It was a pleasant surprise when wandering the rooms of the National Gallery at Trafalgar Square to find ‘The Fighting Temeraire’ by J. M. W. Turner in room 34. It is in front of this highly symbolic painting in Skyfall (2012) that Bond and Q the gadgets expert meet for the first time. The image of the old boat being pulled along by new technology is a significant one within the story of the film. Additionally, the image of the old boat being tugged along to be eventually broken down is also highly referential to Bond’s older age and increasingly precarious role as an agent within MI6.
