Is Baby Reindeer a true story?


The answer is yes. Baby Reindeer is a true story based on the personal experience of actor Richard Gadd who was subjected to years of stalking by her female fan. Richard Gadd's female stalker name is Martha as shown in the series. Baby Reindeer is among those rare series in which an actor has made a series based on his personal experience of stalking. 

As per Richard Gadd, the female stalker regularly pursued him for several years, leaving him living in fear and frustration as he was unable to ascertain a restraining order while she technically kept within the confines of the law while sending him countless messages and voicemails - over 41,000 in three years.  


Guardian quoted Richard narrating his harrowing experience of stalking saying, "It felt like I’d expunged the demons of one person who had caused me so much grief, only so that she [his stalker] could take centre stage in his place. It felt so awfully ironic."

I’d have to do it myself. I’m very good. I have a photographic memory and can memorise huge files. I was top in my school at everything.
