The real Q is a woman, British chief spy reveals
Sir Alex Younger, speaking at Women in IT Awards, says James Bond films give MI6 a global profile – but their stereotypes are not entirely accurate
By Ewen MacAskill

Although she was not identified by name, MI6’s head of operational technology is a woman. This news came as part of a keynote speech that MI6’s chief, Alex Younger, gave to a group of women in technology, encouraging them to join the agency:

“If any of you would like to join us … the real-life Q is looking forward to meeting you and I’m pleased to report that the real-life Q is a woman.”

At the risk of sounding maudlin, I guess I am searching for a cure to loneliness. I’ve never been a very outwardly social person, I struggle with people in day-to-day life - something I believe a lot of introverts can understand (all my friends are online, ha ha). The problem is, I do want to talk and know people; to communicate myself and be understood and then understand someone else in return. I had nurtured the idea of getting a penpal for a while but was always a little anxious over the idea - what if they didn’t like me, what if they thought me a fool? But given how my life has gone up until now I just thought one day ‘what the heck, just do it’. So here I am in all my awkward but optimistic glory, trusting in this leap of faith.
