The controversy unleashed by baby reindeer (Baby Reindeer), the series of Netflix which narrates the obsessive pursuit of Martha Scott towards comedian Donny Dunn, played by Richard Gadd, has transcended the screen to become intertwined with the real life of Fiona Harveya 58-year-old Scottish citizen who has become a trend after the viralization of television fiction.

Harvey, who has spoken out as the inspiration for the stalker character in the series, has categorically denied the allegations. Gadd accusations represented in the show and has launched a legal and media challenge to both the creators of the series and the presenter Piers Morgan with whom he held a controversial interview.

Now, Harvey is demanding compensation of one million pounds sterling (approximately USD 1.25 million dollars) after having received only 250 pounds (USD 313 dollars) for their participation in the program Piers Morgan Uncensored.

Since its launch last April 11the series has captured global attention, not only for its peculiar plot but also for the debate it has generated about the impact of true crime content on lives outside of social networks.

The popularity of the story can be seen from the number of views of Harvey’s interview with Morgan, which was watched by more than 11 million people. This has not only revealed the public’s fascination with knowing the truth behind the fiction represented in the series, but also represents greater promotion of the red “N” show.

Fiona Harvey demands £1 million after receiving £250 for her interview on ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’.

Contrary to the series’ narrative, Harvey described Gadd as “psychotic” during his 54-minute appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored and has threatened legal action against Gadd and Netflix for the harassment she has subsequently faced.

A particular point of contention has been the financial compensation Harvey received for his involvement in Morgan’s show. According to Harvey, the sum of £250 offered and given for his participation is insufficient for its relevance in the program.

“They offered me £250 and I asked if that was what everyone was paid, and if so, I wanted to see documentation of it.”. The lack of a response and a signed contract for the interview has motivated Harvey to demand much greater compensation.

The personal relationship with Morgan was also a source of discomfort for Harvey. Despite her friendly interactions with the show’s crew, Morgan showed little interest in Harvey during her stay on set, which she described as “quite a great act”accusing the presenter of acting this way solely for publicity.

In response to the accusations made by Harvey, representatives of Piers Morgan Uncensored have clarified that the payment to Harvey corresponds to the standard offered to the 95% of those invited to the program. On the other hand, Morgan, in subsequent articles and interviews, has contradicted Harvey’s statements, emphasizing that she will not obtain the compensation demanded and suggesting that her true intention is to obtain professional representation.

As opposed, Richard Gadd, the creator and protagonist of the series, stressed that he does not want “the pressure to fall on the survivors to reveal their identity.” Likewise, he stated: “I got a great catharsis doing programs like baby reindeer. I healed from that and I will never name the real life people behind the show”.

“I told this story how I wanted to tell it. How it healed me and the journey I took is really up to me. I think we are in a dark society that pressures victims of sexual abuse to solve their problems.“added the Scottish comedian about his autobiographical work.
