00 Agents - James Bond Wiki
The 00 agents are the elite operatives of MI6, the British international intelligence agency. In film, there is allusion that there are only nine 00 agents however in other canon references, there are as many as 12 mentioned . New agents are assigned when a current agent is dismissed or is killed in the field. All 00 agents have a license to kill, which means that they have authorization to accomplish their goal through ANY means necessary. To be eligible for 00 status, one must kill someone in cold-blood while on mission.

We only ever see all of the 00s on screen together during the "Great 00 Meeting" in the movie appears to be a female, but none of their faces are discernible. The agents are gathered to investigate threat of nuclear attack. Some use this scene as proof that there are only 9 00 agents ever active at once. However, Moneypenny states that all the 00 agent in Europe have been recalled for the meeting, not all active 00 agents.

There have been many references to other Double-0 agents in but none are featured prominently. The total number of 00s worldwide is unknown, but 16 agents have been referred to in both the films and novels (extending past the series). Over the 24 films to date, 7 different 00 - numbers have been introduced.

Below is a list of 00s that have been named or referred to in the films:

  • 005:Stuart Thomas never appeared in the films but made two appearances in the books. In Colonel Sun he is Stuart Thomas, head of G section, who had served as 005 until an eye defect forced him into retirement. He ran a bookshop as a cover but it was burnt down by the opposition and 005 disappeared. M later says he is presumed dead. However in The Facts of Death a scaled down G section is being run by Stuart Thomas. Like Mark Twain said, 'reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated'.

  • 006 : Previously in the book On Her Majesty's Secret Service, when Mary Goodnight became the 00 section secretary, there is a bet in the section as to who will seduce her first. The joint favourites are 007 and 006, an ex-Royal Marine Commando.

  • 008: Goldfinger has a similar scenario to the film of the same name only Bond is not merely failing to report but facing certain death. The novel however has 008 (named Bill) resting in Berlin following a mission. Bond says he must be badly injured then.

  • 009: The graphic novels Deadly Double and Sepent's Tooth, feature a third agent 009.
  • 0010: John Wolfgramm, referred to in the Benson novel The Man with the Red Tattoo.
  • 0011: The 00 mentioned in the novel Moonraker who "vanished into the 'Dirty Half-Mile' in Singapore two months ago." Fate unknown.

  • 00?: Agent York is killed in the comic strip River of Death (published June 24, 1969 to November 29, 1969 in The Daily Express). Agent York is a 00 agent but his number isn't revealed.

Since all 00's are ex-special forces operatives (SAS or SBS), that makes a female 00 agent a contradiction in terms. I guess they have references to it in the films to keep things PC, but its an inconsistent inclusion.
