The theme: James Bond and some of those who have portrayed him on the screen.

Ian Fleming's image of James Bond; commissioned to aid the Daily Express comic strip artists

Sean CONNERY, David NIVEN, George LAZENBY, Roger MOORE, Timothy DALTON, Pierce BROSNAN and Daniel CRAIG, have all played JAMES BOND in films.

Appeared as Crossword 1815 in the November 2017 edition of 1 Across.

Some feedback from solvers:

Plenty of write-ins once the theme was revealed. Clues were straightforwardly signalled; 22d is neat. 

A good workout with an Azed feel - barred grid and some very obscure words. But very fair and a personal touch on the unglued lights since in one of my roles (director of the Scottish International Education Turst) I can claim that 1d is my ‘boss’. 

Somehow I got 2/3 of this puzzle completed before getting the theme. Once all the Bonds were in only a few were left. I enjoyed islander envy snorer. Very impressed at the grid construction.
