SEVEN, Wed­nes­day, 8.30pm, M ( 1997)

Girls? Check. Gad­gets? Check. Vil­lains? Check. Ex­otic lo­cales? Check. Stunts? Check. Q and M? Check. With dash­ing Pierce Bros­nan ( pic­tured), butt- kick­ing Michelle Yeoh, de­li­cious Teri Hatcher, a fu­tur­is­tic BMW, ne­far­i­ous Jonathan Pryce, the Ori­ent, Judi Dench and the late Des­mond Llewe­lyn, how could Bond fail? Rou­tine – that’s how. The spec­tac­u­lar in­jec­tion of vi­tal­ity given to the Bond fran­chise with 2006’ s Casino Royale com­pletely over­shad­ows Roger Spot­tis­woode’s all- style, no- sub­stance di­rec­tion. And as for Bros­nan, Daniel Craig has put him well and truly in the shade.
