THE SHOW
Welcome to the criminal blunder-world!
Freedom finally beckons for lowlife con man Algie Packer. He’s done seven years inside and now he’s coming home to spend his carefully stashed cash – £3.5 million in untraceable notes. But there’s something Algie’s family has forgotten to mention…
Meet the Packers – just your perfectly average, totally dysfunctional, ‘well-dodgy’ Essex crime family with a BIG problem. Are they going to be able to cover their tracks before Algie arrives home? Maybe it’s time to go on the run…
