There’s a mysterious character in Ratched on Netflix that looms large beneath the hospital where Mildred Ratched is rising through the ranks: Edmund Tolleson, the priest killer.
But while Murphy’s shows often draw from real life figures, it doesn’t seem like Edmund Tolleson is based on a real person.
Yes, Nurse Ratched is based on the person of the same name from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
The only thing I can come up with is that Edmund Tolleson is supposed to remind us of R. P. McMurphy, the protagonist to Ratched’s antagonist.
Like McMurphy, Edmund is committed to a psychiatric ward by law enforcement.
