The dark tone to the film (by far the most serious for Creator/RogerMoore) oddly comes from Creator/TimothyDalton. When he was first courted by Albert R. "Cubby" Broccoli, he was asked what kind of Bond he would play. He briefed Cubby on a much darker, edgier Bond grounded in reality, and this script was born, making a note of killing off the main series villain before the opening credits to make way for the new direction. By the time the new script was ready, Moore had decided to do another one, and Dalton that he was too young to play Bond. So with the script ready and waiting, Moore slipped into this moody and morally ambiguous Bond, something we didn't see again until Dalton took the role.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: As stated above in PutOnABus, Bernard Lee, the original M actor, sadly died before production started. Out of respect to his memory, the producers and filmmakers chose not to recast the role of M right then and there, so they established early in the film by way of Ms. Moneypenny that M was "on leave" (vacation) to explain his absence, and the scenes that would have normally featured him were rewritten with other government official characters acting in his place carrying out his usual tasks. M would return in ''Octopussy'' played by Robert Brown, but it's never established if Brown is meant to be the same character simply played by a different actor (as Bond usually is across his many recasts) or if he is meant to be a new character replacing the previous M.
