Very late on this one, and quite frankly … Mr. Woodward deserves better.
Yes, the great Edward Woodward has died at the age of 79.
Woodward went all out to make television the respectable dramatic medium it now is (back when most movie actors wouldn’t deign to appear on the box) and brought his intense trademark gravity into every role he played.
And let’s never forget the old joke:
Why does Edward Woodward have so many ‘D’s in his name?
Because if he didn’t, he’d be Ewar Woowar.
And we couldn’t have that. Edward Woodward, rest in peace.
