Who should be the next Bond? We ranked the top 10 contenders

We'll soon have to get used to a world in which Daniel Craig does not play James Bond.

For some this will be a blessed relief; for some the cause of great anguish. For others, of course - namely professional actors - it is the chance to step into the limelight. A chance to say, "Hello. My name is [professional actor]. It is my firmly held belief that I - yes I - should be appointed the seventh and final James Bond."

For most people this man is clearly going to be none other than Tom Hiddleston. We know this because everybody bloody loves Tom Hiddleston and also because the bookies have suspended betting on the role because everyone was betting for Tom Hiddleston. If a bookie does this it usually means that the public is right because bookies hate, bloody hate, losing money.

Regardless of all this, we rank our ten favourite contenders in the order that you they should truly be Bond, ranked by no other metric than that these were the first thoughts to come into our head as we ate breakfast.
