Screenwriter Christopher Wood dies

On Saturday morning Roger Moore announced on twitter the death of screenwriter and novelist Christopher Wood. 


Wood wrote the screenplay for two of Moore’s Bond filmsThe Spy Who Loved Me (1977, which he wrote with Richard Maibaum) and Moonraker (1979). He also wrote novelisations of the two films.

As well as his work on Bond, Wood’s best known works were published under the name Timothy Lea. Confessions of a Window Cleaner was the first of a series of novels and films detailing the sexual exploits of the protagonist, but Wood also wrote a series of historical novels and other more serious works.

In 2006 Wood published his memoirs under the title James Bond, The Spy I Loved.


David Leigh founded The James Bond Dossier in 2002. A fan of 007 since the age of 8, he is also author of The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond. You can order a copy here if you don't own it already.
