Skyfall Writers Spoiler Podcast Special
Purvis & Wade on the tricks of the trade

Skyfall

First, there was Empire's James Bond podcast special, a 90 minute discussion of all things 007. Then there was Empire's Skyfall spoiler special, a three quarters of an hour-long journey through Bond 23's intimate plot points. Then there was a 40 minute interview with Sir Roger Moore, all Christmas dinner tips and witty asides. Today, to complete the Bond quartet, here is a 45-minute interview with Skyfall writers Purvis & Wade - arguably the most enlightening of the lot.

For those not in the know, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been EON's in-house scriptwriters for the past five Bond movies, from 1999's The World Is Not Enough (with Bruce Feirstein) to 2012's Skyfall (with John Logan). With their tenure as Bond's pensmiths now at an end - Logan is set to write the next two Craig films alone - they dropped by the Empire Podcast studio to reveal some amazing spoilery secrets about getting 007 on screen in honour of Bond 23's arrival in cinemas over in the US.
