Philip Gilbert (March 29, 1931 – January 6, 2004) was a Canadian actor, perhaps best known for his role as TIM in the original version of The Tomorrow People from 1973 to 1979, being one of only two actors (the other being Nicholas Young) to remain with the series throughout its entire run.

Gilbert returned to play TIM in 2001 for the audio plays produced by Big Finish Productions and continued the role until his death, starting with The New Gods up to and including The Power of Fear.

He had many film and television roles in his long career. By the end of his life, he was represented by Nicholas Young's theatrical agency.[2]

According to his obituary on The Stage website, Gilbert "slipped into a coma and died."[3]
