If I had told 16 year-old-me that Ridley Scott would return to direct a new Alien film, he would hyperventilate with joy. Then if I told him that he would not only not be queuing up at his local cinema to see it on day of release, but wouldn't even be likely to ever watch it unless there was no better choice on a long-haul flight, he would have some kind of breakdown.

Personality wise, the actor has imbued the nation's favourite fictional spy with the charismatic appeal of a past his prime, pumped up gym instructor. This means that any villain has to work doubly hard to compensate. But of late they've simply paled next to former dastardly greats such as Auric Goldfinger and Francisco Scaramanga.

Must-See! Must I?

Julia Wagner

While must-see lists may be handy, their sense of obligation irks me. There is a presumptuousness in labelling a film or programme a must-see, presupposing my tastes and why I watch. I instinctively I recoil as soon as anyone tells me I must do anything; what will happen if I don't?

Although I never met him, he always came across as being a true gentleman with a self-depreciating sense of humour. In his later years he involved himself in charity work, particularly UNICEF, for which he campaigned since 1991. He also campaigned for PETA.
