Tom Price is a toughened criminal who is fearless and strong, As such he is able to kill without remorse. Largely through his relationship with Anya, becomes quite loyal to the group. He is not a conventional team player as he is always willing to fight to ensure his comfortable place within it. In Series 1 Tom says he was born in Salford. Throughout the series, it has been hinted that he may have had a previous military background, which possibly may have had direct or indirect connections to his incarceration.
Tom was serving a sentence of at least twenty years for murder in HM Prison Wandsworth when the virus struck. He and the rest of the prisoners were isolated in their cells under orders from the Prison Governor, to try to prevent the virus spreading, but it was no good. Eventually he found himself alone with the last surviving prison officer, Gary Wilson; the other prisoners and prison officers, along with prison physician Dr. Colin Thompson (and, presumably, the briefly-mentioned but unseen Prison Governor), having all died. In spite of the fact that prison rules and regulations now no longer applied, Wilson refused to release Tom who, as far as he was concerned, was still a prisoner of Her Majesty's Government. Gary resented the fact that Tom had survived the virus, and was determined to do his duty and ensure that his prisoner served the remainder of his sentence. Tom escaped after killing Gary and made his way home, only to discover that his mother had died from the virus. After retrieving a bag containing money and a pistol, he moves on, eventually getting picked up by a couple who pass by him. While looking for snacks, the woman looks in his bag and finds his gun. A struggle ensues, with Tom getting sprayed in the face with hair spray and shoved out of the moving vehicle onto the road. He is found by Anya, who pulls him from the road and cleans his head wounds. Soon after, Greg and Abby arrive, and he joins them with Anya. His stone faced mannerisms and total lack of concern quickly put him at odds with all of the group, though they don't hesistate to call upon him to defend them when needed. He develops protective feelings towards Abby and definately has a bond with Anya, but remains outwardly cold and ruthless to all observers.

While escorting Anya and Al to retrieve medical supplies, the building they are in collapses and he is faced with the seemingly insurmountable problem of rescuing them. His feelings for Anya are obvious as he pulls her from the rubble, but he is left on the edge of the group again. As the series progresses, he clashes with Greg as his past crimes and violent tendencies are questioned, culminating in his trial by Samantha. Throughout it all, Tom keeps one eye on an exit, and the other on Anya, hoping he can gain her affection. In episode 6, Tom is told to find Peter and he does, but Whittaker convinces Peter that Tom is lying about his mother and only wants to hurt him. Peter shoots Tom, Whittaker declares him dead and they flee. However, Tom is only knocked out. When he comes to, he rushes to the airfield in time to assist the group in retrieving Peter from Landry. During the confusion Tom manages to sneak onto Landry's plane, leaving the rest frantically hunting for him.
