Stephen King gives the perfect two word review of Baby Reindeer

The King of Horror has spoken.

Baby Reindeer, a new dark comedy thriller series, has recently landed on Netflix and has made a huge impact on viewers.

Written by, created by and starring Scottish comedian Richard Gadd, the show centres around Donny – an aspiring Scottish stand-up who moved to London to pursue his career dream.

Now in his late 20s and working a dead-end job in a pub though, he feels like a failure.

So, when an older female patron at his bar named Martha (Jessica Gunning) laughs at his jokes and shows an interest in him, he is at first pleased with the attention – endeavouring to get more positive reactions out of her.

It turns out, however, the seemingly friendly Martha has a history of stalking and winds up forming a dangerous obsession with Donny.

Adapted from Gadd’s hit one-man play of the same name and based on true events that happened to the writer and performer, Baby Reindeer has found a huge fanbase after hitting Netflix.
