Judi and Daniel
Judi Dench's M has seldom left her office in the previous Bond movies. Spanning the Brosnan and Craig eras, she's tended to sit behind her desk making disapproving comments about 007's recklessness while eventually coming good when our man needs to be backed up. Not so in Skyfall. She is absolutely a principal character and we can even go as far as to say that the relationship between M and Bond is the most important in the film.
