Skyfall director Sam Mendes: James Bond is like Doctor Who 

They’ve both been known to wear bow ties and they’re both (in their own inimitable ways) pretty good with the ladies, but according to Skyfall director Sam Mendes, James Bond and the Doctor have something else in common.
“I mentioned the word in the press conference, ‘regeneration’ rather than ‘evolving,’” said Mendes, describing the way new actors of varying ages - and each with their own personal take on 007 - have stepped into the role of Bond over the years.
”I feel it’s like Doctor Who - there’s a geek answer - I was brought up on the idea of Doctor Who, who at the end of his final episode, he dissolves and a new actor pops up,” the director told Collider.
“He regenerates and it’s a whole other character: sometimes it’s an old man, sometimes it’s a young man, but he just changes. I’ve always loved that idea.”


Yes, Matt, you are beautiful.
