It MI6 has a rather [[{{HomeBase}} cool base]], namely its headquarters at Vauxhall Cross.Cross on the River Thames. On the other hand, it is apparently regarded as [[AwesomeButImpractical as a massive security risk]] by the Agents themselves thanks to its location, judging by the cheers at the SIS screenings every time it's blown up in one of the Bond films. Its domestic counterpart, MI5 also has a [[{{HomeBase}} cool base]] at Thames House, on the opposite side of the river, a little further down.

Spycatcher
Added DiffLines:
[[folder:Real Life]] * ''Spycatcher: The Candid Autobiography of a Senior Intelligence Officer'' is the autobiography of Peter Wright, a lifelong SIS operative who, after a faithful working life spent in Intelligence, was incensed to discover he'd been shafted with regard to his pension. His book blows the lid on British Intelligence and its practices between 1945 and approximately 1985, and was so incendiary that the British government banned its publication in Britain. Everywhere else in the English-speaking world published it, though. [[/folder]]
