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

The prob­lem with this minis­eries, re­cently seen on Seven, isn’t with the pro­duc­tion at all. The act­ing from the leads is fine and the recre­ation of the ‘60s be­liev­able. It is just that we re­ally don’t have much of a con­nec­tion with Ron­ald Biggs who helped steal £2.6 mil­lion from the Royal Mail train in 1963, let alone with his wife Char­maine. Ron­nie is por­trayed as a like­able lad and Char­maine as the gullible young girl who fell in love with him and was swept along with his life on the run. So for­get about the his­tory and en­joy it for what it is – an ac­cept­able love story cou­pled with a po­lice drama as the cou­ple go on the run. ★★★ Ex­tras: None
