Tommy in the Halloween Franchise

Tommy Doyle and Lindsay Wallace

As a child, the eight year old Tommy Doyle, victim of bullying, was always afraid of the ‘’Boogeyman’’. The nigh of Halloween of 1978 he, Laurie Strode and his friend Lindsay Wallace were attacked by the insane Michael Myers, having  a whole night of terror by the shape who he claimed was the Boogeyman. All of them survived the murderers thanks to Michael´s former psychiatrist Doctor Sam Loomis but that fear followed them the rest of their lives.

Sixteen years later, as an adult, after an insane growing obsession, the now 25 year old Tommy Doyle crossed ways once again with Michael, after took Michael’s grandnephew in the bus station. Doyle joined Loomis to defeat Myers and after discover some answers to Michael’s past (linked to a druidic cult) and ‘’defeat’’ him, he left Loomis who had unfinished business with Michael and escaped with the baby, Kara and Danny Strode.

Haunted by memories

In 2000, stilling being haunted by the memory of the serial killer, Tommy wanted to write a book about Michael and obtained the diaries of Dr. Loomis where Loomis related his first years with the young Michael. While he was reading them he was attacked by Michael. 

Michael escaped and Doyle tried to follow him but he only found former Haddonfield Sheriff, Leigh Brackett. After a little chat they were captured by the druidic cult who used to help Michael by covering him. Michael found them and killed Brackett but the police blamed Tommy and sent him to Smith´s Grove-Warren County Sanatorium, the same insane asylum where Michael´s evil blossomed.

Old friends

One year later Tommy, who was beginning to become a little crazy, escaped before he were sacrificed. Then he met Lindsay Wallace, his old friend who with him and Laurie survived that night back in 1978. She was now a reporter and was searching the true story of Michael Myers who last year was ´´decapitated´´ by Laurie Strode.

They were attacked and in the Myers House after Tommy saved Lindsay, they discovered that he really was Laurie Strode who was disappeared. Laurie attacked Tommy and they both fell from the second floor.
