Three Girls: TV drama hailed as ‘outstanding’ and ‘a landmark’
TV drama Three Girls was “extremely true to life” and “a landmark film”, according to figures who were involved in the child sex grooming case.
The programme told the real story of abuse and then failings by authorities in Rochdale between 2008 and 2012.
The portrayal of the real people was “outstanding”, according to lawyer Richard Scorer, who has represented the girl known as Holly in the show.
He said: “In terms of character acting I think it’s extremely true to life.”
Mr Scorer represented “Holly” in a civil case following the criminal trial that saw nine men convicted of running a child sexual exploitation ring in the Greater Manchester town.
He told BBC News: “In terms of awareness raising of the issue it’s an outstanding piece of drama.”
