    Good actor, especially in The Wicker Man. Not a bad singer, either. I also recall him in his early role as a spy, but my bloody memory fails me ..................nope, it's back! Callan.
     
  4. Indeed, truly a "Red file for Callan" today...

    Why does Edward Woodward have so many "d"s in his name? Because if he didn't he would be called Ewar Woowar...top bloke.
     
  5. Edward Woodward as nev in "Common as muck" Great actor.
     
  6. RIP .......... Ewar Woowar

    wooden or wicker coffin :?: :wink: :?: :wink:

    Following the passing of an actor famed for his role in the Wicker Man, a commerative mahogany plaque is to be placed in the area of the Royal Cornwall Hospital where he spent his final moments.

    Or would 'Wood for the Edward Woodward ward' do :?:
     
  7. RIP......Fart In A Bath.









    Think about it.
     
  8. RIP fella. A damned fine British actor if ever there was one.
     
  9. RIP

    Rule 303
     
  10. A really outstanding actor. Very talented and well respected on both sides on the big pond.
     
  11. Sgt Wellbeloved in stand up virgin soldiers!

    I presume given his age he was a national serviceman?

    Great actor, RIP
     
  12. The Equalizer was the one thing we always watched on a monday?.. on BFBS in Germany, before hitting the NAAFI of course.

    Great days
     

  13. A great actor (I think it was Gielgud who called him 'Fart in the Bath' - he said that's what Edward Woodward sounded like.)

    Callan - Nails. Gave Toby Meers a good hiding a few times.
     
  14. can't find any info - it looks like his call ups cards never arrived
     
  15. Oh, I thought it was all about equalizing pressure? :roll:
