Riel Theatre: Dr. No

7:00pm Tonight Riel Theatre presents a radio adaptation of the classic James Bond story Dr No.

A distinguished cast, headed by Toby Stephens and David Suchet, takes part in this ‘radio movie’ of Ian Fleming’s 1958 novel, dramatised by Hugh Whitemore.

Bond is sent to investigate a strange disappearance on the island of Jamaica, and discovers that the heart of the mystery lies with a sinister recluse known as ‘Dr No’. Another chance to hear this classic Bond adventure — the first in Radio 4’s ongoing all-star series.
