Following last year's Spectre-themed pumpkin, this year I decided to carve another pumpkin inspired by James Bond.
Poor Q. There he is, in No Time To Die, preparing a romantic meal at his London home, when James Bond and Moneypenny appear at the front door. For Q, it seems to be a case of no time to cook.
No Time To Die shows Bond doing something we haven't seen him do since A View To A Kill: cook some food, in this case French-style pancakes or crêpes.
I was fortunate to attend the premiere of No Time To Die, but for me preparations began with a suitably Bondian lunch.
You remember the photos of Daniel Craig's James Bond clutching a brace of red snapper in Jamaica during the filming of No Time To Die? Here's a recipe inspired by that moment.
In September, Bond fans were treated to exciting behind-the-scenes action in Matera in southern Italy as filming on No Time To Die continued. I don't know how long James Bond spends in Matera, but even he has to eat.
Some pretty awesome images of Daniel Craig in James Bond mode emerged over the weekend. One of them pictured him with a spear-gun, while in another he holds a couple of freshly-caught fish - red snapper by the look of 'em, and large ones at that.
The official launch of filming of the next James Bond film returned Ian Fleming's master spy to his birthplace at Goldeneye, formerly Ian Fleming's Jamaican retreat where the Bond novels were written.
