Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Geoffrey "Tom" Barnaby (born 20 April 1943) is a fictional detective created by Caroline Graham and was one of the main characters in the ITV drama Midsomer Murders.

Tom Barnaby first appears in the programme's first episode The Killings at Badger's Drift and last appears in Fit for Murder, an episode broadcast on 2 February 2011, which is the final episode of the thirteenth series. He states in an episode called Picture of Innocence that his birthday is 20 April 1943. He is married to Joyce Barnaby, played by Jane Wymark and has a daughter called Cully, played by Laura Howard. He appeared in 81 episodes before handing over to his cousin John (Neil Dudgeon). He is assisted in every episode by a sergeant. He has three sergeants throughout his tenure, Gavin Troy; 1997-2003, Daniel Scott; 2003-2005 and Benjamin Jones; 2005-2011.

Tom and Joyce enjoy attending village activities such as fund raising fetes, amateur theatrical productions, art shows, musical performances and such. Unfortunately, their afternoon or evenings "out" are frequently interrupted by a murder (or two). The same thing seems to happen when daughter Cully joins them.
