Since his death in 1964, a number of different authors have written 007 novels too.
The same poll also discovered the UK’s favourite Bond movies based on one of Ian Fleming’s novels. After all, some of the 007 films are original stories not based on a book.
Here’s the full Top 10 for that poll too, which Daniel Craig’s debut managed to come top in.
Based on Fleming’s first Bond novel, the 2006 film sees the spy earning his Licence to Kill before taking on Le Chiffre at poker.
Craig sequels Quantum of Solace (named after a Fleming short story) and Spectre (an original tale) aren’t as warmly remembered by fans.
However, 50th anniversary Bond movie Skyfall (also a new story) is often near the top of best 007 movie polls.
As it stands, the blockbuster will hit UK cinemas on September 30 this year.
A direct sequel to 2015’s Spectre, the official synopsis reads: “Five years after the capture of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, James Bond has left active service.
“He is approached by his friend and CIA officer Felix Leiter, who enlists his help in the search for Valdo Obruchev, a missing scientist. When it becomes apparent that Obruchev has been abducted, Bond must confront a villain whose schemes could see the deaths of millions.”
