Speaking to the Evening Standard  (‘Lucy Fleming: If I reveal the James Bond Skyfall plot I might be shot’, 3 October), Fleming revisits the different incaranations of Bond, and recollects some of the key events in her own personal life, and the intertwinning of her life and that of Ian Fleming’s legacy.
