Victor Pemberton was a British writer and television producer.

Victor Pemberton's scriptwriting work included BBC radio plays, and television scripts for the BBC and ITV, including Doctor Who, The Slide and The Adventures of Black Beauty.

His television production work included the British version of Fraggle Rock (second series onwards), and several independent documentaries including the 1989 International Emmy Award-winning Gwen: A Juliet Remembered, about stage actress Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies.

In his earlier years Pemberton had several small screen acting roles. In addition to novelisations, he has written many nostalgic novels set in London, prompted by the success of his autobiographical radio drama series Our Family.

His partner for many years was the actor David Spenser.

In the Summer of 2016 Pemberton traveled to the Arctic circle to raise money for Help for Heroes.
