Tom is a lifelong fan of franchises including Doctor Who and Marvel, but Star Wars has become his area of specialism. He's always shown a deep interest in shared universes and transmedia projects, following Star Wars since the publication of the Thrawn trilogy in the early '90s.
Tom is engaged with pretty much every medium going: movies, TV shows, audiobooks, novels, comics, and even games. This makes him a good fit for Star Wars, one of the oldest transmedia franchises around, and he's absolutely loving Lucasfilm's High Republic initiative.
