2,500 of the British Public were polled on behalf of the car sales site JCT600 for their favourite Bond Cars and honestly the result at least for me came down to which Aston Martin would be number 1. It turns out the DB5 topped the list with four other Aston's in the list. The only car to break the stranglehold was the Jaguar XKR from Die another Day.
The Aston Martin brand is now so intertwined with the Bind franchise it would have felt inconceivable for one of their cars not to top the list. Though in the books Bond's top car would have probably been his Bentley 1930 Bentley 4½ Litre which he drove in Casino Royale after he totalled his Bamford & Martin 1.5 litre Side Valve Short Chassis Tourer.
Still it's safe to say with the Aston Martin DB10 set to star in the upcoming Spectre movie the Bond/Aston Martin relationship is alive and well.
We will be bringing you our reviews on the film in the coming weeks.
Top 5 list
1. Aston Martin DB5 (film: multiple)
2. Aston Martin DBS V12 (film: multiple)
3. Jaguar XKR (film: Die Another Day, 2002)
4. Aston Martin V12 Vanquish (film: Die Another Day, 2002)
5. Aston Martin DB Mk III (book: Goldfinger, 1959)

A bit of a change to our regular programming as we relaunch the Random Chat with episode 28.
This episode is looking at the Humble Bundle and why its a great thing.
The final is here but in my build up I have noticed my failings and this game really shines a light on the areas I need to improve.
The Semi's are here it's time to see how the cut and thrust of the Cup shapes up.
What this is
The random chat is changing a little to be just as the title says. This is going to function as my place to chat about things that can come from anywhere, from TV to films to Sport to gaming. Most things are up for discussion even though I will avoid the key no no's like Religion, Politics and Macro Economics (Micro economics of the gaming/comics world though is still fair game) and of course the biggie whether the Spice Girls were the greatest musical group of all time or not. I hope to bring a taste of something different in these posts and please feel free to comment where you see fit.
