From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

James Bond was a fictional secret agent created by author Ian Fleming in the mid-20th century. Some 50 novels chroncling the character's exploits were written by Fleming and others over the next 50 years, and the character was featured in a long-running series of motion pictures from the early 1960s.

References

  • Fitz Kreiner imitated the character on numerous occasions. (EDA: Demontage)
  • According to one account of the First Doctor's final adventure, Ben Jackson, a man from the mid-1960s, viewed a Bond film starring Roger Moore in 2000 (DWN: Doctor Who and the Tenth Planet); however another account says Jackson actually viewed an unidentified western film in 1986 (DW: The Tenth Planet). Although Moore had not taken on the role of Bond when the serial was first broadcast in 1966, he had already made two Bond films by the time author Gerry Davis' novelisation was published in 1976. It is also worthy of note that by 1986, Roger Moore was no longer Bond. The role eventually went to Timothy Dalton, but in 1986 it was offered to Pierce Brosnan, although it's possible that Ben was viewing the 1985 film A View to a Kill, which did star Moore.
  • Jo Grant, who supposedly worked for UNIT as a secret agent, complained that contrary to the beliefs of her family and friends, her real life involved much more drudgery than the glamorized life of James Bond. (DW: Frontier in Space)
  • When the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones went to attend Lazarus' experiment, Martha commented that the Doctor looked like James Bond due to his decision to wear a black-tie tuxedo for the occasion. (DW: The Lazarus Experiment)
