Day 5 of 30 Days of SPECTRE!
Today it’s time to talk Q. There’s no doubt Ben Whishaw has huge shoes to fill after Desmond Llewelyn’s final appearance in 1999, so does he pull it off?
With key scenes inside Q’s lab and played out in the field, Q gets a lot more screen time than usual in SPECTRE. So, let’s find out if he has what it takes to carry the Q torch.

Great stuff, guys. Will you do an episode on the theme song? I think the Craig era song lyrics are more related to the storyline than ever before. Would love to hear your take on that.
We already did one. Take a look between episodes 53 and 54 😉
Remember in ”licence to kill” bond went rogue. which brought Q and bond’s
Friendship was formed. with Q secretly helping bond unofficially out in the field.However i haven’t seen ”spectre” yet. but i wasn’t impressed with the new Q in ”SkyFall’
You will love him in SPECTRE Baldwin. The scenes between Q and Bond are one of the highlights in the film!
thanks for the heads-up on Q
I agree with you tom. Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes will return. especially when ”spectre” is a world-wide success.
lovely stuff, guys. Thanks! Agreed Q is MUCH better in SPECTRE than Skyfall. Though logically..his field trip in this one stretches credibility, even in a fantasy..though not half as much as ‘that’ twist. Aside from said twist, I love SPECTRE and cannot get enough coverage of it so thank you for enhancing the day. Would leave a Bottle of Bollinger and a mobile but that would be copying someone else..J
Haha… glad you enjoyed the film and our 30 Days of SPECTRE Anthony! We appreciate the thought… although, our fridge is pretty stocked with Bollinger at the moment! 😉
Here are some of my pictures of the Mexico City premiere. The skeletons were the actual ones used in SPECTRE (the one with the cigar opens the film).
Great pics Gerardo!! Love the one with the skeleton! 🙂
I’ve always wondered how it can be that Bond is always shown driving his new car in a foreign city right after the scene where Q presents him with it in the M16 quarters in London. Did Timothy Dalton drive to Bratislavia on the Vantage? Did Brosnan drive to Iceland on the Vanquish? In no other film is this more puzzling than in SPECTRE where Bond goes rogue and yet can be found driving the DB10 he “borrowed” in Rome when in real life it would probably take him the 48 hour head start that Q gave him to arrive there.
He my have flown it over a la the DB5 in Goldfinger! 🙂
That was my first thought as well but remmember, he stole this one car.
2 hours and counting…. decided to hit the “sneak preview” show tonight. 7pm Central U.S. time
‘If it wasn’t for me, you would have been dead long ago’ – ‘Q’ to Bond in Licence to Kill
If we keep going with ‘Only Mendes’ mantra as Director then 2019 will be the next movie. If we get another person to helm it then maybe 2017. I think SPECTRE ties up the Mendes era. Let’s get somebody who doesn’t do Shaky action and more importantly David Arnold needs to return.
