Mabey Bond looks scruffy because he's just escaped from Jigsaw, hence the grubby toilet.  ajb007/shifty

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

Well, it looks like scene 45 takes place in a pretty grungy bathroom. Has Craig's Bond come full circle?

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

Perhaps in the last 4 years Bond has been made redundant from m16 due to govermentcutbacks and is working as a toilet cleaner
hense the shoddy appearance and this toilet is his next task.

Sadly, many people have been made redundant due to the involvement of M16 over the years ....

why else would his trousers be at half mast?

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

There are many phrases that are used to politely (indirectly?) draw someone's attention to a potentially embarrassing aspect of their dress.

Some ask "Cat's died?" when they notice that the bottoms of your trouser legs don't seem hang down as far they are normally expected to be worn.

There are several possible explanations for the origin of this expression:

By saying 'Cat's died?' they are implying that you are deliberately wearing your trousers ...

1.... at 'half-mast', like a flag1 (because your cats have died!), whereas, in reality, they are actually calling indirect attention to the fact that your trousers seem unusually short and that you may wish to correct this 'dress malfunction' sometime!
2.... with their hems further up from the ground because ... your your cat used to catch all the mice, but now your cat is dead, the mice abound and could run up your trouser leg, given the chance.

Used to hear that term regularly at school - not so much when you get to the age that everyone around you has stopped growing out of their trousers, but it's a term definitely used in the west coast of Scotland.

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

Growing up in my part of the US, abnormally short pant legs were called out with references to "floods" or "flooding."  Then the Eighties came around and it was sometimes considered fashionable, e.g., Michael Jackson, the Thompson Twins, etc.  On a related note, like news anchors who wear anything comfortable below the waistline, I vaguely remember seeing a photo of Connery wearing shorts with a fully suited torso.

P.S. I enjoy occasionally learning UK jargon on this board, like the dog's danglies, lol.

Funny you should mention that Supes. There's a Sports reporter around here who is known for wearing shorts behind the reporting desk. If you tune in for the first time, you wouldn't know it. But if you've watched him for years, he's actually stood up and made jokes about how the viewing audience can't see what's he's wearing below the waistline.

Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope

Re: Photos of Bond from the set...

Back on topic...

if the production is using Jaguar and Land Rovers - that means Ford are no longer involved (as with the previous 2 films), which could also mean no more Aston Martin and probably does.
Could we see Bond now taking control of a Jaguar?  Maybe the new Jaguar C-X16 or XK at least?

The name's Bond_James_Bond

I don't think they have to be exclusive; the last film had prominent position given to a load of Alfa Romeos, after all. I wouldn't be surprised if an Aston does pop up; although I also wouldn't be surprised if Bond doesn't have a car at all.

Doubt he'll get the C-X16, gorgeous though it is. I don't think it's far enough down the line for that just yet, unless it's a fleeting appearance. They've got to think up a nicer name, yet!

The deal doesn't rely on Ford. It has happened with and without Ford. Aston Martin is very likely to be back given how big the brand association has gotten.
