Welcome back to another edition of Trolley Trouble. This week, we take a look at the complex train sequence from Octopussy.
Welcome to another edition of Unsung 00 hero. This week we take a look at the original matriarch of the 007 franchise, Dana Broccoli.
For the third instalment in Trolley Trouble, the blog will take a slightly different perspective, predominantly by merging two examples of different vehicular carnage that culminate in a big bloody locomotive blowing up in a heap of flames. Fancy a drive around St Petersburg in a tank?
In essence, if Barbara and Michael were indeed to sell once the dust settles on Bond 25, my feelings will be twofold
Maybe it was just the circumstances under which I watched it (the very start of the long Christmas weekend, relieved that work was behind me), but revisiting it was stunningly effortless. It had me hook, line and sinker 30 seconds in.

The first two entries, DR and FRWL, had met considerable recognition worldwide (Russia’s budget was doubled from that of DN given how well the first turned out), but several factors led to GF becoming, for lack of better term, the gold standard of Bond films.
For the second entry in the Trolley Trouble series, the blog takes a look at another iconic, unforgettable near-death experience for 007 whilst riding the train: his tussle with Jaws in TSWLM.
