The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

Modesty Blaise Series 1


by: Peter O'Donnell

Publication date: 2014-06-16

Topics: BBC Radio Drama, Thriller, 15 Minute Theatre

Language: English

Based on the novel "Modesty Blaise: A Taste for Death".

Modesty Blaise started off as a 1960s strip cartoon, though was later developed into novels and three films. Modesty Blaise is a wealthy, very curvaceous young woman of a mysterious background who, although at times a criminal, also works sometimes for the British Secret Service under instructions from Sir Gerald Tarrant.

In this story, the subject of the first novel, a British agent is found dead in suspicious circumstances. Now rumours are circulating of a plot to steal a huge consignment of diamonds belonging to a Middle Eastern Sheikh. The diamonds are part of a deal to secure oil for Britain and Sir Gerald Tarrant, head of a British secret service organisation, needs some specialist help to prevent the plot being carried out. He decides to 'set a thief to catch a thief' and persuades former criminal Modesty Blaise (played by an actress with surely the sexiest voice on radio) to come out of retirement, along with her right-hand man Willie Garvin.

For the pedants out there (you know who you are), this is the second series to be broadcast, but the first sequentially in the Blaise stories, hence "Series 1".

Modesty Blaise Series 2


by: Peter O'Donnell

Publication date: 2012-12-17

Topics: BBC Radio Drama, Thriller' 15 Minute Theatre

Language: English

Dramatisation of the novel "Modesty Blaise - A Taste For Death".

Sir Gerald Tarrant tempts Modesty out of retirement and into a job involving a young woman with extra sensory powers, an exotic desert location, and a larger than life public school villain, intent on murdering his way to a vast fortune.

Modesty Blaise Series 3


by: Peter O'Donnell

Publication date: 2017-02-13

Topics: BBC Radio Drama, Thriller, 15 Minute Theatre

Modesty invites Sir Gerald Tarrant of British Intelligence to join her for a holiday at the Gorges du Tarn in the South of France. But, after stopping on the cliff road to help two nuns who have broken down, Sir Gerald's car is found smashed to pieces at the bottom of the ravine. It does not take long for Modesty (once more played by Daphne Alexander, an actress with a voice so sexy it should have a health warning attached for dirty old men like me) to realise that Sir Gerald has been kidnapped.

Based on the novel "Modesty Blaise: The Silver Mistress".
