There was going to be a Chinese Secret Service Q character in this scene but it was decided to drop that idea.

Bond's reaction to the keyboard. What's happened to the First he took at Cambridge in Oriental Languages (YOLT)?

The Stealth Boat reminds me of the HSS Voyager, a Catermeran ferry vessel. Only travelled on her once, but felt very 007, for a civilian ship.

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

Gorgeous scenery and photography

Music “Kowloon Bay”

I certainly think it works better having Lin working alone, acting has her own Q.

Speaking a language and writing one can be very different. Maybe that’s where Bond’s hesitation came from?

Fantastic set work for the stealth boat!

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

Back to Phuket, in the vicinity of James Bond Island. Also, it feels, here, like YOLT - exploring the coves - as well as TMWTGG (the junk) and TSWLM (the verbal by-play between 'detente' allies attracted to each other)

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

Re: AJB live commentary on TND

For me a shortcoming of the production design of the Stealth Ship interior is that it lacks the hyper-real 'wow' impact that a Ken Adam set would have had. It's techno and steely but lacks an in-your-face quality.
