Anthony Read (born 21st April 1935) was script editor on Doctor Who during part of the tenure of Graham Williams as producer in 1978. He also wrote the story The Horns of Nimon. Read also collaborated with Williams on the script of The Invasion of Time, under the shared pseudonym of David Agnew, after the original script, involving an invasion of the Time Lord citadel by a race of Cat People, proved unworkable. Together with Don Houghton, he co-wrote the fifth Sapphire & Steel television story, known informally as Dr McDee Must Die. In 1979, he contributed the scripts for the episodes Powers of Darkness and Out of Body, Out of Mind to the paranormal thriller series The Omega Factor.

In 2003 Read paid tribute to the late Williams by becoming involved in an unofficial audio adaptation of Williams' unproduced serial The Nightmare Fair. Intended as a fund-raiser, the CD raised money for a charity called Sense which Read chose; Read also wrote a liner note paying tribute to Williams.
