Todd first found fame in the BBC children's drama Grange Hill, in which he played Tucker Jenkins, but is probably best known today for his long-running role in BBC1's Eastenders as Mark Fowler. He left the series in 2003, moving to ITV to play psychopathic policeman Gabriel Kent in The Bill.
Todd is a versatile actor who is highly respected throughout the profession, not just for his television work but also for many roles in the theatre - from straight drama to pantomime - as well as film parts (The Black Velvet Band, Treasure of Albion, The School That Roared), radio plays (Les Misérables; The Three Loves Of Ida Bliss, Wavelength, Midweek, The London Particulars, Bringing Eddie Home, The Chocolate Frigate), voiceovers, commercials, and narrations (Paddington Green, Scene In New York, The Fame Game, Driving Mum Crazy, Snapshot-Eddie Kidd, The Jungle Creatures, and many more).
Todd and his partner, actress/writer and film producer Dina Clarkin, run a film production company called Swordfish Productions. In 2007, Todd made his directorial debut as director of several episodes of the BBC's daytime soap opera, Doctors, and in 2010 he directed his first feature film, The Perfect Burger (2010), set in the Leicestershire town of Hinckley. 2013 saw Todd editing an anthology of short stories inspired by some of the best known plotlines of Eastenders, which was published by Penguin Books.
