he was in Dr Who during the Rose Tyler era, that's what I know him from. I feel there is way to much judgement going on these days before it goes through the legal process. It's turning to a situation where someone is guilty until proven innocent which I'm not comfortable with at all. Maybe the guy is a complete arse ... i don't know, but would prefer the courts decide it rather than media

Even with Doctor Who put aside I'm surprised by how little he's known. To be fair though I'm quite into "indie" and smaller creator stuff, and he's been a big contributor toward that kind of thing.

[Bafta has suspended award-winning British director
Noel Clarke's membership after 20 women accused him
of sexual harassment, groping and
bullying between 2004 and 2019 as a lewd video of the
star emerged using a microphone as a phallus
on stage during a Doctor Who event.
The academy said in a statement it had also
suspended his outstanding British contribution
to cinema award, which he was handed earlier
this month at the Royal Albert Hall, until further notice.

The actor and director, 45, who is married to former
make-up artist Iris Da Silva with three children]

Are they referring to the time he was describing how John Barrowman kept whipping his todge out on the set of Doctor Who?

[Jahannah James recalls Clarke had talked
her into auditioning for the role.
She had been hesitant.
She was only 23 and fresh out of drama school.
But Clarke persuaded her, explaining that
the naked audition wouldn’t
be filmed; an email from her agent confirmed this agreement.
“I was told 100% it was not going
to be on camera,” James says. As she understood it,
the naked audition was purely to check she
could do the scene and wasn’t going to “bottle it” on the day.

The audition was mortifying, James recalls,
and afterwards she pulled out of the running for the role;
she didn’t want one of her first acting
jobs to be nude.
The Guardian spoke to two friends of
Powell and James who were also present
in the pub that day and recalled
the emotional exchange. “I was so upset,”
James recalls. “Now, years later, I still cry when I talk about it.”

Clarke denies ever covertly filming naked auditions
or sharing such footage with Powell.
A casting director who was present
at James’s audition said there
was “absolutely no way” Clarke would have
covertly filmed it, even without her knowledge.
“He’s always been a good guy,” she said.]

Always thought he was arrogant and his 'talents' were vastly overrated (like, the Kidulthood movies are good, but not great), so I can't say I'd be too upset if these allegations are indeed true.
