James Bond is a Time Lord

Alan Gratz on TOR.com:

I saw Skyfall last night, and after breaking it down, I can come to only one conclusion: this is the Bond film in which it is revealed that James Bond is a Time Lord.

On Twitter this afternoon I mused that at some point, the James Bond films should tackle the question of why Bond is a different person every five or ten years. Some of the folks I converse with on Twitter offered a good suggestion – that James Bond is a Time Lord (like Doctor Who).

Turns out that children’s book author Alan Gratz hypothesized this following the release of Skyfall, the latest Daniel Craig Bond adventure. It makes for an entertaining read.
