Tommy Alfred Charles Moon is the son of Michael Moon and Kat Mitchell, although he was adopted and raised by Kat's ex-husband and Michael's cousin Alfie Moon.

While Kat was married to Alfie, the pair briefly split up when Alfie was sent to prison for six months. Kat ended up sleeping with Alfie’s cousin Michael and became pregnant with a son. Despite this, Alfie choose to forgive Kat when the pair decided to give their marriage another go and Alfie wowed to raise the baby as his own. When baby Tommy was born, Michael didn't not want any involvement in his son's life and wasn't around, so Alfie adopted Tommy and signed his birth certificate; raising Tommy as his own son. Michael didn't play any fatherly role in Tommy's life and only took notice and cared for his daughter Scarlett Moon until his death. Tommy didn't have any idea that Alfie was not his biological father until September 2021 when Kat revealed that Scarlett was in fact Tommy's sister, not his cousin.

Meanwhile, Ronnie Branning discovers that her son, James Branning, who was born on the same day as Tommy, has died of sudden infant death syndrome and desperately tries to get help. When she hears Tommy crying, she sneaks into The Queen Victoria and decides to swap the children. Ronnie eventually regrets her actions but by the time she decides to swap them back, James has been found by Alfie. Meanwhile, Jack has returned to the country and meets Tommy, thinking he is James. When Kat sees the baby in the hospital, she refuses to believe it is Tommy as he looks different, but Alfie convinces her it is because he has died. When a midwife visits Ronnie, she is surprised at how quickly James's club foot appears to have gone. Ronnie is denied access to the funeral by Kat but goes anyway, hiding behind a tree. She later realises she has to put an end to the situation and takes Tommy back to Kat during the wake.
