Biography

Tom directed both series and the one-off special of the acclaimed BBC comedy This Country. The show was BAFTA-nominated and won three RTS Awards.

Tom’s previous credits include Hank Zipzer (International Emmy nominee) and Limbo for Hat Trick Productions and BBC. His short film, an understated black-comedy, Mickey & Michaela Bury Their Dad won the 2014 LOCO London Comedy Film Festival award for Best Short.

His approach combines directing with writing, story design and script editing wherever possible and according to the needs of each project.

[This Country] raises the comedic genre almost to an art form.
