Jimmy Savile victim says Steve Coogan may ‘struggle’ in new BBC series

Jimmy Savile victim says Steve Coogan may ‘struggle’ in new BBC series
‘Coogan can act the idiot like Jimmy Savile was, but the sinister side I think maybe he might struggle,’ said Sylvia Edwards, who was assaulted by Savile on TV in 1976

A woman who was once assaulted on camera by Jimmy Savile has spoken out about the forthcoming BBC drama based on the prolific celebrity paedophile.

The Reckoning, which hits screens later this year, Savile will be played by スティーブクーガン, the actor best known for the comic character Alan Partridge.

Sylvia Edwards was 18 years old when Savile assaulted her on camera during a recording of Top of the Pops. 当時の, her complaints about being groped had been dismissed by a crew member.

と話す スカイニュース, 彼女は言いました: “I’m hoping [Coogan] portrays it well to make people realise how much of a monster that man was.

「「[Coogan] can act the idiot like Jimmy Savile was, but the sinister side I think maybe he might struggle," 彼女は付け加えた. “Jimmy Savile has been destroyed anywayhe’s going to be remembered as a paedophile forever.

“I hope he plays it wellI hope he plays it so that people can actually see how despicable Savile was.”

The Reckoning has come under fire from some critics who express scepticism over the tastefulness of the miniseries, and over the casting of Coogan.

The BBC has also faced heavy criticism for its role in facilitating the covering up of Savile’s crimes, with some accusing the broadcaster of hypocrisy in making the new miniseries.

今月上旬, Coogan said the backlash to the series is partly because “the nation enabled” the paedophile presenter’s crimes.
