    An adaptation of David Walliams' best-selling children’s novel which tells the story of Ben, a schoolboy who discovers his grandmother, played by Julia McKenzie, has a criminal past.

    Instead of the usual night of Scrabble and cabbage soup, they make plans to pull off one of history's greatest ever heists: stealing the crown jewels from under the nose of the Queen, played by Joanna Lumley.
