Short biography
The Times obituary mentions a story from A N Wilson of Wilson and John Bayley calling unexpectedly on Christiansen and finding him "entwined" with Bayley's wife, Iris Murdoch.  The Times writer differs from the Guardian version in his account of Christiansen's D Phil. thesis: he says that the thesis was accepted, but Christiansen did not take the degree, not wishing to be called "doctor".
