With the planned release of a new Bond movie every 3-4 years, there has been some chatter about what to do in the meantime.
3-4 years is a long time between drinks, and means each lead actor will have only a handful of films in his era. Daniel Craig is already coming up 49; surely we can't have another Bond over 50?
To my mind, a new movie would ideally come out every 2 years, keeping the momentum going and allowing an actor a decent crack at the title, 4-5 films being quite a reasonable expectation.
But 3-4 years? How do you, as a fan, fill in the time?
How about a TV series? A short series, maybe 6-8 episodes per season, with a couple of seasons between films.
Accomplished thriller writers such as Adrian Magson, Alex Berenson, Charles Cumming could write episodes, or maybe a season per writer. To differentiate the TV series from the movies, they could be period pieces set in Bond's war time, or in his early days with the service. That way it would complement the movie series, rather than compete with it.
What do you think?
