Andy Wood is the husband of Jan Wood, and father to Matt and Harry Wood. He and Jan have known each other for twenty-two years. By profession, Andy is an opera singer with the English National Opera (ENO) and is described as having a wonderful and powerful voice. Matt considers his father's side of the family to be more musical and artistic compared to the more brainy and bookish types on Jan's side of the family.
In his youth, he played rugby and Matt notices that he and his father share a similar build. However, to protect his throat and chest for singing, Andy has given up rugby. A broad man at six foot three, frequently with a full beard, Andy's appearance does not give away his job and only a few of Matt's closest friends know that his father is a singer. In City of Secrets, Andy is involved in a production of The Magic Flute as a member of its chorus, though he is annoyed at the leading soprano playing the the Queen of the Night for complaining to the conductor that the chorus is too loud.
Because of Andy's job, he has unusual working hours. Often staying at home until mid-afternoon, he goes to sing with the ENO before returning home in the late evening to have a very late supper. As a result, he does not get up early. However, this means that he is usually available to accompany Matt during practice driving sessions.
