Misstake Marples

They've got a television version of Miss Marples on at the moment. It's set in England a little time after the First World War, and it's all very jolly and splendid and what-ho, as you'd expect.

Yeah, I noticed that - if the James Bond's made any chronological sense at all, then Bond would now probably be in his 70s, since the first 'Dr No' film was made in, what, early 70s?
