Re: Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes confirmed for Bond 24
Teh Craig era Bond films did seem to be doing a bit of creating the Bond universe or rather re-creating. As you said Moneypenny, M's new office which has echos of the earlier ones.
But Skyfall was certainly a popular movie, Coming in at number 2 for the 2012 box office.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
