Tom Abbott
Species: Human
Place of origin: Earth
Appearance: The Hand of Fear
Main actor: David Purcell
Abbott was the foreman of a blasting crew working in a quarry in England. While he was setting up an explosion, the Doctor's TARDIS materialised in the area, and the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith stepped outside, failing to realise the danger they were in until it was too late. Although they escaped serious injury, the blast brought Eldrad's hand back to the surface, which then took possession of Sarah Jane. After taking her to a nearby hospital, the Doctor, curious about the hand, returned to question Abbott about the quarry. (TV: The Hand of Fear)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • Abbott's name was never given on-screen, only in the credits. In the novelisation, he was given the first name of Tom.
