Doctor Who’s Noel Clarke The Subject Of Multiple #MeToo Allegations

Award-winning actor and director Noel Clarke is the latest person in the entertainment industry to get called out for alleged incongruity. The allegations are not just from a single person but 20 women.
The Guardian reports that the former Bafta recipient is being accused of a range of incidents of harassment. The alleged harassment happened both during his time in the relaunch of ‘Dr. Who’ and afterward. This isn’t just a case of inappropriate contact, but of all-around scumminess, which sounds like an abuse of power.
Among those bringing the #MeToo label to Clarke are actress Jing Lusi, producer Gina Powell, and art director Helen Atherton. During a fifteen-year period, the 20 accusers claim that Clarke perpetrated the following:

  • Sexual harassment.
  • Unwanted touching or groping.
  • Sexually inappropriate behavior and comments on set.
  • Professional misconduct.
  • Taking and sharing sexually explicit pictures and videos without consent.
  • Bullying.

Rather than taking the accusations and scampering them off into obscurity, Clarke outright denied them. Clarke made the following statement via his legal team, “In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me. If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise. I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.
Following pressure from accusers and the media, Bafta stripped Clarke of his award and membership. The Guardian goes in-depth with most of the accounts of his accusers. It’s not looking good for him. Will the truth come out? That’ll be hard since some of these allegations are from over 15 years ago.

Above all the glamorized headlines and talking heads vying for that ounce of fame during such a salacious topic, remember one thing. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Accusations are just that, regardless of the number or the appalling details contained in them. Take him to court, prove the cases, and allow the imperfect justice system to dispense its responsibility.
Please keep the comments civil.
