The Reckoning

Addressing the heinous crimes of once-loved TV personality Jimmy Savile, The Reckoning (starring Steve Coogan), details Savile’s childhood and subsequent rise to fame – via BBC’s Top of the Pops and Jim’ll Fix It – before his death in 2011.

The Reckoning is a 4-part biographical series intended to shine a light on the many failings that lead to such monstrous actions going unspoken and examines quite how Savile was able to pull the wool over the eyes of a nation.
