He has also appeared in a recurring role as police officer Andy Davidson in a number of episodes of Torchwood, a spin-off from the long running science fiction series Doctor Who. In 2008 he starred in the BBC Three sketch show The Wrong Door and filmed the role of Darrin Stephens in a pilot UK remake of Bewitched, which never got aired. Other TV appearances include Doctors (2009) and Secret Diary of a Call Girl (2010). Tom also features in Renault TV's program The Key.

He took his debut stand-up show, Say When, to the Edinburgh Festival in 2011,[5] and a reviewer described his comedic style as "easygoing, good-natured autobiographical".[6]
