^ Oooo so maybe this is the bit that goes back to M's past? Some Dench/ McCory bad brew? I do like the idea of Fiennes being M, but why go back to a the proverbial old white guy? I'd love for the next M to be a woman again or Colin Salmon. Wow, it would be neat if M were younger than Bond, some sort of security wiz, or at least someone slightly younger or chosen over Bond creating resentment. Although frankly, it might be nice to see what would happen if Bond were ever promoted, if briefly.
I think then we're also back to Harris possibly becoming Moneypenny. If she is a good action equal agent in this film, why couldn't she be promoted to M's secretary? I know that sounds like a bad fem thing, secretary and all, but it is a very high position. I would so love to see some Naval uniforms and rank establishments for this one, and a tossing of that naval hat!
