Phil Davis.

Philip Davis is the English film actor who played the cab driving serial killer Jeff Hope in the Sherlock episode A Study in Pink. He also played Jeff Hope in the unaired pilot of Sherlock.

In an interview with Louisa Mellor, Phil compared his work on Sherlock and Merlin with his work on Being Human. He said that he "only did the one Sherlock because they shot me, it was very mean I thought, they could have winged me, but they didn’t, right in the chest so it’s been a longer haul (in Being Human) and the character develops in a way that I didn’t really get a chance to develop in those other ones."[1]

Phil played Lucius Petrus Dextrus in the Doctor Who episode The Fires of Pompeii, alongside Victoria Wicks. He also appeared as Inspector Gilbert in the 2015 film Mr. Holmes.
