Edward Woodward will be joining the British soap opera 'EastEnders'. As Tommy Clifford, he'll be in a specific story involving Patrick Trueman. His participation on the show will last only a few weeks.
Sure, he's Tommy Clifford in this, but wouldn't it have been great if he showed up as Robert McCall, 'The Equalizer'?
The head honcho for 'EastEnders', Diederick Santer said about the Tommy Clifford character:
"On the surface, this is a warm, charming and engaging man, but there are other much darker things going on."
I imagine his full story, with all those darker things, will be told before his sojourn on the show ends. But if there is some mystery about his true identity left after he leaves - unless he exits feet first - maybe we can assume he really was McCall.
We'll just have to wait and view.....
