Doctor Who Vs. James Bond, Part 1

The initial instalment in the James Bond
franchise was made in 1962 with a low 
budget but was a box office success, and is 
now considered one of the best titles in the 
series. In a partnership that would last until 
1975, the films were produced by Albert
Broccoli and Harry Saltzman.
Although the British MI6 agent and Royal 
Navy Commander, Bond (codenamed 007) 
was introduced in Casino Royale (1953),
Dr. No was loosely based on Ian Fleming's 
sixth novel (published in 1958).
The iconic role of Bond was originally offered 
to English movie star Cary Grant whilst
Fleming favoured David Niven or Richard 
Todd, but the producers ultimately cast 
Edinburgh-born actor Sean Connery when 
Grant could only commit to one appearance. 
The Swiss actress Ursula Andress was then 
chosen as the first Bond girl, Honey Ryder. Bernard Lee, introduced here as 'M' (the 
head of British Secret Service) and Lois Maxwell, his secretary Miss Eve
Moneypenny, both racked up eleven and fourteen appearances respectively. Connery ended his popular portrayal of Bond in Diamonds are Forever (1971), 
his sixth feature, and even reprised the role for Never Say Never Again (1983).
The famous Bond theme was composed for Dr. No by Monty Norman and was arranged by John Barry, but the now traditional title song was first performed
by Matt Munro for From Russia With Love (1963). Shirley Bassey was then
hired for Goldfinger (1964), the first of three theme songs.
Another Bond film season began on ITV today, and the first three films 
featured a total of twenty-seven Doctor Who cast and crew connections:

  • Robert Rietty (voice of Strangeways here; voice of Largo in Thunderball; voice of Tanaka in You Only Live Twice; voice of Dubbing in Casino Royale; Casino Official in OHMSS; voice of Blofeld in For Your Eyes Only; and Minister in Never Say Never Again) voiced Bedloe for Death Comes to Time
