Foul-mouthed Dench

I was tickled by this story which has emerged from the publication of the British Board of Film Classification's annual report and which claimed that, "Every film in which actress Dame Judi Dench swears results in complaints". For it seems that a handful of UK cinemagoers objected to Dench's use of a "minor expletive" in 12A-rated Quantum of Solace. But the complaints, said the BBFC, were "expected". "Almost every time Dame Judi swears in a film, regardless of its category, we can expect a number of complaints," the report claimed.

Fantastic! She's doing a good job of ruffling feathers in real life too:

Thanks for that Fran. Seems the M role was indeed perfect casting.
