Dr. Lisa Funnell

In this episode, I explore how the Bond Girl archetype is reworked in the Daniel Craig era. On the one hand, the figure is deconstructed across the orphan origin trilogy - Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Skyfall - resulting in the depiction of different and outlier women in the series. On the other hand, the figure is reconstituted and reintroduced in Spectre through the character of Dr. Madeleline Swann who serves as a composite of previous Bond Girls featured in the series.
