Mrs Biggs is the true story of the woman behind Britain’s most famous villain, Great Train Robber Ronald Biggs. Over five hour-long episodes we go an astonishing journey with her, from naïve young woman to reluctant gangster’s moll; from a stifling, choking life at the hands of an overbearing father, to the joy of freedom and motherhood. ‘Mrs Biggs’ gives us the inside story on one of the most infamous crimes of the twentieth century; but more than anything it is a sweeping love story told across three decades and from one side of the world to the other.
Starring Sheridan Smith as the title role of Charmian Biggs, joined by Danny Mays who assumes the iconic role of Charmian’s infamous ex-husband Ronnie Biggs, as well as Adrian Scarborough and Caroline Goodall who will be playing Bernard and Muriel Powell, Charmian’s parents.
Set on location in London, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Adelaide and Melbourne ‘Mrs Biggs’ is a co-production between ITV Studios in the UK and Melbourne based December Media for Seven Network in Australia.
