Bob Baker of the Bristol Boys is a BAFTA-winning Brit.
Bob Baker and Dave Martin co-wrote and co-submitted a whole lot of scripts for Doctor Who, and eventually got some picked up. In only 8 stories, they managed to invent K-9, Omega, the Black Guardian, plus a bunch of aliens that nobody but BBV would ever consider licensing separately.
After Martin died, Baker and Paul Tams co-wrote and co-produced a spin-off series to milk the K9 copyright. And, after that series died, they decided to do a K9 vs. Omega movie. I'm sure the Black Guardian is coming next, and then the Axons.
In between, he co-wrote a bunch of other sci-fi stuff with Dave Martin, co-wrote all of Wallace and Gromit (except the first one) with Nick Park, co-wrote the animated bits of Vision On with Laurie Booth, co-wrote...
Basically, if it's British, he probably wrote it, but always with someone else.
Probably because the one time he tried to write something solo, it was Nightmare of Eden.
