Tom Chadbon (born 27 February 1946) is an English actor, who has spent the larger part of his career appearing on British television. While principally a character actor, he has occasionally had leading or recurring roles.
Among his more regular work, he helmed all 10 episodes of 1995's Crown Prosecutor, playing the almost-titular Lenny Monk. He also enjoyed substantial recurring roles in Chancer, The Liver Birds, Where the Heart Is, and Wire in the Blood.
Chadbon was born in Luton. The majority of his career has been spent building a long résumé of featured guest work on a large number of British television shows, including: Out of the Unknown, The Stone Tape, Softly, Softly, Blake's 7, Tales of the Unexpected, The New Statesman, Between the Lines, Peak Practice, Casualty, Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, Silent Witness, The Bill, Holby City, Heartbeat, Foyle's War, Midsomer Murders, Rebecca, and Taggart.
The guest role seen by the largest number of people, however, was that of Duggan in the Doctor Who serial City of Death. He would later return to Doctor Who as Merdeen in the 1986 story, The Trial of a Time Lord. He has also been an occasional guest star in Big Finish audio productions. Most notably, he played the recurring character of Will in the second series of Sarah Jane Smith audio adventures. He also had a featured guest role in No More Lies, during Paul McGann's 2007 broadcast season on BBC Radio 7.
Though his film work has been more sparse he had a role as one of the werewolf suspects in the 1974 horror film The Beast Must Die, and also made appearances in The Alf Garnett Saga (1972), Juggernaut (1974), Tess (1979), Dance with a Stranger (1985), Shooting Fish (1997), and as a stockbroker in the 2006 James Bond film, Casino Royale.
He plays a semi-regular character, Professor Henry Williams, in the 23rd series of Casualty.
