I like Atkinson, but I don't think audiences could take him seriously as Q.
He's in Never Say Never Again, although he didn't play Q, but another ally of Bond. His character was also played for laughs -- mostly slapstick ones, IIRC. However, if Atkinson were more in the Blackadder mold than the Mr. Bean one, I could see him taken more seriously.

That said, who can argue with Hugh Laurie? He'd be terrific.
