‘Real Martha’ claims she did not do jail time

Fiona Harvey, 58, a lawyer from Scotland, said she is now considering taking legal action over her portrayal in the Netflix hit, which its creator, Richard Gadd, admits is based on a real story.

“I’ve not been to prison,” she told the Daily Record. “I don’t know where the four-and-a-half years and nine months comes in.

“None of this happened. It’s a load of rubbish.”

In the show, Martha stalks comedian Donny, who later discovers that she has been to prison for similar offences.

“This is all made up and hyperbole,” Harvey said of the show. “There are no restraining orders, injunctions or interdicts anywhere. There’s just no way. I’ve not had the police at my door about any of these things.

“It’s a load of rubbish. I don’t have any money but I’m a perfectly capable lawyer so I will represent myself.”

Doctor Who writer says Baby Reindeer should have been ‘much stricter’ about disguising identities

Russel T Davies has claimed that if he had written Baby Reindeer, he would have been “much stricter” when it came to concealing the identities of the real people involved.

The revelation comes after the woman alleged to be the “real Martha”, the stalker, sat down with Piers Morgan for a tell-all interview, following her identification by internet sleuths.

“Compliance and editorial policy drives us mad here but I sleep at night,” the Doctor Who writer told The Times.

The claim comes after Netflix UK’s senior public policy director, Benjamin King, said the production company took “every reasonable precaution in disguising the real-life identities of the people involved in that story.”

“Ultimately, it’s obviously very difficult to control what viewers do, particularly in a world where everything is amplified by social media,” he said.

Richard Gadd ‘questioned’ the lack of help given to his stalker

The creator of Baby Reindeer Richard Gadd said he “questioned” why his stalker was not given appropriate help.

“It does feel like we’re at a crisis point with our public services right now. Going through the police process on [the stalking case], I really did feel quite confronted with just how kind of how much lack of resources there seemed to be,” he said.

“Like, why wasn’t she being helped in some way? I left with more questions than answers.”
