Starring Dominic Cooper, this action-packed drama tells the real story of Ian Fleming, the man who created James Bond. London, 1939: Ian Fleming is an irresponsible playboy living in the shadow of his dead war hero father, his successful author brother and his domineering mother. When the Second World War breaks out, Ian suddenly finds himself with a chance to shine - to prove his worth - with a job in Naval Intelligence. At first, Ian is inclined to treat his new job as a big adventure but, as the shocking consequences and challenges of war become ever clearer to him, he begins to learn where his real talents lie. Packed with lust, romance, humor, jeopardy and explosive action - and set in Britain, France, Germany and Jamaica - this is the fascinating story of the man whose own life and adventures were the inspiration for one of the most iconic spies in modern literature - James Bond.

Really, Really Good!
Great plot, good acting...
An Absolute Necessity for any 007 fan
the acting, costumes, backdrops are so vivid & accurate...this is entertaining for anyone (don't have to be a Bond fan). The action and drama are done with very accomplished acting & writing.
Very very promising. The set, the actors and the costumes all come together at the start of WW2
And if the rest of the series is as good as this one, we will have a fine time watching one of the best British accounts on how Churchill together with the brits saved the day!
