"Oh my God. You have a monocle!
Is this real? Is this really happening?!
Good luck killing James Bond
Ted Mosby
'How I Met Your Mother'

James Bond exists in Toobworld. In fact, his first visual incarnation adapted from the Ian Fleming stories was in a television production of "Casino Royale" back in the 1950's. That first James Bond was an American who was sometimes called "Jimmy".

The code name "James Bond" was then adopted by British Intelligence to be used as an umbrella alias for their top spies. We saw one of them in action in the reunion movie for 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.', which could conceivably absorb "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" out of the Cineverse and into Toobworld.

The fact that people in Toobworld know about this super spy named James Bond and often make references to the movies about him is all part of the plan by the powers that be to mask the truth about certain people - like James Bond, the U.N.C.L.E. agents, and the Time Lord known as the Doctor - by creating fictional movies and even TV shows about their exploits. That way the general public - and more importantly, enemies! - would be confused as to what was reality and what was fiction.

In its basic form, I think this is a notion shared by the good folks of the Wold Newton Universe concept.....
