Dr. Molly Warmflash
Dr. Molly Warmflash serves as the main medical consultant to MI6 agents, including James Bond. 007 is sent to her for a check up to see if he’s fit enough for work. She identifies Bond’s dislocated collar bone, recommending he avoids strenuous activity.
However, Bond doesn’t want to be sidelined and tries to convince her to declare him fit for duty. He seduces her, and she tries to refrain, but she succumbs to his advances as Bond strips her.
Although Dr. Warmflash succumbs to Bond’s allure, she insists that he must stay in contact with her (this time) in exchange for his certification of health.
Later, Molly presents an informative session on Renard. Using a three-dimensional hologram as a visual aid, she elucidates the nature of his brain damage.
Dr. Warmflash notes that while the lodged bullet will inevitably lead to Renard’s death, he gains strength daily until his eventual death. His unique condition, an inability to experience pain, currently enables him to exceed normal human limitations.
