Nicole Taylor’s Three Girls wins Best Drama Series

Feb 8, 2018

Nicole Taylor’s hard-hitting miniseries about the Rochdale abuse ring bagged the prestigious Best Drama Series at the 2018 Broadcast Awards, celebrating the very best in British television. 

Three Girls, Nicole Taylor’s three part drama for the BBC, provides a gripping, damning dramatisation of the Rochdale child grooming scandal, which was made public in 2012 and eventually resulted in the conviction of nine men.

"Tremendous credit is due to Nicole Taylor, whose dramatization conveys the unspeakable facts while maintaining a respectful distance” The Telegraph

“It does what everyone and everything –including the investigation – failed to do: it focuses on the abused rather than the abusers…Powerful and important” The Guardian 

“Powerful and sensitive”
