    Sheridan Smith and Danny Mays in new drama Mrs Biggs, the story from Charmain’s point of view as the loyal partner to the infamous great train robber, Ronnie Biggs.

    Adrian Scarborough (Upstairs Downstairs, Cranford) and Caroline Goodall (The Good Wife, Schindler’s List) who will be playing Bernard and Muriel Powell, Charmian’s parents.

    ITV are pushing their drama creds for all their worth at the moment and this is one that is cropping up a lot. I'll give this one a go as it has the excellent Adrian Scarborough in it.

    Also my twin boys Harry and Alfie played the part of Nicky Biggs at 3ys old. We went to some of the filming for this earlier in the year.

    First episode was pretty good, hopefully the tension is upped from now on in.

    My boys were featured in the first episode and they did us proud... Sheridan and Daniel were lovely people too.

    :laugh:

    It must have been like watching a home video for them so Cars was far more entertaining. My son was an extra in a few episodes of Byker Grove. In one of them he had to dress up as a girl. We've never let him forget that he was a professional drag artist.

    :D

    We watched the first one tonight and we were very underwhelmed. There's more than a few good actors in it but it just didn't work. It doesn't help that we are both exhausted by our present situation. I still think we wouldn't have thiugt it was that great anyway.

    The young lads were brilliant though.

    :)

    Thanks Brian :)

    Yes it does seem very fast paced - we filmed some stuff that was cut out so I'm guessing there might be more stuff filmed that was chopped to up the pace.
