Barbara Bach and Roger Moore, stars of the James Bond film 'The Spy Who Loved Me'

With No Time to Die fever ramping up this week, I sat down to watch one of my favourite Bond films. The Spy Who Loved Me has everything: Roger Moore’s playful depiction of 007; Barbara Bach’s luminous KGB agent; Richard Kiel’s turn as Jaws; a series of brilliant stunts, including that ski jump; Marvin Hamlisch’s campy disco score and Carly Simon’s now-classic theme song, Nobody Does it Better.

I hit play just after 8pm and three hours later I was still only a third of the way into the movie. As is so often the case, I had the best of intentions to watch a film in its entirety in one sitting, but I got distracted by texts, emails, Twitter rants, checking football scores; toilet visits and copious cups of tea. The latter two may be related.
