Tom Goodman-Hill

Tom Goodman-Hill (born 1968, Enfield) is an English actor of radio, film, stage and television.

Early life

Born as Tom Hill and brought up near Newcastle upon Tyne, he qualified as a teacher before turning to acting. During his time in Newcastle, he regularly acted in amateur performances at the People's Theatre.

He earned a BA in Drama and English with a teaching qualification from the University of Warwick, where he took an active role in student drama. He spent a year as a supply teacher in Coventry before moving to London to pursue a full-time acting career.[1]



Goodman-Hill is known for playing the Police Constable in Ideal. He appeared as Jeff in Jonathan Creek's episode "Miracle in Crooked Lane", an episode of Murder in Mind, Series 5 of BBC One's Hustle as Alfie Baron, and the Reverend Golightly in Doctor Who episode "The Unicorn and the Wasp".

He has had recurring parts in several comedies, including The Office as Ray, Broken News and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

In 2008, Goodman-Hill played John Lilburne in Channel 4's period drama, The Devil's Whore. Goodman-Hill can trace his father's family back to Lilburne's Uncle Joseph, through 16 generations.[2] In 2011 he played "Neil Hunter" in drama Case Histories starring Jason Isaacs, and in 2011 in Spy. In 2013, Goodman-Hill played Mr Roger Grove in the ITV1 series Mr Selfridge and Dr Mawsley in The Thirteenth Tale for the BBC.


Goodman-Hill has played numerous roles in various BBC Radio 4 productions, including: Jesus in Witness: Five Plays from the Gospel of Luke; Anton in Another Case of Milton Jones; Ron, the security guard, in Self-Storage; Archie in Hut 33; I, Claudius; Martin in the third series of Cabin Pressure,[3] and Mason in My First Planet.[4]


Goodman-Hill started his professional career in the theatre. He has since appeared in productions such as Pete and Dud: Come Again, as Peter Cook, and The Cosmonaut's Last Message To The Woman He Once Loved In The Former Soviet Union as Eric. He received an Laurence Olivier Award nomination for the Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical for his performance as Sir Lancelot (and other roles, mostly those played by John Cleese in the original film Monty Python and the Holy Grail), in the London production of Spamalot.

In 2009, he played Andrew Fastow, the former real-life CFO of Enron in Lucy Prebble's ENRON at Chichester and the Royal Court Theatre. The production transferred to the Noel Coward Theatre in January 2010 and in the interim he replaced Mark Gatiss in Darker Shores at the Hampstead Theatre during December 2009.[5]

He is a patron of Scene & Heard.

Personal life

Goodman-Hill has two teenage children from his marriage to Kerry Bradley. After meeting during the 2010 National Theatre's production of Earthquakes in London, presently lives with his partner of three years, Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine.[6]
