Christopher Penfold is an English scriptwriter and editor.
Penfold is perhaps most well known for being one of the brains behind Gerry Anderson's science fiction series Space: 1999. He worked as story consultant for the original series (first 16 episodes of the 24-part series) and is credited for writing 'Guardian of Piri' (based on a script by David Weir), 'Alpha Child' (based on a script by Edward di Lorenzo), 'The Last Sunset', 'War Games', 'Space Brain' and 'Dragon's Domain' for the first series and 'Dorzak' as a freelance contributor for the second. Penfold was uncredited for re-writing the series' premiere 'Breakaway' as well as David Weir's 'Black Sun' and fellow staff member Edward di Lorenzo's 'Missing Link'.
In 2010 Christopher Penfold contributed a foreword to the novel, Space: 1999 Omega and its sequel novel, Space: 1999 Alpha. Both novels were written by William Latham and published by Powys Media and were released simultaneously on 27 February 2010.
