Bond? Wearing a lifejacket? I knew then that Elf & Safety had even gotten the better of the licenced killer. Did his Double O monica now refer to an interest in Hornby model trains? Who knows, but Daniel Craig is not Bond, he is Geordie, the mental one from the fabulous TV series, Our Friends in the North.
Daniel Craig had the part of Geordie made for him; a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a meta character. His descent from chump to the criminal underworld and thence to the gutter was heart-rending. For me, Daniel Craig cannot be anyone other than Geordie.
FYI, My favourite Bond was and is Roger Moore. Sure he played it for laughs, but he got the best birds and the best cars.
