Academics have used Ian Fleming's own opinion of how the ideal Bond would look to create a composite e-fit of 007, the Daily Telegraph reports.

But what we need to know is...

Now there's a Bond to dream about. If only they had dumped Roger Moore and picked up John Cleese...

Has a resemblance of Dax Sheperd, from Without a Paddle
