Tommy Clifford first appeared 23 March 2009. He is portrayed by Edward Woodward.
Tommy is a man who is interested in Patrick Trueman. He is a neighbour of researcher Theo Kelly, who has already met Chelsea Fox and confirmed that she lives with Patrick Trueman. Together they want to meet with Patrick and ask him about the 1958 Notting Hill race riots. He makes friends with Patrick, claiming to be an author writing about the riots.
However, it is revealed that Tommy is not an author and he was racist back then. He sincerely apologises and cries when Patrick realises Tommy is the person who started a fire that killed Patrick's fiancée, Ruth. He then goes on to reveal that the reason he is confessing now is because he is dying from kidney failure and does not have long left to live.
Patrick refuses to forgive Tommy, but Libby Fox says that Tommy deserves a chance to explain himself and that Patrick should visit him. He tells her to mind her own business but she later visits Tommy only to find he has been admitted to hospital. Patrick goes with Denise Wicks to visit Tommy in hospital, where Tommy begs for forgiveness, but when he mentions Ruth, Patrick storms out. Denise tells Patrick that the nurse said Tommy will most likely not make it through the night, so decides to go back in and forgive Tommy, who dies with Patrick by his side on 23 April 2009.
