If I had to choose, I'm completely neutral between the two, who I imagine would be differentiated only in name and by the person playing either on-screen. If they must do it, all I ask is that they get a good actress and try to make it interesting for once.

Frankly, I am pleased they have jettisoned formula and left Moneypenny out of CASINO ROYALE. A blink-and-you-miss-it role (with, preferably, Ponsonby) may be tolerable in the future, but why bother?

Definitely, although you know she'll be introduced in the next film, doubtless with losta backstory (be interesting to see whether it chimes with Kate Westbrook - doubtful, as her Moneypenny was born in 1900 or something, and, anyway, I expect they'd have to pay for the rights, but anyhoo....).

I understand that sentiment, and it is one I would have wholly shared until fairly recently. Now I am beginning to feel rather more optimistic with the evident courage Eon displayed in casting Daniel Craig and two relatively unknown female leads, in throwing away formula and doing something (apparently) pretty divergent from the recent Bond trends, and in culling Q and Moneypenny in the first place.

Who knows? They might stick to their guns. Let us hope that they do.
