Tom Davis was the British Prime Minister of 2009. Public approval of Davis has been mix at best, with one tabloid magazine questioning his mental faculties ("Tom Davis: A Nutter Too Far?").
Tom Davis was a character based on Gordon Brown in the British comedy programme, The Thick of It. Davis became Prime Minister in between the second and third seasons. Like Gordon Brown, Davis took over the role of Prime Minister without winning an election, and despite persistent whispers about his mental health and the threat of other potential leadership candidates. Noticeably, Tom Davis was among several offscreen-only characters, in which in Century shows a magazine with a cover of Davis with nothing but a question mark on his face.
