Sgt Tom Osgood was a UNIT technical officer who served under Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.

Osgood joined UNIT shortly before the Third Doctor's arrival, as a corporal. He was the most technically proficient UNIT soldier. Although he admitted that he was out of his depth where the Doctor and Miss Shaw were concerned. (PROSE: The Eye of the Giant)

After he was promoted to sergeant, he was called in to assist in the rescue of the Doctor, Jo Grant, Sergeant Benton and Captain Yates. With the Doctor's help, he devised a way to get past the heat barrier surrounding Devil's End. (TV: The Dæmons)

Soon after this, Osgood became engaged to a woman named Becky, whom he met at a folk festival. (PROSE: Dancing the Code)

In 2001 Osgood was a civilian in his fifties. He was brought in to help UNIT and the Sixth Doctor with an alien incursion. (PROSE: The Shadow in the Glass)

Osgood was invited by the Eighth Doctor to have Christmas dinner at the Brigadier's house. (PROSE: Faithful Friends: Part 3)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • Osgood's first name was not given on-screen, only in the novel The Eye of the Giant.
  • Osgood shares the same surname as the personal assistant of the UNIT Head of Scientific Research in the early 21st century. Both also sport similar thick rimmed glasses. In DWM 484, Steven Moffat admitted his intention when writing was for Osgood to be the daughter of Tom Osgood. However, he did not want to state this definitively in the script so fans were left open to their own interpretations.
