No doubt, to have Bond - who has escaped countless perils and villains in over 20 movies - killed off by corporate mis-management and debt would be the worst kind of irony.

I've actually been expecting to read that they've sold the rights to the Bond franchise in order to recover (somewhat), I'm not sure what other properties they own that would be worth anywhere near as much as Bond.

Thats a start but you're right, Bond alone would have saved the company.
