history, the Great Train Robbery of August 1963. The aftermath of the train
robbery and Biggs subsequent escape from prison leads to a life of flight
for Charmian and her children as she tries to keep the family together.^[1]

Charmian Biggs is played by Sheridan Smith; Ronnie Biggs is played by
Daniel Mays. The series was written by Jeff Pope, in co-operation with the
real Charmian Biggs.^[2] Smith's performance as Charmian received
widespread critical acclaim, and she ultimately won the 2013 BAFTA
