Toby Weeks is an Inspector Spacetime fan who became friends with Abed over the internet due to their mutual love of the show. They meet for the first time face-to-face at the "InspecTicon", a fan convention in honor of the British TV show. His first appearance was in the Season Four episode "Conventions of Space and Time". He is portrayed by actor/comedian Matt Lucas.
In the study group's fourth year at Greendale, Abed met online a fellow Inspector Spacetime fan named Toby Weeks. He worked as a banker somewhere in Nigeria and Abed described him to Troy as the biggest Inspector Spacetime fan in the world. They had been e-mailing each other for months and become close discussing the intricacies of the show. Toby and Abed agreed to meet in person at the Colorado Inspecticon convention. When Toby ran into some financial difficulties Abed lent him seven hundred pounds for the trip.
