Lucy Fleming, the niece of Ian Fleming, interviewed David Tennant about his voice work for the audio edition of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again.
"If someone said that you could drive their fabulous 23 litre vintage racing car out for a spin, wouldn't you be nervous? But wouldn't you also say ... yes please."
Ian Fleming is best known for creating the very, very famous spy James Bond, secret agent 007. He wrote fourteen books about James Bond with the well-known titles such as Casino Royale, From Russia with Love, Dr. No and Goldfinger.
The very first film I saw in the cinema was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I remember two things about the occasion – one was that we were taken to the pick ’n’ mix in Woolies and actually allowed to choose our own sweets (I went for Cherry Lips).
The eagerly awaited new stand-alone novel from multi-award-winning author and scriptwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce.
