Andrew McCulloch (born 1945), often credited as Andy McCulloch, is a Scottish television writer and actor.
McCulloch's film credits include the 1969 version of David Copperfield, where he played Ham Peggotty, Cry of the Banshee (1970), The Last Valley (1971), Roman Polanski's Macbeth (1971), Kidnapped (1973), Nothing But the Night (1973), The Land That Time Forgot (1975) and Cry Freedom (1987).

McCulloch's first television writing credit was for the Doctor Who story "Meglos" in 1980, penned with John Flanagan, with whom he retains a regular writing partnership. A second script for the following season, called "Project Zeta-Sigma", failed to materialise. In 1991 however they wrote the cult spy series Sleepers, which was shown on BBC Two and starred Nigel Havers and Warren Clarke. He has also written for Murder in Suburbia, numerous episodes of Heartbeat and its spin-off The Royal, and gained critical acclaim for Margery and Gladys with June Brown and Penelope Keith in 2003.
