Mrs Biggs (2012)

First of a five-part drama series about the woman who married Ronnie Biggs. A passionate love affair begins when Charmian Powell meets handsome Ronnie Biggs on a London commuter train, but her father's disapproval forces the couple to elope to the Dorset coast with money that Ronnie forced Charmian to steal from her employers. After being caught by police following a dramatic chase, Ronnie is imprisoned and Charmian receives a suspended sentence. After Ronnie's release, Charmian begs him to turn his back on a life of crime, but money worries force Ronnie to ask an old friend for a loan as a deposit on a house. That friend is Bruce Reynolds, who is planning one of the most famous crimes in British history - the Great Train Robbery of August 1963. When Bruce offers to pay Ronnie to provide a train driver for the robbery, he reluctantly accepts.
