To quote Mark Kermode: Title, rubbish; taken from a story which this had nothing to do with. And I'm sorry, if you call something Quantum of Solace there needs to be a point at which you go 'oh, OK, that's a really clever thing to have called it' rather than [it making as much sense as] Pond of Wood, Fish of Trees. -- News and features will be returning shortly...

I 'gin to be a-weary of the sun,
And wish the estate o' the world were now undone.
