On Her Majesty's Secret Service


Serialisation (1963) On Her Majesty's Secret Service was serialised in the April, May and June 1963 issues of Playboy.[38]

Comic strip (1964–65) Ian Fleming's 1963 novel was adapted as a daily comic strip published in the Daily Express newspaper, and syndicated worldwide; the strip ran for nearly a year, from 29 June 1964 to 17 May 1965. The adaptation was written by Henry Gammidge and illustrated by John McLusky.[39] The strip was reprinted by Titan Books in The James Bond Omnibus Vol. 2, published in 2011.[40]

On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) In 1969 the novel was adapted into the sixth film in the Eon Productions series. It starred George Lazenby in his only appearance of the Bond role.[41] With the films being produced in a different order to the books, the continuity of storylines was broken and the films altered accordingly.[42] Even so, the character of Blofeld was present in the previous film, You Only Live Twice, and he and Bond had met: this previous meeting was ignored for the plot of On Her Majesty's Secret Service.[42]

Radio (2014) In 2014 the novel was adapted for BBC Radio 4's Saturday Drama strand. Toby Stephens, who played Gustav Graves in Die Another Day, portrayed Bond. Joanna Lumley appeared in both the film and radio adaptations of the novel.[43]
