Major Boothroyd - Lois Maxwell

This is the role that would eventually evolve into that of Q, the gadgets genius, and it is played here for the first and only time by Peter Burton. In the first two films, Boothroyd is simply referred to as an armourer or equipment officer and the role is largely colourless. In 'Dr. No', Boothroyd warns Bond that he should carry a Walther PPK instead of a Beretta because the former has 'a delivery like a brick through a plate-glass window' whilst the later is more appropriate for a lady's handbag.
