fell through the door
And then we watched Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

"A raised eyebrow instead of a car chase"

I guess
When Sam Mendes said  that writing Skyfall was one of the best experiences he had had in scripting a film (ref Wiki)

He was referring to
Rehashing Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
Mash-up with Home Alone.
A touch of Spy Kids...
39 Steps.

Oh how Mendes must have laughed.
All the way to the bank

Both films pivot around 'the old ways are best'..
A woman is shot

We see
The same roof.
The Churchill dog.

Bond's peril
His knee is squeezed...

The message.
Badly treated 'allies' become insane terrorists.

Computers make trains crash through the ceiling.
