“Shocking news, Minister. I’m afraid we’ve lost our electronic surveillance ship, the St. Georges.”

The First Naval Lord (Graham Crowden)

As the direct head of MI6, the Ministry of Defence regularly intervenes in the agency’s affairs. The building, meanwhile, appears mainly in For Your Eyes Only and No Time to Die.

In the first, the Minister (Geoffrey Keen) receives a visit from the First Naval Lord and Vice-Admiral (Noel Johnson), informing him that the electronic surveillance vessel St. George had sunk in the Ionian Sea.

In the second one, James Bond parks right in front of the building before going to the institution’s premises.

Bernard Lee appeared 11 times in the role of M, but died just before the shooting of the 12th opus For Your Eyes Only. To honour his memory, the role of M has not been reassigned in this film.
