Keith Temple (born in NewcastleEngland) is a British screenwriter for such shows as EmmerdaleCasualty and Doctor Who. He has also worked on the children's television programmes Children's Ward and Byker Grove.

In 2006 he wrote Angel Cake for BBC1 starring Sarah Lancashire and Rita Tushingham. It tells the story of a woman who bakes a cake that turns out to have the image of The Virgin Mary on it. He said of the play "the idea for Angel Cake wasn't some great revelation but instead the result of a fascination with stories which kept appearing in the news about weeping statues and strangely shaped buns."

He wrote the 2008 Doctor Who story  "Planet of the Ood",
