Three Girls praised as 'hard-hitting' and 'eye-opening' drama by viewers

BBC drama Three Girls stars east Bristol landmarks

The prolonged sexual abuse in Rochdale of children as young as 13 by Muslim men in their thirties, forties and fifties defies understanding when you read about it.

In the first episode new to the area, Holly is keen to make friends but finds herself drawn into a frightening world she is unable to escape - a world all too familiar to sexual health worker Sara.

Margaret Oliver, a detective constable for Great Manchester Police, is faced with the challenge of convincing the girls to revisit the horror they suffered.

"Three Girls is harrowing, yet necessary viewing".

It is based on the 2012 scandal which saw nine Asian men prosecuted for offences including rape and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

Three Girls demonstrates how the teenagers were given drugs and alcohol before being abused, and explores the authoritie's responses when they reported what had happened to them.

After her pleas went previously ignored, the true extent of the abuse and betrayal is revealed and sends shockwaves through the police, and they're finally ready to listen. We had three-and-a-half months from last August filming it.

"It wasn't a deliberate break and I wasn't in a rush to get any work but, at the same time, I know that if a job had come up that I really wanted to do, I would have done it".

Molly's older brother is the drummer in rock band Fahran.

Three Girls premieres on BBC1 tonight (16 May) at 9pm.

"Especially in episode three. there's a bunch of EDL types outside the courtroom, one of whom racially abuses Nazir Azfal, the head of the CPS in the North West, thinking he's a perpetrator".
