Colin Hugh Kiaran Woodhouse (12[1] February 1934)[2] – 29 August[3] 2011)[4] was a screenwriter and the younger brother of Martin Woodhouse, also a screenwriter. Together, they wrote some episodes of Supercar.[5]

Woodhouse enrolled at St John's College, Cambridge, in 1954.[6] In 2002, he became associated with Cubeword Games Limited, a Shaftesbury-based manufacturer of games and toys. He became a company director on 17 April, and on 7 May, Woodhouse became a secretary.[2]

By a tragic coincidence, he died on his brother's birthday, 29 August 2011[3][5]
