Nigel Fairs is a British actor, writer and producer.

He trained at Bretton Hall College and has appeared in a number of theatre productions, most notably as Christopher Wren in the long-running London stage production of The Mousetrap. On television, he has appeared in EastEnders and as a Dalek on Blue Peter. He has had 26 stage plays produced, and two musicals.

He currently works for Big Finish Productions, as a composer, and was the producer of their Sapphire and Steel and The Tomorrow People ranges. A common style of both ranges is an increase in emotional content, the exploration of ongoing themes and, in the case of The Tomorrow People, long-running story arcs. As well as writing individual stories for both these ranges, he has contributed to the company’s Doctor Who range in February 2007 with The Blue Tooth, and later The Catalyst and Empathy Games, both starring Louise Jameson. In 2007, he contributed to the short-story collection Short Trips: Snapshots. Prior to his work for Big Finish, he was a regular writer and director for BBV. In 2008 he appeared in the BBV film Zygon: When Being You Just Isn't Enough.[1]
