Every day this week, in the run-up to the release of the new James Bond movie Casino Royale, we are holding a vote to find out the most popular bits of past Bond films. Which one can your ultimate 007 movie not do without?

Today, we are looking at the villains.

With their henchmen, secret bases and plans for world domination, the villain helps define a Bond movie.
