How the Society helped the makers of Johnny English Reborn

One of the more unusual requests for help that the Society received last year came from the makers of Johnny English Reborn. They told us that one of the characters in the film was a psychologist and that they needed our help in making her office look authentic.

Always pleased to help, we sent a large parcel of psychology journals off to the studio.

Given the way the film business works, it is quite possible that the scenes in the psychologist’s office ended up on the cutting room floor. But the reviews all say that Kate Sumner plays an “MI7 staff behavioural psychologist”.

So if you do go to see Johnny English Reborn please look out for our journals and let us know if they appear.

Whether they do or not, it is good that the makers knew who to approach for advice when it comes to anything related to psychology.
