Abstract

This article examines the significance of the new Q in Skyfall (Dir. Sam Mendes, 2012) and Spectre (Dir. Sam Mendes, 2015). It explores some of the ways that the new take on Q in the Craig era has not only adapted the dynamic between Bond and the MI6 gadget-master by turning him into a young tech geek, but also speaks volumes about masculinity and the Bond franchise.
