ITV has cancelled plans to show the final episode of Noel Clarke’s primetime drama Viewpoint after the Guardian published detailed allegations of sexual harassment against the show’s star.

The five-part big budget thriller has been running every night this week at 9pm on ITV, but the conclusion of the story will no longer be shown on the broadcaster’s main channel on Friday night due to the “very serious nature” of the allegations raised by women who have worked with the actor and director.

The decision to pull the finale of a drama series from a mainstream television channel for off-screen reasons at the last minute is highly unusual. The broadcaster said the final episode would be made briefly available on its ITV Hub streaming service for viewers who wanted to see how the story concluded.

Taking it off the air but still letting you stream it is a bit of a head scratcher.

Had literally never heard of or seen him in anything before this furore.

I only know him from being Billie Piper's boyfriend in Doctor Who and the comeback of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet but he was behind those Kidulthood films and I think he's in something on Sky.

>sexual harassment
I know they say the allegations are very serious, but they were always going to say that. Sexual harassment can be a lot of things. The fact that he has been completely #cancelled overnight, and a TV programme he's in has now been thrown into the Well of Problematicity, certainly unsettles me. If he's a mad serial rapist, I guess it's up to ITV, although I'd at least let the series end before banishing him forever. If he just made some banter about boobies to a Vorderman-shaped colleague, then I would definitely, definitely let the series end before shitcanning him.

He, allegedly, has a thing for getting young women who are trying to break into the industry to have 'naked auditions' whilst secretly filming it.

There are twenty women alleging he's done shit so horrible he'd have been sacked years ago for any one of these incidents in any other line of work. Auditioning someone in the nude and secretly filming it is obviously something that's quite hard to bring about in most other jobs, but I don't think it's actually that shocking that he's lost work and his reputation is in the pits. This piece has all the alegations and they are damning and frequently corroborated: https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2021/apr/29/actor-noel-clarke-accused-of-groping-harassment-and-bullying-by-20-women

However, it's not until the end of that piece that something very telling happens. The writers explain Clarke had his mate call some of these women, telling one “If you want that sit down at any point with Noel, whether it’s with lawyers there or me there, whatever you want, for him to apologise, I know he will, he will do that.”. That's from Clarke's business partner Jason Maza who also told the woman Clarke had spent an "insane" amount on private eyes, and you don't do these things if you're confident you can hold your hands up and say wasn't me, guv in complete honesty. This seems like some really in depth journalism and The Guardian would be out of in court and out of print by next week if it was baseless.

He's a petite Weinstein, seemingly. Leveraging power for sexual sexual favours and shutting down dissent by the same means. Fuck him, I hope he spills hot tea all down his best shirt and it burns his nipples off.

I hate how they say "harrassment" to rhythm with "embarrassment". I can't be the only one.

It's started to sound that way when I read it now. Fuck you BBC Radio 4.
