Storyline

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 Jeremy Perkins

User Reviews

 
Desperately weak comedy.
31 January 2020 | by splendidchapSee all my reviews

A promising premise that fails to live up to its potential. The third rate cast and fourth rate script produce a laugh-free comedy whose only redeeming feature is an appearance from a young Francesca Annis. Watch only if you have absolutely nothing else to do with your time.
