Storyline

In London, 1938, Ian Fleming is a dissolute playboy, eclipsed by his dead war hero father and successful brother. While propping up the bar at a jazz club, he meets Ann O'Neill, an alluring socialite. Unlike many of his conquests, Ann is more than a match for him. She already has a husband and a lover, Esmond Rothermere. Fleming finds solace in the arms of a beautiful dispatch rider named Muriel. Following a frosty morning-after encounter with Muriel, Fleming's domineering mother secures him a job assisting Naval Intelligence's Admiral John Godfrey. He quickly incurs Godfrey's wrath when he cooks up an unorthodox scheme to get information from two captured German submariners. However, Fleming's valuable findings make it apparent that an imaginative approach could be just what the war effort requires. Written by BBC America

Trivia

The martini Fleming orders is a variation of the Vesper, a drink that was later invented by his character James Bond in the novel Casino Royale. The martini is only missing a "large thin slice of lemon peel." See more »

Goofs

When Commander Fleming first addresses his Naval Intelligence staff, the map of Europe on the wall behind him shows the peninsula of Istria as part of Yugoslavia. In 1939, it was still part of Italy, as it had been since 1919, and remained so until after the war. See more »

Ian Fleming: He's not me.
Ann O'Neill: You as you would like to be. Your fantasy. Is that who he is?
