Daniel Craig will never be a great Bond until he has a great ski scene.
I’m a fan of Bond and I’m a fan of Daniel Craig, but he hasn't ticked all the Bond boxes yet. I like that Craig has brought serious grit to the character. There’s a vengeful murderous glint in his eye that would look distinctly out of place under the camply arched eyebrow of safari suit wearing Roger Moore. He’s destroyed some eye wateringly beautiful cars, he’s had a few gadgets, he’s got the girl killed, he’s escaped the inescapable, he’s dispatched some very evil henchman and he’s saved the world from Megalomaniacs.
So why do I feel like he hasn't got it all?
Simple: He doesn't ski!
Cast your mind back to the many great Bond films and what comes straight to the mind away?
Here’s a few warm up questions:
And now the big ones:
Now that was a cheer-out-loud cinematic moment!
Many Bond fans still rate Sean Connery as the most iconic Bond and he didn’t ski, but it’s hard to forget that Roger Moore was the most popular. And why was he more popular than those before or after? Because he skied.
To all the Broccolis that decide what happens in Bond films: don’t relegate Daniel Craig to the list of forgotten Bonds like Timmy something and Pierce something else. Get him on skis and make him the best Bond ever!

"Just home from Christmas in Val d'Isere... this was the best ski holiday I have ever been on. Val is stunning, the hotel fabulous, staff sensational and skiing out of this world. We booked through Iglu. They were fantastic. Peter had great ski knowledge, offered advice and went the extra mile. " - Pamela (Dec 2015)
