William Aubrey Cecil Darlington (1890–1979) was a British writer and journalist who worked for many years as the drama critic of the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

Darlington also wrote novels, most successfully with his 1920 comic work Alf's Button which was adapted into several films.[1] He wrote an autobiography, I Do What I Like.[2] He disliked the name 'Cecil' and is often referred to as W.A. Darlington.
