Some authors write their protagonists as wishful flights of fancy, but Ian Fleming was able to use his life experience working in British Naval Intelligence and as a journalist to create one of the coolest and most memorable characters in fiction, James Bond.  It’s true that Bond is a darker character in Fleming’s novels, but there are still the trademarks that made him popular, and some of those traits came from the author’s life.  Now that life has received the biopic treatment in Sky Atlantic’s four-part miniseries, Fleming.  This is different from Duncan Jones‘ biopic, which seems to be stuck in development hell while the director turns his attention to World of Warcraft.  Dominic Cooper plays the author, and looks to be an inspired choice.

The mini-series co-stars Lara Pulver (Da Vinci’s Demons) as Ann O’Neill, “the love of his life” according to Fleming’s official bio.  No air date has been announced.
