* RealLifeWritesThePlot: 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 (possibly even Admiral Hargreaves, Brown's character from ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'').

* CreatorBacklash: Creator/RogerMoore hated the final scene with MargaretThatcher. He felt it didn't suit the serious tone of the rest of the film. He also didn't like getting a clue about the ATAC from a parrot. Moore thought it the type of silliness his Bond films were usually criticized for being.

* WrittenInAbsence: Because Bernard Lee had died before production started, M is explained as being on leave. Cubby Broccoli refused to recast the role out of respect, so his lines were given to Tanner.

Cubby Broccoli refused to recast the role out of respect, so his lines were given to Tanner. The scene with Q in the confessional was originally M (indeed, the scene makes far more sense if you imagine Bond is talking to his boss rather than the guy who makes his gadgets).
