Woodward was a prominent endorser of the Labour Party in the 1970 general election, featuring in publicity material. Woodward played the uptight, strongly religious police sergeant, Howie, sent to a remote Scottish island to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a young girl. He also appeared in the 1982 film Who Dares Wins, also known as The Final Option [ citation needed] on the film's release history. Woodward was the subject of This Is Your Life on two occasions; in February 1971, he was surprised by Eamonn Andrews in the bar of London's White House Hotel, [ citation needed] and in February 1995, Michael Aspel surprised him during a photoshoot at Syon House in West London. His career continued with TV guest-star roles, including an appearance in The New Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Mr.

His last lead film role was that of the Reverend Frederick Densham in A Congregation of Ghosts, the story of an eccentric vicar who is said to have alienated his congregation and preached to cardboard cut-outs. Later in the season, Woodward resumed his full duties and carried the show through a fourth season during 1988-1989.

Woodward was finally granted some attention in the States at age 55, earning his own popular series, the noirish espionage series The Equalizer (1985). His collaboration with photographer Tim Bret Day for the Harvey Nichols campaign, HN on Earth is in the permanent poster collection at the Louvre, Paris.

Woodward was born in Croydon, then in Surrey, and as a child was bombed out of his home three times during the second world war. From a cast of hundreds of local actors, Joseph McManners and Thomas James Longley also featured with smaller speaking roles. He made occasional appearances until taking the role of Police Sergeant Neil Howie in the thriller The Wicker Man in 1973.He attributed his ability to radiate personal danger, the suggestion of a hidden precipice within him, to the danger in which he lived in the war.

But he explained that at the Old Vic – where the National Theatre was then located – he would have the right to fail, a concept foreign to the Americans, whose attitude was "enough to drive anyone right round the bend".
