“She is a person who longed for marriage and children but never achieved either. I don’t think she’s bitter at all, but I do think she regrets what happened all those years ago – having to turn down someone she loved very much.” ~ Judi Dench on playing Miss Matty Jenkyns in Cranford.

“Chairman, ministers, I’ve repeatedly heard how irrelevant my department has become. Why do we need agents, the 00 section? Isn’t it all rather quaint? Well, I suppose I see a different world than you do, and the truth is that what I see frightens me. I’m frightened because our enemies are no longer known to us. They do not exist on a map, they aren’t nations. They are individuals. And look around you – who do you fear? Can you see a face, a uniform, a flag? No, our world is not more transparent now, it’s more opaque! It’s in the shadows – that’s where we must do battle. So, before you declare us irrelevant, ask yourselves – how safe do you feel?” ~ M | Skyfall (2012).
