The £133m Baby Reindeer lawsuit that must make Netflix wish they'd portrayed 'Martha' as a skinny doctor from Wales - and how the truth behind the global hit is unravelling

In Baby Reindeer, the character of Martha pursues her prey with ruthlessness. She haunts her victim's workplace, sits outside his home for hours and bombards him with emails and text messages.

She has and continues to experience anxiety, nightmares, panic attacks, shame, depression, nervousness, stomach pains, loss of appetite and fear, extreme stress and sickness all directly caused by the lies told about her in Baby Reindeer. At her one-bedroom council flat in central London, she told us that the 'suggestion I'm a serial stalker is a load of rubbish' and raged about her TV depiction, unkindly declaring that the actress Jessica Gunning who plays Martha 'sort of looks like me after I put on four stone in lockdown'. But even by the account of one of her 'victims' – a Scottish Labour MP's widow, Laura Wray, 62, who says she was stalked after sacking Miss Harvey from her law firm for erratic behaviour – the height of legal action taken was the seeking of an 'interim interdict', a form of civil injunction.
