Baby Reindeer, Netflix's new drama thriller, has become a surprise global hit, leading the streaming service's Top 10 TV Shows list in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Spain (via What's on Netflix). The seven-episode series, which currently boasts a perfect Rotten Tomatoes score, has proven to be quite the sleeper hit. Based on the true life story of Richard Gadd (and adapted from his one-man show), Baby Reindeer recounts Gadd's experience with a female stalker. The show dives much deeper into Gadd's life (on-screen, his character is named Donny), as his complex relationship with his stalker pushes him to face a deep, dark, buried trauma.
