- "Angel! Don't you go bein' a twat now."
- ―Andy Wainwright
He routinely patronised Nicholas and took an instant dislike to Angel as soon as he arrived in Sandford, and was shown to be inept as a detective; unable to analyse crime scenes and prioritising visits to the pub over collecting evidence. He later accused Angel of murdering Leslie Tiller due to his 'obsession' with murder.
During the shootout when Nicholas returns to Sandford, Wainwright donned riot gear with the rest of the Sandford Police Service and attempted to arrest Angel and Danny Butterman. However, after being convinced of the Neighbourhood Watch Alliance's crimes, he turned on Frank Butterman and joined forces with Danny and Nicholas. During the shootout at Somerfield, he was almost shot in the face (however the red was actually Dolmio pasta sauce).
