Andrew Davies Biography
Andrew Davies (born 1936) is a British screenwriter. He is the creator of the television series Educating Marmalade and A Very Peculiar Practice, and is also well known for his adaptations of classic works of literature, including the famous television version of Pride and Prejudice starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.

The popularity of his adaptation of Michael Dobbs's political thriller House of Cards was a significant influence in Dobbs's decision to write two sequels (which he also adapted for television).
