The Many Faces of Dame Judi Dench

Today sees the 82nd birthday of Dame Judi Dench, so this week we dedicate the quiz to her! A renowned actress for over six decades, she achieved worldwide fame at age 60 when she took on the role of "M" in the James Bond films, bringing an unusual level of class and believability to the franchise. But she's been awesome too so often in so many other films, it's hard to keep count...

Therefore, once again I'm going to use eleven close-ups of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images and guess which movies or shows they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun. Try to see how far you get without using IMDb!
And I'll post the answers next Thursday (or earlier if someone gets all eleven of them right).

Shelagh Rowan-Legg, Michele "Izzy" Galgana and Kurt Halfyard contributed to this story.

And here she is in a recent press shot.

This picture isn't part of the quiz yet, but the others are. Browse through them all, and see how many you recognize!

#3 Jeez. That's M, but in which one? I'll guess Skyfall.
#5 is Mrs. Brown
#6 Shakespeare in Love?

Great quiz. I love her works but I'm blanking on most of these. As Time Goes By is one of my all time favorite sitcoms if you can call it that.

All correct!

That just leaves 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11...

#7 has to be A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Ard VijnDecember 9, 2016 6:45 PM

Correct as well!

Gareth HackingDecember 10, 2016 7:11 PM

2 is Tea with Mussolini.
10 is The Chronicles of Riddick

I think 4 is 84 CHARING CROSS ROAD

marshy00December 10, 2016 10:47 PM


Ard VijnDecember 11, 2016 11:52 AM

Both correct! Though I think you meant 9 rather than 10 for CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK.

Ard VijnDecember 11, 2016 11:52 AM


Ard VijnDecember 11, 2016 11:53 AM

Correct too!

Ard VijnDecember 11, 2016 11:56 AM

Correct again! That just leaves 1 and 10...

Over on our Facebook page, Nicholas Poly has correctly identified number one as being MY WEEK WITH MARILYN.

That just leaves number 10, which we all agree is a very difficult one...

Ard VijnDecember 19, 2016 9:58 AM

Been a bit busy over the weekend, so I missed Luke Piotrowski correctly identifying number ten as HAMLET on our facebook page.

Ard VijnDecember 19, 2016 10:04 AM

And that concludes the quiz! As usual (though a bit late), here are the titles and the people who correctly knew them first:

1: MY WEEK WITH MARILYN (Nicholas Poly)
2: TEA WITH MUSSOLINI (Gareth Hacking)
3: SKYFALL (ManateeAdvocate)
4: 84 CHARING CROSS ROAD (marshy00)
5: MRS. BROWN (ManateeAdvocate)
6: SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE (ManateeAdvocate)
7: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM (ManateeAdvocate)
8: CHOCOLAT (marshy00)
10: HAMLET (Luke Piotrowski)
11: THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH (marshy00)
