Robert Colin Holmes (2 April 1926 in Hertfordshire — 24 May 1986) was an English television scriptwriter, who for over twenty-five years contributed to some of the most popular programmes screened in the UK. He is particularly remembered for his work on science fiction programmes, most notably his extensive contributions to Doctor Who. Holmes suffered ill-health from the early-1980s and died in mid-1986. He left most of the final Colin Baker story, of the Trial of a Time Lord saga unfinished, but the early half, with gothic themes and some horror, was clearly Holmes's work. Many Doctor Who experts cite him as the best script-editor of the show; the viewing figures were notably high in his time.
