Toby Whithouse is an English actor, stand-up comedian and screenwriter. His highest-profile work has been the creation of the BBC Three supernatural television series Being Human. He also created the Channel 4 television drama series No Angels, and has written for BBC One's Hotel Babylon and Doctor Who. One of his Doctor Who episodes, titled "School Reunion", featured the return of the robot dog K-9 and 1970s companion Sarah Jane Smith. After initially attending art college in his home town of Southend, Whithouse decided to drop out of the course and turn to acting as a profession. He was a regular in the early 1990s BBC One drama series The House of Eliott, and also appeared on stage in the West End, co-starring with Gene Wilder in Laughter on the 23rd Floor by Neil Simon in 1997. Frustrated at what he perceived as a lack of quality in many of the scripts he was sent to read, Whithouse took to writing in his spare time between acting roles, eventually writing a play Jump Mr. Malinoff, Jump which won the Verity Bargate Award. The play was performed as the opening production of the Soho Theatre in Dean Street, London. Following this he gained his first television work, writing an episode for the ITV drama series Where the Heart Is.
