Related Explainer: Who's Fiona Harvey And Why Do People Think She's Martha From 'Baby Reindeer?' The Theory About The Netflix Stalker's Identity Explained


Fiona Harvey Is Martha Theories refers to fan theories and speculation that the real inspiration behind the character "Martha" in the 2024 Netflix show Baby Reindeer is a woman named Fiona Harvey. Created by comedian Richard Gadd, Baby Reindeer is based on a true story and follows "Donny" as he is stalked and catfished by a woman "Martha." In April 2024 following the release of the series, numerous internet users attempted to find Martha's real identity, which is not disclosed in the show, with many asserting that she is actually a person named Fiona Harvey. Although unconfirmed, speculation of Harvey purportedly being the inspiration for Martha sparked widespread discourse on social media alongside Baby Reindeer's virality online.


British comedian Richard Gadd premiered his one-man comedy show Baby Reindeer at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, delving into his experience of being stalked and assaulted in his 20s.

The award-winning show received a Netflix adaptation[1] that was released on April 11th, 2024, featuring Gadd playing "Donny Dunn" and British theater actress Jessica Gunning as his stalker "Martha."

Following the release of Baby Reindeer on Netflix in April 2024, fans and viewers began to theorize about the real-world identity of Gadd's stalker "Martha."

In late April 2024, X / Twitter users began drawing attention to an account they believed belonged to Gadd's real-life stalker. The account, named FionaHarvey2014, had made a tweet[2] on September 23rd, 2014, that read, "@MrRichardGadd my curtains need hung badly," a request echoed by Martha in the Baby Reindeer adaptation (seen below).

Elements from the show often referenced by viewers include Gadd's use of real messages and emails he received from his stalker, which were often signed off with an automated "Sent from my iPhone." As Gadd's stalker continued to harass him, this message began to include typos like "Sent frm my iphoen," indicating that his stalker would lie about things as minute as faking having an iPhone.


On April 21st, 2024, X[3] user @MooreFoodPlz quoted another post by @FionaHarvey2014, this time drawing a connection between her tweet about a pub in Camden and the pub setting shown in Baby Reindeer. The post gathered over 3,000 likes in a day (seen below).
