production scramble to get it into cinemas in time.

We also look at the film's legacy from its box office and critical response, to its current standings with with 007 fans around the world.

Ajay Chowdhury is a writer, producer and entertainment lawyer. He is the co-author of SOME KING OF HERO: The Remarkable Story Of The James Bond Films.
