Following on from the last English spy, Johny English, the latest James Bond fails to meet the high comic standard we have come to expect.
Famous stand up comic, Roger Moore, "eyebrow" to his friend, was hard to follow in the most famous role since tintin. Synonymous with commedic greats such as George lazerie, James Bond has always led the way in comedy-fests at the Edinburgh festival.
Until now, the genre has shifted with the employment of a proper actor. Not since the scotch milkman has the English Spy been portrayed in such magnificence.
Now perhaps the English pride can be restored behind our latest hero and leader, Bond James Bond.
In recent developments, David Beckham has been approached to be the next James Bond following Robbie Williams withdrawal due to artistic differences.
