Goldfinger was a radio drama adaptation of Ian Fleming's 1959 novel that first aired on April 3, 2010 on the BBC's main spoken-word channel, Radio 4. It was the second of five new James Bond radio plays produced by the station and starred Toby Stephens as the titular character for the second time.


"Auric Goldfinger is not only a cheat at canasta and golf, he's also an international criminal on a massive scale. His obsession: gold. James Bond is charged by the Bank of England and MI5 to discover what Goldfinger is actually doing with his vast hoards of gold. Is he somehow connected with SMERSH - the feared soviet spy-killing organisation? When 007 becomes an undercover member of Goldfinger's team he soon learns that the madman's plans are more grandiose than even 'M' could possibly have imagined. Amazingly, robbing Fort Knox is on the agenda - and mass murder..."
