Omg
Did anyone watch
Poor poor Katy
And April (?) poor thing lost her life to this / but also seemed glad to gain a 'family' for 40y

No mention of the wife much? Would have liked more focus on her

Also wtf did 5-6 (at height) women do all day? Must have been incredibly boring!

What did Katy do all day as a kid?

And Katy's poor mother Sian - clear insinuation she died escaping Balakrishnan. Where were Sian's parents In this I wonder? Also wonder why no stronger bond been Sian and Katy.

So many questions !

I watched this as it happened to be on. Quite incredible to believe the hold AB had on the women and continued with Josie.

Katy and Aisha said he actively discouraged cuddling of Katy when she was a baby plus Sian seemed to advocate his crackpot ideas most strongly. ....prob why there was not a strong bond between mother and daughter. In fact Katy said it was a relief when her mother died.

I was impressed that both women are living their lives outside of the cult. Hope Katy succeeds at college.

Poor Katy. She looked so vulnerable and alone. I hope she has really good friends now. I wanted to hug her.

Agree hesterton Katy is basically like an orphan with no family no previous friends and starting from 2013 onwards. How difficult for her! Guess would be more socialising to have a DH and kids as then she could 'start family life' again

Poor poor woman.

I found this so disturbing.... the cult him! how the women could be so brainwashed, one even leaping, or being thrown, to their death. 40 years. How is it possible? And in London....

I found her amazing after what she went through. Basically brought up with no love or cuddles or basic care...

Brilliant BBC documentary.

Loved the couple who are taking these girls in.
