Fiction's Finest Nerds #31

Some of the best parts of any James Bond movie is his meeting with "Q" — especially when he was played by Desmond Llewelyn. His Q was highly anal-retentive, but he provided a great comedic foil for our hero, especially during the Roger Moore years.

Llewelyn was not the only Quartermaster for James Bond, but is the best known. After his death in 1999 the role was filled by John Cleese as "R" — a nod to his coming after Q.
