ALL THINGS BEING EQUALIZED....

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.....

BBCnu!

Well, I've never seen an episode of 'Callan' yet over here. Read about it, but that doesn't give the same feel as actually watching it. I'll have to check Netflix; see if they have it. Maybe Guba.com.....

The black and white episodes are the best, but aren't available on DVD unfortunately. The ones on DVD do have the best Hunter (Callan's boss - like Number 2, the job title stays the same, but the guy in charge changes) but they have Cross instead of Meres. I forget if series four is out on DVD, but they do have Meres in them, but the stories got a little less hard-edged.

All the same, they're thoroughly recommended - Where Else I Could Go? is an absolute cracker of an episode, too. I'd recommend The Sandbaggers if you can find it, too - even better than Callan IMHO.
