BLOGATHON… Bond returns for an encore for the You Knew My Name: The Bond Not Bond Blogathon


Those James Bond actors return with a view to a thrilling last post…


In a case of never say never again, our favourite sextet(te) come back for one last fling until next year’s shenanigans.



The Bond boys are back for one last day! I woke up in a cold, snowy Finland and discovered two overnight posts, and this morning one post came in time for my morning coffee. So after these both warmed up my wee heart, I’m sorry to tell you that this is definitely the last post. But I will be adding reviews as I get them and a wee shout out to the Craggus for today’s blogathon banner.

Do remember the lovely Gabriela from Pale Writer and I will be returning this time next year for the now annual You Knew My Name: The Bond Not Bond Blogathon. So I’m inviting you all back for this blogathon sequel, but I won’t be accepting your review choices now despite Darlin Husband’s insistence I review Pierce Brosnan’s The Lawnmower Man (1992) sometime next year. And love you to join if you haven’t already.

Now on with those posts on these one time Bonds… and just click on the blue title to get to those fabulous reviews…

Day 3 – where Pierce Brosnan appears in another captivating movie…


Before I go a wee thanks to my Darlin Husband for telling me (this morning) that it’s spelt S-E-X-T-E-T and not S-E-X-T-E-T-T-E  like the Timothy Dalton and Mae West movie. And also thanks to him and my mum for their sterling support or the last few days as I’ve gittered on about the movies and TV appearances for men who were Bond and jfif pictures…

This video is dedicated to (in no particular order) Darlin Husband, my mum, Timothy Dalton – who inspired the blogathon -, the other actors who played Bond, their film roles, their TV characters and co-host Gabriela… and the rest of you to give at least 007 reasons.


Mae West & Timothy Dalton sing “Love Will Keep Us Together”, Andrey Milevskiy

  1. Lol, Gill, thanks for the campiest moment in the blogathon. Timothy Dalton romancing an 80 year old Mae with a Captain and Tennille tune is a gift that keeps on giving!
    Merry merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and safe new year to all.
