Be warned, it's disturbing reading.

It was after watch her documentary a few years ago on clerical sex abuse that I took my then young children out of religion classes. That's how much of an influence she had on me. She is great!

Yes. A massive loss, in the very real sense of the word. She was extraordinary. She had encyclopedic knowledge of her subject, she was intelligent, brave and probably most notably, relentless. A big hole has been left in her place.
