Q is a fictional character in the James Bond novels and films. Q (standing for Quartermaster), like M, is a job title rather than a name. The real name of Q being Major Boothroyd, he is the head of Q Branch (or later Q Division), the fictional research and development division of the British Secret Service. The character actually appears only fleetingly in Ian Fleming's novels, but comes into his own in the successful Bond film series; he is also mentioned in the continuation novels of John Gardner and Raymond Benson. The character, Q (although he is not always identified by that title), has appeared in every 007 film in the original EON continuity except Live and Let Die (as Desmond Llewelyn, who was playing Q at the time, was bound by commitments to other projects). Casino Royale showcases a number of gadgets and sophisticated tools used by Bond.
