Potential Spoiler: M's (Judi) Real Name Easter Egg

Saw this on reddit. If you haven't watch Skyfall yet, maybe you shouldn't take a look. Pretty solid easter egg.

    That was only ever in the novelisations. But as the Brosnan-era M is necessarily a different character to the Craig-era M, both names could still stand.

    Agreed. Obviously there is room to change the name because it isn't like one M met both Brosnan and Craig. I think they surely had the chance to recast M, so just treat it like they did go through the next M options and happened to have the same actress choice for the next iteration in charge of MI6.

    I have to say, I find the name they chose in SkyFall quite fitting.
