April 9, 2013 – December Media’s and ITV’s 5-part drama series Mrs Biggs, starring Sheridan Smith and Daniel Mays, premieres on Sunday 14 April at 9:30pm on Channel Seven.
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.
Mrs Biggs is a co-production between ITV Studios in the UK and Melbourne based December Media for Seven Network in Australia.
