Set against the permissive society of war-torn London, where the martinis were always flowing and beds always being swapped, the series explores the early life of the charming, enigmatic 007 author. The outbreak of World War II saw the young Fleming working as an unsuccessful stockbroker, with a failed army career behind him and living off his rich family while indulging in the very Bond-esque passions of womanising, alcohol and, erm, erotic literature. It wasn’t until Fleming was forced to join the Naval Intelligence that he found his true calling. Using his mischievous sense of humour, sharp charm and vivid imagination, Fleming was responsible for some of the most outrageously dangerous counter intelligence mission against the Nazis – honing his inspiration for Bond in the process.
