A distinguished cast celebrate the Centenary of Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, in Hugh Whitemore’s new dramatisation of Ian Fleming's Dr. No in a Jarvis and Ayres Production for BBC Radio 4.

James Bond, recovering from the after effects of his last assignment, is given what seems, at first, an easy job on his next case. ‘M’, his secret service boss, sends him to Jamaica to investigate the mysterious disappearance of one of their colleagues.

With the assistance of an old friend, Cayman Islander Quarrel, Bond finds that the heart of the mystery lies with a sinister recluse, Dr No. Before long Bond and Honey Rider, his beautiful and vulnerable Girl Friday, come face to face with this extraordinary creature, half Chinese, half German. Soon they are fighting for their lives in a murderous game of Dr No’s choosing.
