“- I’ve been trying to reach you all morning. What have you been up to?

– Rest and recreation, my darling. The trip back from Siberia took a lot out of me.

– Your dedication when you’re on the job is most commendable, James.”

Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell) and James Bond (Roger Moore)

The headquarters of Universal Exports is actually the headquarters of MI6, the British secret service.

M, Moneypenny, Q or 007 are used. If in the first James Bond films the location is not very explicit, in others like A View to a Kill or Octopussy, the Old War Office building is clearly displayed.

In Licence to Kill, James Bond (Timothy Dalton) does not visit the organisation’s headquarters, but M (Robert Brown) and Moneypenny (Caroline Bliss) can be seen talking about it.

Later, the real MI6 headquarters will be used in The World Is Not Enough and Skyfall.

4,5

A New Zealand study found that James Bond had an average of 4.5 drinks in a film. Daniel Craig being the most consuming with 20 units of alcohol per feature film against 12 for Pierce Brosnan, 11 for Sean Connery and Roger Moore, 9 for George Lazenby and 5 for Timothy Dalton.

Old War Office Building

From 1906 to 1964, the Old War Office Building housed the administration of the War Office, a former department.

Completed in 1906, this neo-baroque building was built in only five years for 1.2 million pounds sterling.

Impossible not to get lost in it, the immense building has a thousand rooms on seven floors.
