I believe the only time Bond goes in M's office is OHMSS. All the other films it's somewhere else: sub, Bond's tacky flat, M's car, Hemingway House, etc.

Hint: The answer is within the first five to ten (or so) minutes.

Casino Royale's PTS doesn't involve any sort of air travel (plane, helicopter, parachute, etc)?

Okay, here's another clue. Don't even try guessing this if you're tone deaf.

Is it title song related? Casino Royale's is the only one in the group sung by a male?

Good guess, but no.
Another clue: mode.
Yet another clue: Roman Polanski would have really liked this one circa 1977.

Casino Royale is the only one of the title themes in a minor key?

Excellent! Let's see . . .
Trevor Howard, Roger Moore, Patrick McGoohan, David Niven, Cary Grant.

Correct!! Not approached or even considered, apparently. That seems to have been some retconning by Cubby et al.
You score, glidrose! Your turn!

Ian Fleming, Kingsley Amis, Christopher Wood, John Pearson, John Gardner, William Boyd.
Hint: CR'06 title song. Do we?

Kingsley Amis was never "actually" credited for writing anything Bond related ("Robert Markham", however, was)
Posted 23 December 2014 - 08:25 PM
Good, but not what I was looking for.
Hint: consider the author's entire known output. Bond and non-Bond.
Another hint: I'm stretching things a bit by including Fleming's own journalism.
Yet another hint: If we exclude Fleming's journalism, then he's one of two people in the list who are "odd ones out".
