    I wish that we could at least get a novelization of the film script. I think it would be at least a great read. Between this and the Some Kind of Hero's reporting of it.

    That's amazing! Shame I really disliked that season's story arc, what with all the talent in it.

    A very sad matter, that I hope never happens to our beloved Bond. The deconstruction of a known and beloved character just to suit a PC agenda and lobbies - and I'm not talking about a female doctor, I'm ok with that (well, not with Jodie Whittaker, she just doesn't have any range as an actress, IMO) . It's the writing and the stories and the entire production. It's just nonsense nowadays. A bunch of acephalous characters running around, speaking like they were brain dead. A very sad matter, indeed.

    Well, one can always dream of the Doctor returning to form, but right now that seems as likely as getting Dalton to play Bond again - another dream of mine ;)

    I get that with the current 007 franchise that has been slacking of and doing some serious Oscar wank after CR. Doctor Who just needs to get away from the Godlike character he turned into, and Craig should step away from being the Terminator he turned into with Mendes.

    Quite aware of your apreciation for the new Doctor series @SaintMark, well more than many anyway, I have been following your somewhat positive reactions to it, trying to get myself contaminated by some of the positivism. No such luck, I’m afraid. I’m also aware of gour deslike regarding Craig’s take on Bond post CR. Can’t say I don’t understand, although I’m quite apreciative of said oscar wank, as it gave us the likes of Fiennes and some stellar crew members. The terminator part you mention also irks me, to tell you the truth. It’ll come to form one day, again, I hope.

    I have never heard any other Bond actor give Fleming such high praise as Dalton did.

    Great clip, whenever I see Dalton in an off-set interview he always strikes me as a very intelligent person.

    Didn’t he want to be a scientist before being bitten by the acting bug?

    Always loved Dalton. He definitely had that classical man's vibes about him who really meant business. Where are these kinds of actors, nowadays?

    New interview with Dalton about his role in Doom Patrol (with amusing Bond-related quote at the end):
