You may have seen he BBC3 TV series “Thieves Like Us” about a pair of jobbing burglars. Despite the dubious career choice, Bex and Ollie are lovable characters who have a certain morality when it comes to burglary and don’t take things of sentimental value. In More Burglar Diaries we follow Bex and Ollie on various “jobs” getting themselves in to scrapes and brushes with the law while trying to keep on the right side of their girlfriends. Danny King is one of those bubbling under talents that deserves to be up there with some of our best comedy writers.

Synopsis

More Burglar Diaries by Danny King

Bex and Ollie are a couple of small-time burglars. They scratch a living robbing shops, burgling factories and emptying offices around the back-water town of Tatley.

Bex is the brains, Ollie drives the van.

Neither are particularly ambitious, preferring instead to think small and live comfortably, rather than aim high and risk time.

The lads don’t have it all their own way though; ‘Weasel’ of CID is only one faltering step behind them, the local criminal competition will do anything to stitch them up and the loves of their lives are wondering what the hell they’ve done to deserve them.

Things are about to finally catch up with Bex and Ollie.

Following on from The Burglar Diaries narrator Bex takes us on another tour of Tatley’s rooftops and drainpipes, and through lock-ups, cock-ups and jobs as he recounts More Burglar Diaries.
