    Black-Patch" it is. From Casino Royale, the guy with the Peugeot.

    Close enough. The name's Gettler. Adolph Gettler. And the character also appeared in the film. At any rate, the ball's in your court, Campbell.

    Sorry, I looked up only that one chapter Black-Patch, didn't even remember here was a name given in the next chapter.

    OK, here goes:

    "The porter knocked, opened the door and announced Bond, and left him facing, across the unkempt study littered with books, papers, and important-looking inscribed parchments, the top of a bald, round pink head fringed with grizzled curls."

    Alright, this one's a place rather than a character.

    "The whole scene was macabre and livid, as if El Greco had done a painting by moonlight of an exhumed graveyard in a burning town."

    Is that The Boneyard in Live and Let Die?

    Are you sure? The Boneyard is the name of the bar that Bond and Leiter visit and that quote describes?

    I'm sorry! Yes, it's The Boneyard. I thought it was Bloody Morgan's Cave. Doh! Over to you, Dragonpol.

    Dragonpol, we need a question.

    As Dragonpol is clearly on holiday, I'm going to keep it going with this one:
    Quote from From Russia With Love (1957):
    " In five minutes I could have those names from you, or anything else I wish to know . You are playing a dangerous game with me ,Comrade. My patience will not last forever."
    Who said it for 10 points?
    Who did they say it to for a bonus 10 points?

    Isn't that Klebb to Tatiana regarding her former lovers?

    Over to you for the next question.

    Sorry folks. Totally forgot about this. If there are no objections, I will now deliver my new quote. Which character does this describe?:

    "Her eyes, puffed and wet with tears looked past him."

    Would that be Countess Teresa Draco Di Vincenzo, from On Her Majesty's Secret Service?

    Thanks - I've always thought that that would be a good description of the repulsive Rose West too!

    Which character was "First encountered as a displaced person..."?
