He explained to the Doctor and Rose what the Walker Expedition was looking for, showing the pair some pottery and the ancient script of Krop Tor. As the Expedition's excavations reached their late stages, Toby kept hearing the voice of the Beast, which eventually possessed him. While possessed, Toby ventured outside onto the planet's surface.
Later, Scooti Manista, another member of the crew, heard him leave when she was dropping off some paperwork. She found him outside the base, surviving in deep vacuum without a spacesuit. Toby grinned and gestured to her. She raised her arm towards him, hypnotized. However, she eventually broke his hold on her and yelled at him to stop. Angered, Zed began to break the window. Scooti tried to escape, but Toby had sealed the doors, trapping her. Soon the window shattered and Scooti was dragged out into space screaming.
Toby quickly joined the others to avoid the hull breach. Toby told no one that he killed Scooti. After Ida and the Doctor went down, he was repossessed and also possessed the Ood. They began killing off the crew. (TV: The Impossible Planet)
Though Toby was "freed", the Beast remained free to possess him if it wished. As the Walker Expedition rocket left the planet with Rose on board, the Beast manifested itself in him. Rose unbuckled his seatbelt and used a Bolt Gun to smash the window. An emergency window prevented the ship from de-pressurising and Toby flew through space, into the black hole and to his death, taking the Beast with him. After his death he was awarded posthumous honours by Captain Zachary Cross Flane.(TV: The Satan Pit)
Toby Zed had a quiet manner, though Rose also upbraided him for his dramatic nature. While attempting to use the personal fears and weaknesses of the Doctor, the crew and Rose against them, the Beast revealed to the others that Toby, already into his twenties, was a virgin. (TV: The Satan Pit)
