We just watched a documentary on the various actors that played James Bond. The spy has taken his lumps over the years, but the show didn't explore that aspect of the character. What are the accumulated major injuries/wounds James Bond has received from 1962's Dr. No through to 2012's Skyfall?

    I recall seeing reference to a satirical article that posited that James Bond would be dead a dozen times over from the injuries he had received in the course of the movies.. Jan 13, 2015 at 2:52

    @JamesMcLeod Totally agree. OHMSS - the final scene is heartbreaking and without doubt the worst thing that ever happened to Bond IMHO.

    @JamesMcLeod you're talking about his wife being murdered at the very end right? After their wedding? I don't think the OP is referring to emotional pain.

    @JamesMcLeod The spy has taken his lumps over the years... makes me think of physical injuries. Maybe I'm mistaken though.

1 Answer 1


007 By the Numbers: Every James Bond Statistic You Never Knew You Needed to Know has some info (their title is clearly not truly accurate as they are missing this statistic in full):

Number of times Bond is knocked unconscious by a blow to the head: 11

By a drug (hidden in his drink, airborne powder or gas, blowdart, etc): 6

EDIT: Turns out he's been shot at 4662 times and 130 attempts made on his life
