Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story has landed on Netflix, drawing horrified reactions from viewers.

The series, which promises to investigate Savile’s crimes of sexual abuse and pedophilia and how they were covered up during his lifetime, has also revealed how Prince Charles approached the network for PR advice in the 1990s.

“I just started watching Netflix, Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story. And it’s really a horror, the signs were there but no one did anything about it,” one viewer wrote.

Another tweeted: “This Jimmy Savile documentary on Netflix is ​​insane.”

“Honestly, fame and fortune protect white men the most,” said one viewer. “Well his story (ie Savile) makes me shudder at what other rich, famous white men have done. I mean I bet [Harvey] Weinstein wasn’t the worst.”

Another described the two-part documentary as “the most disturbing piece of television I’ve ever seen.”

“I’m queasy,” they said. “He literally told the world who he really was and nobody picked up on it because the philanthropic work was a smoke screen.”

Another noted Savile repeatedly made jokes about being an abuser, but they were laughed at: “That Jimmy Savile’s doctor is insane… This man has rightly confessed to being a pedophile for years, as joke and people have.” laughed about it.”

After Savile died in 2011, hundreds of people came forward with allegations of abuse, which he committed while working for the BBC and while doing charity work in hospitals and prisons.

An NHS investigation found Savile sexually assaulted patients and staff at 28 different hospitals. The ages of the victims ranged from five to 75 years.

It has been alleged that BBC, Conservative Party and police officials failed to respond to allegations of abuse during Savile’s lifetime.
