About Keri Davis

Image of Keri Davies

Keri Davies tumbled accidentally into the fictional village of Ambridge in 1992. He has worked on The Archers as a producer, senior producer and web producer. Since 2003, he has been an Archers scriptwriter.

Keri has directed over 700 episodes, including the notorious armed raid on the village shop. He has written over 300 Archers scripts, including in 2017 Kirsty's Miller’s meltdown as she finally acknowledged her grief after a late miscarriage. He also created and wrote ten editions of the pocket guide 'Who’s Who in The Archers' and was on the team that established The Archers' sister programme Ambridge Extra, writing scripts for the first three series.

Keri lives in Birmingham with his three sons and a Mazda Bongo camper van - appropriately named, as he is also a drummer and percussionist.

In 2017, he (or rather his facial hair) was voted Beard of Winter. He hasn’t let it change his life.
