About

Hello! Alex Skerratt here.

This is the main website for all my projects. Thanks for stopping by! It’s a bit hard to describe what I do. I’m mostly a freelance writer; I’ve written for ITV’s Sooty since 2009 (a job I still do to this day) and in 2019 one of the episodes I co-wrote with my friend Richard Cadell was nominated for a BAFTA. I was also fortunate enough to work on the script for the Sooty movie, which is still in development. Otherwise, my main connection to Sooty is as the social media person, as I look after the official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels.

Meanwhile, to Tony Hancock fans, I’m the man who took on the pen name Darcy Sarto to complete the great, unfinished work Lady Don’t Fall Backwards, which was first published in 2013 after securing permission from the BBC and the estate of Tony Hancock. This was the fifth novel I wrote (and the first that I considered good enough to publish!) and I recently published my sixth, which is called River Still.

In another world, I produce video game content over at Al Survive (currently making Tomb Raider walkthroughs) and I work as the media man for a company known as Lovarzi, which produces the official Doctor Who and Star Trek scarves, and other merchandise.

I also work as an actor, so if you have a project and need a performer, I’d love to hear more! I’m also available to help with voice over work, graphic design, video editing, social media marketing, creative writing and copywriting, so feel free to enquire if you think I could help you.

Finally (because I’m not content doing all of the above!) I work as a pastoral assistant at a Christian boarding school, which covers just about everything: being an assistant houseparent / cover teacher / cross country runner / compulsory fun organiser. I have a counselling skills qualification and I’m currently doing ministry training. I’m curious about going into full-time ministry one day… if there’s enough space left in my brain!
