The best of the baddies who have shaken and stirred James Bond
Joseph Wiseman as Dr. No in Dr. No
The launch of the James Bond screen franchise in 1962 required something sinister, something special.
Joseph Wiseman, aka Dr. Julias No, emerged from the shadows.
He was Half-Chinese, half-German and totally deranged.
This evil physician's dexterity with toxic chemicals cost him both his hands, leaving him with metal digits and quite the chip on his shoulder.
Plan A for Dr.No was taking over the world using US spaceships. Sadly, he had to settle with a plan much further down the alphabet – boiling in roasting, radioactive water.
