Edward Woodward has died aged 79, in the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro. Press reports he was suffering from various illnesses. I remember him in Callan. Always enjoyed his performances. Sad.

Sadly another great one gone. I'll never forget him as "Callan" and he made marvellous movies. "The Wicker Man" (1973) and "Breaker Morant" (1978) based on the life of Harry Morant (1865 - 1902), English born Australian soldier. One of his most famous lines in that film was when he was asked what rule did he use he replied "Rule 303 bloody 3". At peace.

It is mostly for Breaker Morant that I will remember him; absolutely convincing, though you could always rely on him for a decent performance. He had a good singing voice too, as demonstrated in more than one of his films.

I find that there are a few certain actors whose presence in a cast list will draw me to something I might not otherwise have chosen, because I know they will rarely touch rubbish. He was one of that group. Sorry to see him gone.

Like most others here, I recall first seeing him in Callan. Breaker Morant was excellent and he also led the cast in a fine futuristic drama, which was set in a Fascist Britain. I believe his character was called "Kyle" or something like that. He was a fine actor and I am sad to hear of his passing.

Ahh, I'm afraid whatever other good works he's done, he'll be forever cast as Summerisle's Sacrificial King for a Day for me.
What a pity the prudes at YouTube can't cope with a pair of titties.. Virginal Woodward, utterly beside himself with physical desire at 3:18, is priceless.

Sad news - it brought back memories for me of sitting in the TV lounge at college in Aberystwyth in the 70's at one in the morning with my best friend Vida and watching Callan; of watching the Equalizer (I have the videos of the series, and was in the process of transferring them to DVD to watch only last week); of Breaker Morant - a stunning film; of his singing, and of watching him and one of his sons in a historical play here in Guildford (written by Rosemary Sissons) ... and more recently of the pair of them in an episode of "Crusade" , a spinoff from Babylon 5. An actor for all seasons ...

Edward Woodward was a great actor and a gentleman to boot. He came to Chislehurst caves once years ago and I took him round on a tour. He was a interesting man to talk too and he gave me a £5.00 tip at the end of the tour.

I remember Callan with fondness - I had a huge crush on Edward Woodward as Callan in the late 60s. Breaker Morant and Wicker Man were both excellent, too. I have an LP of Edward singing as Sidney Carton in the musical stage show "A tale of two cities" - I recently transferred it to CD. A great actor an excellent singer. RIP EW x

It would be fitting, though not appropriate, to hold the funeral in a gigantic effigy in the Shetlands.

An excellent actor, will be much missed.
