Billy Hartman plays Gordon Brown

For 16 years, Billy Hartman was a regular in living rooms across the UK.

As Terry Woods in Emmerdale, we watched as he went through the usual gamut of soap excess, from extra-marital affairs, to being suspected of murder, only to be killed off, a hero, as he tried to rescue others from a fire, in 2011.

Even now, Terry Woods remains the 20th longest serving character in the soap’s 42-year history.

It’s one of the reasons that, when he took to the stage of the Traverse last night, in The Confessions of Gordon Brown, it was be the first time Hartman had trod the boards in his homeland in quarter of a century.
