Edward Woodward (1930 - 2009)

Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • King David (1985) [King Saul]: Commits suicide by stabbing himself with his sword on the battlefield. (Thanks to Aaron and Gordon)
  • Hot Fuzz (2007) [Tom Weaver]: Killed in an explosion when he gets trapped beneath an old nautical mine in the police impound, accidentally activating it.

TV Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • The Baron: Countdown (1967) [Arkin Morley]:  Accidentally impaled when he falls on an antique sword while fighting with Steve Forrest.
  • A Christmas Carol (1984) [Ghost of Christmas Present]: Following Dickens' novel, this ghost's "lifetime" on Earth only lasts as long as Christmas, so Edward vanishes at the stroke of 3 AM while speaking to George C. Scott. Since he's a supernatural being, this is probably not really a "death," but just the end of his earthly existence.

Noteworthy Connections[edit | edit source]

  • Ex-Mr. Venetia Barrett.
  • Father of Tim, Peter and Sarah Woodward.
