** It's never officially given, to my knowledge. I seem to remember him being designated 4 somewhere once, though. I suspect that's because 4's the lowest number never used by a named character. (They go Blofeld, Largo, Klebb, unnamed guy in YOLT, Kronsteen, Jacques Bouvar, leaving a nice gap for No to be the "original" Number 4 before the YOLT guy.)

Plus that means Bond's neatly ascending the SPECTRE hierarchy.)

* What was Dr No's number within SPECTRE? The later films established that SPECTRE leaders have numbers, with Blofeld being Number One. So, does any merchandise/promotional material/whatever give No's number?

* What was the point of drugging the coffee. Bond and Honey were already prisoners and everything they had on them was taken during the radiation cleansing procedure? Next we see Bond sleeping in bed and someone, presumably Dr. No, looking over him. Not only did they drug them, but someone apparently put them to bed.

** It was Dr No. Most likely the motive was that he was going to invite Bond to dinner and didn't want to take chances that he and Honey would break out of their room somehow before then. He was probably busy with planning the next stage of his operation when Bond showed up (the nurses mention that they didn't know when Bond would show up, only that he would) and, beyond that, No is a ControlFreak who wants to dictate when and where and how he and Bond finally meet.

** They may have wanted to initially monitor him at first, possibly bring him in for questioning when he rode away with the fake driver as soon as he arrived in Jamaica. With Bond easily seeing through the ruse and with him beginning to make considerable headway in the case, it's possible Dr. No felt getting rid of Bond would be easier in the long run then allowing him the opportunity to uncover the truth. And in truth, it was Dent who panicked and visited No during the day. Dr. No simply didn't have the right man to deal with Bond and needed to rid himself of an inevitable problem.

*** Presumably the reactor went into meltdown, after which nothing in the plant can stop it happening. Makes you wonder about the [[InferredHolocaust aftermath]]...

** There's a bit of FridgeHorror in that, as Dr. No had implied to Bond that guards would have their way with her.
