The Acorn online store is offering TV drama fans the chance to pre-order BBC miniseries The Great Train Robbery on DVD before the hotly anticipated show is broadcast.
With a premiere airing expected to be around Christmas, no release date has been announced for the accompanying DVD, but online shoppers can pre-order their copy today.
In this pioneering, two-part series one unforgettable true story is told from two opposing perspectives. The Great Train Robbery brings together an all-star cast of established British performers and the stars of the future, to recreate the most famous heist in UK history.
Written by Chris Chibnall, of Broadchurch and Dr Who fame, this gripping story unfolds over the course of two feature length films.
The first, A Robber’s Tale, follows Luke Evans as Bruce Reynolds, who along with his team of master thieves planned and orchestrated the crime of the century. The second, A Copper’s Tale, picks up the story in the aftermath of the crime and joins the enigmatic DCS Tommy Butler, played by Jim Broadbent, in pursuit of the legendary crooks.
