Having pulled off the smallest ever train robbery, Little Walter and his crew decide to get out of London. The six of them set up business in a disused monastery off the Cornish coast, despite the fact that none of them really qualifies as a monk - least of all Walter's moll Bikini. Bit by bit, the quiet way of life starts becoming a habit. Written by

A group of criminals are on the run after a train robbery & find the perfect hiding place. A remote monastery on a small Cornish island. However after a shaky start the criminals start to adapt & enjoy their new life. But will their criminal origins catch up with them? A classic British comedy from the golden age with a cast of familiar faces from the big & small screen( Babs Windsor, Ron Fraser, Wilfrid Brambell , Cribbins etc). Sadly many of them are no longer with us.Not as cheeky as the Carry Ons but with some similarities,fans of UK comedy will enjoy this great British crime caper with its gentle humour & great characters.Their initial mishaps in dealing with a more sedate, natural life offer many classic scenes & the characters shine through. A shame we don't make 'em like this anymore.
