Wood, who plays unhinged Max Branning, is dramatically mown down by a speeding car next week in a hit-and-run, sparking a whodunnit across the Square involving a seemingly endless list of suspects.
Of the script featuring his stunt, he said: "I was absolutely delighted with it. Simon Ashdown's scripts are always an exciting read - you can never put it down. They're real page-turners. He's an amazing writer, a master of his craft. Each time a storyline comes to a head, Simon always delivers. I feel that there's a responsibility as an actor to do his scripts justice."
Earlier this year, Wood became a father for a second time after his wife Alison gave birth to son Buster. He also has a three-year-old daughter, Amber.
Speaking of fatherhood, he added: "It's fantastic; incredibly busy, but happy. It's always a balance between work and home life, but it couldn't be better at the moment."
