Description

    With an extraordinary flair for code breaking and razor-sharp intelligence skills, four seemingly ordinary women become the unlikely investigators in this original thriller series, set against the backdrop of post-war London.

    Season 2 opens with former Bletchley Park girl Alice Merren in prison awaiting trial for murder. Jean believes her innocent and tries to reunite the circle in an attempt to help one of their own. Susan is reluctant to get involved after her experience with the twisted serial killer Malcolm Crowley and the danger it posed to her family; Lucy now holds a clerical job at Scotland Yard and is keeping her head down. Millie works as a German translator, and branches out into what she believes to be an innocent sideline of dealing in unaccustomed goods. This endeavour leads to her being kidnapped and held in a seedy hotel by some gangsters. The girls pull together to investigate in order to save their friend and, as they do so, uncover a much darker, hidden world of crime.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Follow-up not really worth following up Sadly the script writers of "The Bletchley Circle" could not, in series 2, replicate the excellence of both the plot and the atmosphere of series 1. The gripping story of series 1, and the imaginative manner in which the skills of the Bletchley girls were enlisted, were probably doomed to be a one-off, and series 2 captures neither the suspense nor the atmosphere of its predecessor. Stick with series 1 and avoid disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting crime show with a twist A group of women who worked together as Code Breakers during WW2 get together to solve crimes, which gives the show an interesting twist.
