Tom, Series 5
Tom Thomas is the Mountain Rescue Centre owner who hails from Australia. He is mainly seen flying Wallaby 1, his Search and Rescue helicopter (Wallaby 2 from Alien Alert onwards) or driving his yellow 4x4.
In Series 6, Tom helps the fire brigade with emergencies more often, mostly having a few non-speaking roles, like in the episodes Poorly Penny, Three Legged Race and Danger by the Double. In this series, he is shown to be a good abseiler, as demonstrated in the episodes Fireworks for Mandy and Pontypandy Extreme.
In Series 5, Tom is generally a kind person, similar to most of the other characters and in Series 6, he is also shown to be a bit cocky and competitive, as seen in the episode, Sausages vs. Shrimps. He is also shown to be 'animal mad', just like Bronwyn, as seen in Cry Wolf and Perilous Path.
- Hair: Blonde
- Eyes: Blue
- Friends: Everyone in Pontypandy
Tom has blonde hair, blue eyes and wears an orange rescue outfit with beige boots. He wears sunglasses some of the time. In Series 6, Tom is slightly taller than Elvis, and his hair is thicker. His sunglasses have changed design too, having black visors that completely go over his eyes, as identified in the picture above. He mostly wears them when he's in his helicopter, but the Series 6 episode Cat Magic was where he wore them whilst driving his 4x4.
- Tom has his own theme in Series 5 whenever he takes off in Wallaby 1, however ever since Series 6 it has been absent.
- In Twitchers in Trouble his theme sounds slightly different.
- Tom has needed to be rescued several times throughout the program for example when in Series 8's King of the Mountain when he got tangled in some ropes in a tree branch that was about to snap, Series 11's The Prince In Pontypandy when he had injured his shoulder, Series 10's Float Your Boat when he fell asleep on a dingy and drifted out to see and in Heroes of the Storm for multiple reasons.
