    We are in an age of equal rights - I don't have any problem at all having a woman doing a job that is traditionally a man's. It is nice that we have a female Prime Minister (regarding gender rather than political status as a point there); a female Metropolitan Police Commissioner, and so on. James will become Jane or June as a result if we did have a female Bond, but I bet that the character will be just as successful as her male counterpart.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Yes but Bond already has a 56 year history as a man, how on earth does he suddenly change gender?...The notion of a JAMES bond female equivalent is an interesting one but you surely can't be suggesting that James suddenly becomes June?

    Well, she can be a different character to James - she could be his wife or sister - Supergirl was a different character to Superman as they were cousins, and She Ra was He-Man's twin sister. She would be a different person.

    I suppose that as she was the BBC's Royal Correspondent, it might be a case of On Her Majesty's Secret Service?
