Topic: Elements of Gardner and Benson used in Bond Films (minor spoilers)
I am compiling a lists of items in novels by Benson and Gardner that appear to be in Bond films:
1. The newscast in "Nobody Lives Forever", which chronicles the apparent death of Bond and 'the Hook', is very reminiscent of the scene in TND where Bond is watching the tape of the newscast of the death of Paris Carver and is about to killed.
2. The trip in "No Deals, Mr Bond" where Bond and Ebbie Heritage are in the Sampan heading over to the island in Hong Kong bay is very reminiscent of the scene ine trip in "Skyfall" where Bond and Sévérine go to Silva's island. Except there is no shower sex.
3. Sévérine appears to be based on Veronica or Sunni Pei from "Zero Minus Ten".
