About the Author

My name is Biddulph, Edward Biddulph, and I’ve been a James Bond fan for a very long time. My earliest memory of James Bond is watching Goldfinger on the television when I was a nipper (aged 6 or 7, maybe). I graduated to the books aged about 11 or 12 (I still have the first copies I read on my bookshelf – Book Club editions of The Spy Who Loved Me and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) and I’ve been a devoted fan of the books and the films ever since.

Since 2010, I have been running the ‘James Bond memes’ blog. I’m the author of the Bond-inspired cookbook, Licence to Cook, and I have contributed to various Bond-related websites and magazines, as well as academic publications (see below).

As for my favourite Bond actor, I know it sounds like a cop-out, but I like them all. All the actors have brought something new and exciting to the role. That said, I have a soft spot for Roger Moore and Daniel Craig is awesome. What about my favourite film? That’s easy – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. It’s faithful to Fleming and still looks epic.
