Yes, you can help influence not only the film Pandy & I use as the joint review, but the homework we assign each other to plot the range of their career. As announced in Episode 17, our subject will be Dame Judi Dench.

Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review on Sunday 10th May, so get your ideas in before then!

NB) We won't be including any of the Pierce Brosnan/Daniel Craig Bond films, in which she portrays M. (I've) been there, reviewed that.

As great a dramatic actress as Dame Judi Dench is, you need to cover one of her comedies. Too bad you already covered Mrs. Henderson Presents for Bob Hoskins but oh well. Otherwise, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel or The Importance of Being Earnest for a good comedy, Notes on a Scandal is Dench just getting to play a more morally grey to black character, and Mrs. Brown was her breakout role.

The bolded part I'd argue is shaky ground. If you mean as the lead in a film that made great traction in the US, then that's fair enough, although she had had mainstream exposure in Kenneth Branagh's Henry V and Hamlet, and failing that as a definition of "mainstream", Goldeneye was released 2 years earlier.

Will's right, Mrs Brown was her breakout role.

For movies, sure. The previous 35 years she'd been a major player in theatre and had picked up film roles along the way.

Also, siding with Ackerman is going to affect the quality of future HAAs.....
