Terrance Dicks (born 10 May 1935) is an English writer and former script editor, best known for his work in television and as the author of many popular children's books during the 1970s and 1980s. His best known association during his television career was with Doctor Who on which he worked as a writer and from 1968 to 1974 served as the programme's script editor. Dicks contributed heavily to Target Books' series of novelisations of the Doctor Who TV serials, writing more than 60 of the titles published by the company.

During the 1990s, Dicks contributed to Virgin Publishing's line of full-length, officially-licensed, original Doctor Who novels, New Adventures, which continued the series' storyline following the TV cancellation in 1989. Dicks wrote three Doctor Who novels for Virgin, and continued to write occasionally for the franchise after BBC Books assumed the licence in 1997. He wrote the first of the Eighth Doctor Adventures, titled The Eight Doctors, which was, for a time, the best-selling original Doctor Who novel.
