5. Dial M for Murky

Skyfall seems to be about the repercussions of past mistakes, and Silva – interestingly enough – seems to be one of M’s biggest past mistakes. We’re not sure how, at this stage, but the two certainly have some history together. “The two survivors,” he says to Bond, “This is what she made us.” Was Silva a former agent in some way? Or did M do something that made him what he is today? It’s certainly intriguing, and may explain the burning hatred he seems to have for her. Update: here's a thought - what if M did to Silva what she may do to Bond at the beginning of the movie, and ordered his death for the greater good? And what if, like Bond, he escaped that fate? If that were the case, harbouring thoughts of revenge would be a fairly rational response...

1 Mommy?
At 1.40 Silva says: "Mommy was very bad." Just a thought. What if this "mommy" is meant to take literal? Just think about it. More

3 SPOILERS
**Potential Spoilers Ahead (But this is still just pure speculation)** So M orders Bonds 'death' after losing the HDD with the data to all of the undercover MI6 agents out in operation, so that Bond will be presumed dead by the bad guy agencies and can go about his new mission unpeturbed. More

4 Looks very appealing...
Have to say that DC's looking a little old in this and what's going on with his hair?! Vicious side parting or what?! If this movie hits the spot he should stand aside and go out on a high. Hopefully to be replaced by either Chris Nolan/Joe Wright/Danny Boyle and either Christian Bale or Michael Fassbender! More

7 Bond's obituary
The obituary seen on screen is taken, word-for-word (apart from substituting Japan for Turkey) from Chapter 21 of Ian Fleming's 'You Only Live Twice'. The obituary appears in 'The Times' (Bond is described as a senior office of the Ministry of Defence). More

Bond's obit in YOLT makes the papers and I believe they list his accomplishments, and choose a picture, as a naval commander and not a spy. More
