How come we all know where their headquarters are?
Surely that defeats the purpose?
I like the idea of a secret HQ, though.
yep, I've seen Skyfall. enjoyed it, apart from the komodo dragon bit. that was silly
Also, don't be a spoilerjerk!
didn't think. this is my achilles heel, not thinking. sowwy
third strike silky
in London though. And an underwater HQ in the Thames would be rubbish, you wouldn't be able to see anything.
their real headquarters is a secret
which I think still counts to the OP's point they don't have a hidden base.
Or do they!?!?!
*not that I think they secret service should have a secret base. That's just silly talk.
one is on the north bank of the Thames, one on the south, both next to Vauxhall Bridge.
So that less people would notice Farrell's building next door.
or REALLY fucking dull.
Imagine it, "I work for MI2!" "Oh really, what do you do?" "I have to supply the big black 'redaction' markers to the staff in MI5 and MI6."
Like the films.
If I remember correctly, MI5 is domestic and MI6 is abroad. I believe there used to be MIs 1-4 but they got rid of them, I might be wrong
I'd previously hoped they really were the secret secret services run by lizards.
It's probably why I opened my post with 'Military Intelligences 1-4...' Probably why. It may not have been. (JFC.)
but offically there aren't any MIs (including 5 and 6) anyway.
I've never seen anything look more like a spy headquarters. This is the building: http://www.computing.co.uk/IMG/703/142703/gchq-cheltenham-370x229.jpg?1291375191 and it's surrounded by these: http://www.ajb007.co.uk/images/2003-05/mhscene.gif (these are the Harrogate ones but they look the same)
MI6 is the Secret Intelligence Service, so the intelligence has to be secret, not where they all do their admin.
that theme song is pretty fucking conspicuous
that has powers that are different from civil police and normal authority powers.
There isn't a 'MI5' option in the 999 list at the beginning of the call. There should be though.
Which obviously drives the conspiracy theorists crazy
