The Bletchley Circle

On Friday we wrapped filming for our 3 parter for ITV, The Bletchley Circle. More information on transmission dates to come, but just to whet your appetites, here is a little synopsis:

1950s: A female code-cracker from Bletchley Park
(now a housewife and mother) spots a pattern in a string of grisly murders
happening across London. Unable to convince the police of her burgeoning
theory, she gets the old team back together – in secret. A race against the
clock begins, against both the police and the murderer. Can this group
of women shake the dust off their singular expertise and track the killer down
before he strikes again?
