By Mark Hughes It has been billed as the Bond that will break with tradition. In Quantum of Solace Daniel Craig will not ask for his martini, "shaken, not stirred", and won't call himself "Bond, James Bond".

When the film is released at the end of next month, cinema-goers will see Bond drive his customised Aston Martin wearing his Omega watch and...
