Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Featuring an electrifying performance from Edward Woodward, Callan explored the dingy twilight world of the professional spy and presented what was, until that point, television s most realistic portrayal of government espionage - becoming a national phenomenon in the 1960s and making Woodward one of the highest profile actors on television. This single play, originally aired in 1981 and scripted by series creator/writer James Mitchell, saw the reluctant killer pressed into service one last time. Reuniting Callan and his malodorous sidekick, Lonely (Russell Hunter), the play also stars George Sewell, Hugh Walters (as Hunter), Anthony Smee and Helen Bourne. Ten years on, David Callan hasn’t changed much. Retirement has brought a new identity, a new mistress, and a new business in the form of a militaria shop; but he finds that once a secret-service operative, always a secret-service operative when a call summons him to headquarters and a meeting with the fourth Hunter of his career - a past Callan thought dead and buried. Reactiviating it is no pleasure - but it has to be done.

Callan's Final Mission - The Wet Job

Ever wondered what happened to Callan in retirement? The Wet Job explores issues surrounding undercover agents and how they never truly stop being an agent. Edward Woodward is as intense and masterful as he was in the early episodes. He really is a terrific actor as demonstrated in this episode. Well worth watching and gaining closure with the character of Callan. I love this series and really believe that this is an authentic look at Post-Cold War Britain and life as an agent.
