What is Q?
Sir Alex Younger, known in MI-6 circles as C, made the statement in January. He said, “If any of you would like to join us…the real-life Q is looking forward to meeting you and I’m pleased to report that the real-life Q is a woman”. Younger went on to say “The more different people you have in the room, in these high-pressure circumstances in which we operate, the better the decisions. So success for me is a deeper, broader range of technological skills in MI6 and more diversity, in particular more women.”
In the James Bond movies, Q is the character who devises the very imaginative gadgets used by Bond, often to extricate the spy from sticky situations.
