The on-screen gadget guru was Bond's armourer, Major Boothroyd, in Fleming's novels and is directly based on a Glaswegian, Geoffrey Boothroyd, who advised the author on weapons for his later books.
The role began with Peter Burton as Major Boothroyd in Dr No, followed by Desmond Llewelyn in 17 Bond films between 1963 and 1999 and then John Cleese, who appeared as Q's assistant, R, in The World Is Not Enough and was promoted to Q in Die Another Day.
