Search - List of Books by N. J. Crisp

Norman James Crisp (11 December 1923, Southampton - 14 June 2005, Southampton), known as a writer only by his initials and surname, N.J. Crisp, was a prolific British television writer, dramatist and novelist.

In the sixties after writing some single dramas, Crisp moved to writing for serials and turned out many scripts for many BBC series including Compact, R3, Dixon of Dock Green, Dr Finlay's Casebook, Colditz and Secret Army.

In 1968 he co-created The Expert, a serial about a forensic scientist, with Gerard Glaister, the producer. In 1972 the pair repeated the act with the boardroom drama The Brothers.

His 1996 play That Good Night starred Donald Sinden, Nigel Davenport, Lucy Fleming, Patrick Ryecart and Julie-Kate Olivier and was directed by Edward Hall.

Crisp's 1987 psychological thriller Dangerous Obsession was filmed in 1999 as Darkness Falls, starring Ray Winstone, Tim Dutton and Sherilyn Fenn. However, Crisp was so appalled at the end result and how his famously intricate plot had been turned on its head without his permission by a producer Alan Latham, that he insisted on having his name removed from the final print.
