The Bletchley Circle follows the journey of four ordinary women with extraordinary skills that helped to end World War II.
Set in 1952, Susan (Anna Maxwell Martin), Millie (Rachael Stirling), Lucy (Sophie Rundle) and Jean (Julie Graham) have returned to their normal lives, modestly setting aside the part they played in producing crucial intelligence, which helped the Allies to victory and shortened the war.
When Susan discovers a hidden code behind an unsolved murder she is met by skepticism from the police. She quickly realises she can only begin to crack the murders and bring the culprit to justice with her former friends.
The Bletchley Circle paints a vivid portrait of post-war Britain in this fictional tale of unsung heroes.
Hopefully the gang of four female former code breakers will be back for more unlikely crime-solving adventures. Liverpool Echo
Did I mention that it's also intelligent, engrossing and quite exciting? The Stage
The idea of a group of former Bletchley Park code-breakers banding together as crime-fighters is more promising for a new crime drama than many. The Guardian
Throughout the first two episodes, barely ten minutes went by without a glorious penny-dropping moment. The Yorker
