Publication of MI6 Confidential, issue 21, volume 7. A special issue dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Octopussy.

MI6 Confidential, the full-colour magazine celebrating the world of James Bond 007, returns with its twenty-first issue, REMEMBERING OCTOPUSSY.

Thirty years ago 007 roared onto our screens in Roger Moore’s sixth 007 adventure, Octopussy (1983). Time has flown by since the release of this unsung hero of the Bond canon, and accordingly, the magazine sought out dozens of cast and crew members to reflect on this intricate and undeniably exotic Bond classic.

This issue features in-depth, exclusive discussions with Octopussy's primary cast and crew – notably director John Glen, co-star Maud Adams, villain Kabir Bedi, and a crew roundtable that includes Peter Lamont, Arthur Wooster, and more! To top it off, there are contributions from Sir Roger Moore, Vijay Amritraj, Kristina Wayborn, and the wonderful supporting cast of Bond’s lucky 13th adventure.

Articles in this issue:
• Exclusive foreword by Sir Roger Moore
• Tip Of The Tentacle - The evolution of the "Octopussy" screenplay (by Matthew Field)
• All In A Day's Work - Director John Glen on scripting, casting and location scouting
• Forever Bonded - Two-time co-star Maud Adams on the Bond girl legacy
• Behind The Camera - Bond alumni share memories from the pre- and post-production (by Ben Williams)
From Sweden With Love - Kristina Wayborn reveals a cheeky story or two from the set
• Silent No Longer - Kabir Bedi recalls facing off against 007 in his native India (by Ben Williams)
• Remembering Octopussy - Cast and crew celebrate 30 years of Bond’s 13th adventure
• The Bond Connection - When U.N.C.L.E. returned after 15 years off the air
