The Reckoning- BBC
All 4 parts available on Iplayer. A grim difficult watch, but have to say Coogan absolutely nailed it. Would absolutely be nailed on for a BAFTA it wasn't for the subject matter.

Watched it. Can only repeat what has already been said.

A tough watch
Well made
Coogan, incredible.

Re: The Reckoning- BBC
They certainly were very sure to lay it on thick that only the old white men were blind to and enabling all his behaviour and basically complicit, while every single woman in the show, and also the gentleman of colour in the hospital were oh so quick to continually see through him warn everyone exactly what he was.

Bit crass.

Re: The Reckoning- BBC
No his mum.was the only woman he had true respect for. Though it was a slightly one sided regard if that program is to be believed. He idolised her but they have made it out that she wasn't overly loving of him. Maybe he picked up.on.that if it's true and that informed his attitude towards women in general. We'll.never know but Coogan is just magnificent in this. Its not just the voice but the whole level.of absolute creepiness and arrogance of him is spot on.

I wonder if Saville assaulted The Duchess in the mortuary, and that fuelled his particular taste for that type of despicable sexual assault.

Re: The Reckoning- BBC
Branded - that’s an interesting point and one that I’d not really considered. Perhaps looking like an absolute fucking weirdo creep meant that nobody wanted to consensually get close to him.

BRANDED 4:09 Mon Oct 16
Re: The Reckoning- BBC
What wasn't clear to me in the program was if Saville was genuinely sexually promiscuous with consenting adults apart from one moment. Anyway, I guess most people just thought he was a bit of an odd cunt and wouldn't have been surprised if he was a massive wrongun but rarely had hard evidence if ever.

He definitely groomed people right to the very top though.

Re: The Reckoning- BBC
It's really good, but I feel like they've taken a bit of artistic licence and overegged the 'everyone blatantly hated him and had his number right from the off' a bit with the looks and remarks he gets off every single person as soon as his back was turned even before he was really a big deal at all.

Also including his mum, which is probably a bit of a flight of fancy. There are probably too many people being openly disgusted with him every minute of the programme (although i do appreciate it's difficult for it to be dramatically conveyed otherwise) for that to ring true- at least for me.

Coogan is fucking superb

Not seen this yet. There are some good clips on YouTube from the Andrew Neill interview! The banana distraction is classic Saville; odious creep

Coogan was the voice of Saville in Spitting Image

Re: The Reckoning- BBC
Just finished watching this - very well made, Coogan is very convincing. The scenes with the journalist are excellent and very insightful into his psyche. Calling the journalist ‘wordsmith’ was both demeaning and almost endearing to Dan Davies at the same time.

Not exactly an enjoyable watch of course but it is well worth watching.

Re: The Reckoning- BBC
Going to start watching this tonight.

Apparently this was in production a couple of years back and has taken some time to get aired on tv.

I remember watching the Netflix documentary, surrounding himself with establishment, charity fund raiser and basically telling everyone what he was up to in interviews. "You wouldn't trust me in a convent school", little smile to camera while the interviewer laughs it off.

I never liked Jim'll Fix It and TOTP when he presented it but being so young I couldn't understand why he seemed to freak me out.

They are the bits that really hammer it home.
Steve Coogan really nails the sheer creepiness of Savile and the drama is really well done but it is the intercut real footage makes me really angry and sad.
Savile's eulogy, Savile with the fucking Pope! Savile with Thatcher, Savile surrounded by smiling kids etc.
Fenella Woolgar is superb as Margaret Thatcher too.

Re: The Reckoning- BBC
The fact he was found dead with his fingers crossed just shows what a sick cunt he was, that was his last insult to everyone he abused.
Coogan is simply incredible in the way he plays him.

If Esther Rantzen didn't feature heavily in it, then they are still in arse-covering mode.
