Film biography

In Never Say Never Again, M was portrayed as more of a bureaucrat, contemptuous of Bond — far removed from the relationship shared between Bernard Lee's M and Sean Connery's Bond; academic Jeremy Black notes that the contempt felt for the 00 section by Fox's M was reciprocated by Connery's Bond. Fox's M is also younger than any of the previous incarnations. Academic James Chapman notes that whilst M considers Bond to be an out-dated relic, the Foreign Secretary orders the 00 section to be re-activated.

Following the defeat of Largo and Bond's subsequent retirement from MI6, M fearing for the safety of the world and realizing how important Bond is to the service and sends Nigel Small-Fawcett to Bond's villa to plead for his return.
