Geraldine James' face — those high cheekbones, sky-blue eyes and, what one London theater critic called her "Titian locks" — might look vaguely familiar. James is 61 now but still recognizable as Sarah Layton, the pivot point and conscience of "The Jewel in the Crown. " The 14-part "Masterpiece Theater" drama on the last days of British rule in India drew wide acclaim and a huge U.S. audience when it aired in 1984, thrusting the then-thirtysomething actress to the top rank of her profession.

A new James Bond novel will be published in 2008 to mark the centenary of creator Ian Fleming's birth, but the identity of the new author is being kept under wraps. Fleming is credited with writing 13 or 14 Bond novels, starting with "Casino Royale" in 1953 and ending with "Octopussy and the Living Daylights." The authorship of "Thunderball" is disputed.

Oh, to live in a world where "Last Tango in Halifax" becomes as crazy-popular as "Downton Abbey. " Both air here on PBS, although "Last Tango" is not under the "Masterpiece" imprint, and both feature British legends (Maggie Smith in "Downton," Derek Jacobi in "Last Tango"). Also, both explore, with no shortage of sentiment or humor, the vagaries of time and tide as well as the essential significance of family. In many ways - freshness of characters, complexity of insight, courage of conviction - "Last Tango" is the better show.

ENTERTAINMENT JOBS are inherently unstable. A part is cut from a script, and an actor is out of a job by lunch. You fall a few days behind on plot outlines for the network, and the next morning Steven Bochco is suddenly in charge of the female-president show you created. Your stockholders revolt over your autocratic management style and -- boom -- you're losing your Disney CEO job in 10 short years. But rarely is there no hope for recovery.

The filmmakers behind James Bond invented (and then reinvented) the spy movie -- then watched as a generation of action directors, er, borrowed from the movies about the resourceful secret agent. We'll have plenty from the principals on the new movie, titled “Skyfall” and set for a Nov. 9 opening in the U.S., in the weeks ahead. But with the Daniel Craig movie premiering in London Tuesday night, we thought it worth posing one of the big questions asked about Bond circa 2012: How much does 007 have in common with other action heroes currently on the big screen?
