Storylines[]

Tom is a paramedic who had appeared in 11 episodes since 3 October 2014. The character is initially unnamed until 30 October 2015. Inside Soap speculated that Tom could become a full-time character as he had been given a name, a friend in Sonia Fowler and less clothes to wear, referring to his scenes dressed as a gladiator.

In Tom's first appearance, he treats Phil Mitchell after he is shot by Shirley Carter. On New Year's Day 2015, he tends to a pregnant Ronnie Mitchell after she is injured in a car crash and she begs him to save her baby first over her. In April, he treats Kat Moon after she overdoses on painkillers in a suicide attempt. In October, along with his colleague, Holly, he takes Stacey Branning to hospital after she suffers an electric shock at her flat. In January 2016, Tom treats Charlie Slater when he suffers a heart attack, but he is unable to save Charlie and he dies. In March, Tom is called to The Queen Victoria pub when Ollie Carter stops breathing and suffers a seizure. In April, Tom takes part in the Walford half marathon dressed as a gladiator, running with nurse Sonia and her girlfriend Tina Carter. Tom helps give Tina first aid after she injures her ankle. Before Tom attends the Pride of Walford Awards, he gives Johnny Carter his mobile number. He then attends the awards where he, Sonia and their colleagues win an award after raising money for charity from the half marathon. He later treats Jane Beale after she is assaulted by her adoptive son Bobby Beale, who has beaten her with a hockey stick. Tom reveals to Jane's husband Ian Beale that she has suffered spinal injuries which are making breathing difficult and calls for spinal specialist surgeons to be ready at the hospital for their arrival. Tom then treats Babe Smith after she is locked in the freezer at The Queen Vic overnight, and rushes her to hospital.
