Andrew Irving

An MD who likes getting his hands dirty. Even after 25 years Andrew still relishes the nuts and bolts of the research process. Sensitive, intuitive, with an incisive, analytical mind. Surprisingly good with all sorts of people,

from drug addicts to duchesses. Despite his years, Saga will have to wait a bit longer before he’s ready to join them.


Rescuing and restoring abandoned furniture, Arsenal Football Club (when they’re winning), getting to grips with the Internet (but word processing is still a bridge too far).
