The key to popular success, without sacrificing his family – he had two sons and one daughter by his first wife, Venetia Collett (the actor Venetia Barrett) – seemed to be television. Noël Coward once said of him, "He was one of the nicest and most co-operative actors I've ever met or worked with. In 1980 Woodward co-directed and played in a tour of The Beggar's Opera (Birmingham Rep, 1979), and at the Ludlow Festival he won wide praise as Richard III – The Daily Telegraph's critic hailing his "emotional complexities and psychological depths". 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. Every now and again he and his brother would get access to the galleries before they opened to the public.

They had two sons: Tim Woodward (1953–2023) and Peter Woodward (born 1956), both of whom became actors, as well as a daughter, the Tony Award-nominated actress Sarah Woodward (born 1963). Staying in the northern Cyprus town of Kyrenia, he was one of several Britons evacuated from the island by the Royal Navy aircraft carrier, HMS Hermes following the Turkish invasion and occupation of Kyrenia. Though he continued to perform right up until his death in 2009, Woodward was forever associated with "The Equalizer," a show he once considered silly, but nonetheless brought him considerable acclaim.

A stint as a shorthand typist for a sanitary engineers followed, before he went to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art at 16 and appeared on stage at Castle theatre, Farnham, in 1946. However, the 1967 dramatisation enjoyed a high profile at the time, and it featured several leading actors of that era, including Ronald Fraser, Freddie Jones, Vivian Pickles, Nicholas Courtney, and James Villiers.

Unframed art giclée print, printed on 310gsm fine art archival matte paper, made from 100% cotton, using pigment inks for longevity. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), Woodward began his career on stage, and throughout his career he appeared in productions in both the West End in London and on Broadway in New York.Although it proved to be short-lived, it led the following year to his much more successful ITV true crime drama documentary series In Suspicious Circumstances, in which he guided viewers through some of the most celebrated British crimes of the 20th century.

His subsequent West End roles included John Evans in Doctor in the House (Victoria Palace Theatre, 1956), Captain Yule in The High Bid (Mermaid Theatre, 1967), the Duke of Bristol in On Approval (Haymarket Theatre, 1975) and Jaspar Tudor in The Dark House (Comedy Theatre, 1978).
