Toby Zed
Also known as:
Race: Human
Home Planet: Earth
Home Era: 42nd century
Appearances: DW: The Impossible Planet, The Satan Pit
Actor: Will Thorp

Tobias Zed was the Walker Expedition's archaeologist. He laboured at discovering the nameless script found on the planet orbiting the black hole designated K37 Gem 5.


Zed first heard the voice of the Beast which then possessed him. Using Toby as his vessel, the Beast viciously murdered Scooti Manista, another member of the crew after she found him outside, by trapping her in a section and causing a hull breach. Toby then rushed to join the others to avoid the hull breach. Toby told no one that he killed Scooti. To his relief, the manifestations of the Beast's presence vanished from his body. (DW: The Impossible Planet)

Through "freed", the Beast remained free to possess Zed. As the Walker Expedition rocket left the planet with Rose Tyler on board, the Beast manifested itself in his person. Rose unbuckled his seatbelt and used the bolt gun to smash the window. An emergency window prevented the ship from de-pressurising and Toby flew through space, into the black hole. (DW: The Satan Pit)

Special abilities and features whilst possessed

While the Beast took him over, Toby's irises turned red and the script appeared on his body. He could survive vacuum unscathed (DW: The Impossible Planet), spoke with the voice of the Beast and could issue flame from his mouth. (DW: The Satan Pit).


Toby Zed had a quiet manner, though Rose also upbraided him for his dramatic nature. He revealed signs of mental instability in some of the graffiti he had written on the base walls: fragments of Krop Tor and possibly (unless someone else wrote those words) the message WELCOME TO HELL. 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 already into his twenties, was still a virgin. (DW: The Satan Pit)
