John Cleese has form in the James Bond movies. He ascended to the role of Q in Die Another Day, and was originally expected to return to the part. However, Pierce Brosnan departed the world of Bond, the reboot came in, Daniel Craig got the role, and things went back to the start for Bond. Only now has Ben Whishaw been introduced as the new Q.

Billy Wilder said that the best director is one you don't see, that if the thing you notice in any given scene is how beautifully it's shot then the director hasn't done his job, because he's making you look at him not the story. Mr Wilder had a point - Mr Wilder always had a point - but there is a counter-argument that gorgeous imagery can make a film, if it sucks you into something magical and transports you somewhere.

007 lists resurrection amongst his hobbies, but speculation is our game today. Your own ideal fantasy James Bond film probably depends on what sort of Bond you're into. If you like serious Bond, you probably consider it a crying shame that Timothy Dalton didn't get to make at least one more film. A fair proportion of the fandom consider Never Say Never Again to be one of the worst of the series, so for them, rolling the dice on a 1976 production with a different actor and a more exciting script would have been worth it.

Believed to be dead, Bond takes a little time off, recuperating in a beachfront shack on Koca Calis Beach, at Fethiye, a coastal town in the southwest of Turkey. Fethiye is a popular tourist venue, but don't go looking to play scorpion-themed drinking games. The bar was constructed for the film and immediately dismantled.
