Points, Skyfall, Points

I was watching 2011’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy again tonight and just noticed two familiar Jack Bulldogs sitting on the bureau behind MI6 spymaster Control (John Hurt) … familiar, because one is the same Jack Bulldog sitting on the desk of MI6 spymaster M (Judi Dench) in 2012’s Skyfall. So, points to Skyfall for this homage (or do all MI6 bosses have porcelain Jack Bulldogs on their desks?) as both M and Control have been tricked from the inside by people they once trusted (a mole, and a 00 agent turned terrorist, respectively) who end their careers at the top of the circus.
