Three Girls, a 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. The show also won Best Drama Series at the 2018 Broadcast Awards and won two Royal Television Society Awards in 2018 for Best Drama Writer and Best Mini Series. Three Girls is also nominated for Best Mini-series for the 2018 BAFTA TV Awards. 

"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 

"A harrowing tale, excellently told....Great writing, excellent performances, necessary watching of a tale that should never have had to be told." Huffington Post

Prior to Three Girls, Nicole Taylor’s multi-BAFTA nominated single drama The C Word, was produced for BBC1 and starred Sheridan Smith. Her upcoming feature Country Music is produced by Faye Ward, with backing from BFI, Creative Scotland and Film Four.
