This three part PBS mini-series follows four former WWII code breakers while they follow the trail of a serial killer. The story is set in 1951 post-war England. The four heroines, Susan, Millie, Jean, and Lucy, have put their past military life behind them, however, they still have their extremely sharp skill sets. Their ability to see patterns, break codes, recall details, etc., keep them leaps and bounds ahead of the police.
I thought that the acting was very well done. The story was interesting -- I was captivated. While there were a few disturbing scenes there wasn't a whole lot of visual "blood and guts". That being said, I would say that thematically it is rather adult.
In my humble opinion, I would say that this show is beneath Sherlock and Foyle's War, but still very well done. (What it is about British TV that has me hooked lately?)
I am excitedly awaiting the second series, which started this month. (The first episode aired in the UK, I will probably have to wait for it to come to Netflix.)
Have you seen "The Bletchley Circle"? What are your thoughts?
The real-life history of Bletchley Park is truly fascinating! Just take a quick peek at Wikipedia!
*I haven't seen too much of Call the Midwife, pregnancy hormones made the show a bit too emotional. I fully plan on returning to the show after this little guy is born.
