Alexa Morden can be seen in the concluding part of The Great Train Robbery on BBC One tonight at 20:00. The second film, A Copper’s Tale, focuses on the police investigation into the 1963 train robbery, spearheaded by the Flying Squad’s legendary DCS Tommy Butler and conducted in the full glare of public and media scrutiny.

In a race against time, can Butler and his hand-picked team of detectives identify every criminal involved in the robbery and bring them to justice before they flee the country? And even if they catch the criminals – can they find the money itself?

The scheduled broadcast comes in the wake of news that Ronnie Biggs, one of the criminals who took part in the heist, has died in north London at the age of 84 earlier this week.

The first part can now be viewed on BBC iPlayer.


Alexa trained at The Manchester School of Theatre.

Television credits include Skins and Fresh Meat for Channel 4, The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm and The Great Train Robbery for the BBC.

Film credits include the lead role in BAFTA Nominated Standby, Clay Kickers, Rubicon, The Black Prince, Beautiful Devils and The Rise & The Fall of the Krays.
