    Nice try. Perdur Glynn I believe his name was. But no.
  • Hint #2: This character is from a novelization
    Spelled out that means this character is from TSWLM, MR, LTK, GE, TND, TWINE, or DAD

    Maybe Agent XXX's lover?
  • That is correct! His name is Sergei Borzov. On to you for the next question

    Oh wow- I wasn't expecting to get that right! :D Great question!

    I'll come up with one as soon as I can.

    Okay go on then, as Gerard asked a car-based one here's another:

    Which car appeared in both a Sean 007 movie and a Roger 007 movie?

    (I have a particular answer in mind and think there's only one, but might be missing something of course!)

    Cubby's Silver Cloud II in both TB and AVTAK?

    Ooooh, I really have to think of something quickly, or I'll forget it yet another time. Remind me if I don't revert until tomorrow night, please...though I'll be away all day tomorrow.

    Providing a gentle nudge to @j_w_pepper to come up with the next question

    Sorry, guys, I've really been looking at it up and down on several occasions since the "gentle nudge", but haven't managed to find anything that satisfies my desire to be neither banal (as in "a non-Bond fan could guess this correctly") nor overly elaborate (as in "you really have to do some internet research to find the solution"). So anybody who wishes to post a question please do so.

    I have a really hard one, and I am talking about trivia quizzes here. You won't find this one on the internet.

    What do these scenes have in common?

    Gadget time in the San Moniquan hotel (LALD)
    Kananga's henchman operating the elevator under the gravestone in the cavern lair (LALD)
    Bond and Christmas outside the missile silo in Kazakhstan (TWINE)

    First clue: Not the bug detector, but the other one. You can find this first detail on the internet.

    My immediate thought was that the hairbrush prop later featured in an episode of Doctor Who, but I can't think how that relates to the others!

    Yes! I knew you'd get it @mtm! All three scenes feature a prop that would later appear in Doctor Who!

    Morse code hairbrush appears in Doctor Who
    Kananga's lair control panel to operate the gravestone elevator appears in Doctor Who
    IDA equipment from the TWINE silo appears in Doctor Who

    I'll flesh that out more in the Who thread.

    Your turn, @mtm!

    Oh wow, I didn't know that! Do you know which stories they're in? I don't recognise them immediately.

    You can actually see Scaramanga's laser gun prop in the background in a scene in the story Planet of Fire!

    Nice! Didn't know about the laser gun, but I'll list the episodes and some pics over there now.

    Good one. But never having seen a single episode of Doctor Who, I wouldn't have had an idea.

    Are we waiting for @mtm to pose a question? Or is this an open thread where anyone can pose a question? I should be clear that I don't have a question. :)

    As a suggestion, why not give any winner a week to find a new question. When that week passes, it's first come, first asked. So in this case, @mtm found the solution on the 9th, so he has until the end of the 16th to post a new question. Or longer of course, unless anyone else is quicker than him. Sound ok?

    Nothing is springing to mind immediately so I don't mind if you want to step in, thedove!
