Is M James Bond's real Mother?

Spoiler Alert for anyone who have not seen Skyfall!!!


At the climax of Skyfall, while Silva is entering the chapel to kill M, he looks at the tombstone of Bond's parents. His father's name: Andrew Bond and Mother: Monique Delacroix Bond. In Casino Royale, Bond was about to reveal what M stood for before being interrupted by M. In this case M could be short for Monique. Also, every time M asks Bond about his past, he tells her that she already knows the sordid details.

I just find that it would be an Ironic twist to the Craig films in that everyone calls her Mom or mother, but she turns out to be his actual mother. It would be cool if he joined MI6 for the sole purpose of being with his mom but she disapproves. That could explain their antagonistic relationship since Casino Royale. I may be grasping at straws here but I kinda dig that theory.

What do you guys think?

She's not his mother. M doesn't stand for her name, it's just a title for the person in charge, hence why Mallory got called M at the end of the film.

Also nobody calls her mom, they're saying Ma'am. Trust me, I'm British.

Here is an excerpt from Casino Royale:

James Bond: I always thought M was a randomly assigned initial, I had no idea it stood for...
M: Utter one more syllable and I'll have you killed.

Well here is the history of james Bond on wikipedia
I dont have time to go through all this but l wonder if the answer is here

But being a fictional character you would think that he would have had a mum written into one of his movies

In the movie when they are at Scotland at James's childhood home, M tells Bond that orphans make the best agents. So, yeah. Bond's parents are dead. M is not his mother.

I don't think so ( Q , M and JB are basically aliases ) but that's a nice angle.

Yes, the evidence may show it.

I think if we look at the historical information of James Bond and other movies, she could be James Bond's mother.
1. In Moonraker, Bond visits the house of M. In the scene where they are talking about M's hobby of collecting butterflies, M is referred to as Miles.
2. In Casino Royal Daniel Craig, Bond is sitting in M's house on her computer when she discovers him. She asks how he knew where she lived and he told her along with saying that Bond thought that M was just a random letter. He never knew it stood for... M interrupts with say another syllable, etc.
3. Then we see the reference in Skyfall to Monique Delacroix Bond.
4. Mallory takes over and is called M. Along with all the other known scenes such as M's last words, the unique familiarity with M (Dame Judi Dench) and Bond (Brosnan and Craig) throughout the years, and the fact that a spy makes a better spy without having family ties (thus the orphan idea). She favored him.

Could it be that she faked her death in Switzerland to watch over James as he grew up and observe his whereabouts? Could she have known he would follow in his father's footsteps in the Royal Navy and as a spy? Don't forget, the Bonds come from a unique family and with that much land and a nice manor house as that, he would be raised as a favored son attending Eton and Oxford. His mother may have worked in MI-6 also and worked her way up the career to find her as the head of MI-6 and the new M. That may have been her plan.

Is M James Bond's Mother? I would have to say yes. However, did his father really die in the skiing accident also? We'll have to wait and see if he appears in the next Bond possibly as a new Earnst Stavro Blofeld and the head of SPECTRE.

They clearly implied her first or last name began with M. I don't think she is Bond's mother though. Thats just too stupid

Hmm...
Spoiler:
I guess that would explain why she had a grave before she died at the end.

Considering she's not the only person to play 'M' in a Bond movie, I'm going to go with no - they're not related. Judy Dench's M had her biggest part in a Bond movie with Skyfall, not too surprising considering the ending, but she's been in other Bond movies where she's just his boss. 'M' stands for something, just like 'Q' stands for Quartermaster . . . but it doesn't stand for Mother or Mom. That would be the dumbest story angle in film history.

My theory is that Bond and M continually knocked boots throughout the Daniel Craig films. The sexual tension between the two of them is blatantly obvious in ever scene that they share together. How else do you think Bond keeps a job at MI6? The man is a serious liability to the organization. He takes too many risks, he drinks on the job, he destroys millions of dollars worth of equipment and mouths off to everyone. That is enough to get you sacked at any workplace... unless you are giving it to the boss. Case closed.

M could be for Machiavelli who wrote a book about faking your death to fool your ennemies hence the above theory on escaping in switzerland by faking her death

Granted, they DID start the series over from scratch with "Casino Royale"...

But, no, I don't think she's his actual mother, either.

I think they were heavily hinting at her being Bond's mother.

Skyfall was intended to be a mini reboot which gave them some additional license to explore it.

Silva even said to him at the lake: "Ah, well. Mother's calling. I'll give her a goodbye kiss for you."

She said as she died: 'At least I got one thing right'

And he cried his eyes out when she died.

This is in addition to now well speculated references to her knowing his early past better than anyone else etc.

When I watched the film it actually seemed pretty clear.

yes she was his mother

it was clear when it was written on the tombstone. why else would they put that in the movie. also, she says orphans makes the best agents. that is true, but why cant her past be hidden to protect her identity, as well as james bonds. If everyone knew who james bonds mother was, they could easily use "M" as leverage.

Also, Does anyone think it was all a cover to begin with? In the beginning of the show, "M" was told she was being replaced for letting all the names for MI6 to be leaked. Maybe she never really died.... It was just a cover for her being replaced, and Bond starting a new agency with his new boss, reason being, so it can all be top secret again.

I agree. Though in the British armed forces they serve two difference purposes.

In the British Army, they are the battalion or regiment officers, normally with the rank of captain or major, who are responsible for supply.

And in the Royal Navy, they are the seamen who function as the ship's helmsmen.

If i may deviate a bit, and this is especially for those who don't think that M is Bond's mother, but what do you think went through Bond's mind as M died? Do you think he accepted the fact that she loved him yet would have done the very same thing to him that she did to Silva (Queen and country come first)?

It was certainly an interesting film even if it wasn't a great one (disclaimer: I'm NOT a Bond fan except for the Daniel Craig ones).
