I've been saying this since SF. They've only shown one side of London in these last two films.
Bond's an MI6 agent - they work abroad, MI5 work 'from home', bringing Bond on home turf once (Skyfall movie - Moonraker book) worked, but twice in two movies, no thanks.
I wonder though if they shot some scenes for a 2nd film. :-/

For me, the way that SP concluded, it could go either one of two ways:
A.) The film doesn't make that much/receives poor reviews, so Mendes and Craig leave together and let a new director and actor take over for a brand new story in a few years.
B.) It performs very well at the box office/is received remotely well, and Mendes and Craig return to continue the wrath of SPECTRE.
After SP, Craig is 3-1 for me, which is a wonderful track record. He's ending on a high note if SP is his last, but I'd enjoy seeing him go all out again and do one more before it's too late.
But usually the Bond girls do vanish by the next film, so wouldn't that make the former more cliche? :-??
And yes, it's more for what DaltonCraig007 said for me, about Craig getting closer to matching the two Bond giants in Connery and Moore.
Having said that, I wouldn't be unhappy if he decided to call it quits either (of course it would depend on who they choose as his replacement though) since he seems to have wrapped up 'his story' quite nicely in SP.
Also, I've decided I want Mendes gone, so if that means DC leaving too, I'm ok with that.
He doesn't need too. He was a better Bond than Brosnan after CR alone anyway.
And that was all he deserved.
It was certainly better than Die Another Day. And had one of the Best Bond game soundtracks ever. :D
I'd rather the Craig films move further away from people from the Brosnan era. It would be rather a retrograde step.
RE: Campbell - I think he did a better job on CR than on GE, & they were both suitably different, yet decent, imho. So I wouldn't mind him coming back because I'm pretty sure he'd know what to do a third time and give us something fresh and different again (he is actually essential if we are going to a new Bond actor). A Campbell trilogy to equal the Young/Gilbert ones would be great for Bond. It's not going to happen though. I'm sure of it.
I do thank Sam for his services. Made a couple of well received big box office successes.
