The character, who was played in 17 movies by Desmond Llewelyn, has been absent from Craig's first two 007 adventures along with secretary Miss Moneypenny.

"We should give Q to a good actor," he said. "We should find an actor and find out what they think and find a good story. If we just drop it in there and then go to the basement and there is Q with exploding bananas, it is not going to work.
