James Bond was a fictional British secret agent created on Earth in the mid-20th century. Sean Connery and Roger Moore, who had previously played another fictional secret agent in the television series The Saint, were among the actors who played the role in the film series. (AUDIO: Thin Ice)

Rory Williams was the apparent inspiration for the character, after he and the Eleventh Doctor rescued Bond's creator, Ian Fleming, during the London Blitz. (COMIC: The Doctor and the Nurse)
