Written by Jeff Pope, Mrs Biggs follows the life of Mrs Charmian Biggs, from the fateful moment that, as a teenager on a train, she first met and fell in love with the flirtatious and worldly Biggs. The five-part drama then recounts the story of their struggle to stay together in the face of fierce opposition from Charmian’s family – aghast at Biggs’ criminal record – and their idyllic life as the parents of young children before money worries forced Biggs to ask for a loan from an old friend to pay the deposit on a house they wanted to buy for their growing family. That friend was Bruce Reynolds, at that moment planning on of the most famous crimes in British history – the Great Train Robbery of August 1963. Mrs Biggs stars Sheridan Smith as Charmian Biggs, Danny Mays as Ronnie Biggs, Adrian Scarborough as Bernard Powell and Caroline Goodall as Muriel Powell.
