MRS BIGGS

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -

Sun­day, 8.30pm, Seven

This new five-part drama tells the true story of Charmian Biggs, ex-wife of the Great Train Rob­ber, Ron­nie Biggs, and her whirl­wind ro­mance with him in the lead-up to the in­fa­mous 1963 crime.

Filmed in Eng­land, Paris, Rio de Janiero and Aus­tralia, the tale is re­told us­ing grainy colour and im­pec­ca­ble sets and cos­tum­ing.

How­ever, it is hard to un­der­stand why the young woman would steal for Ron­nie or pro­tect him and, as Biggs spends most of his life on the run, it seems cu­ri­ous as to why a whole se­ries would be made about her life.
