Bletchley Circle the group Bletchley Circle finding clues Bletchley Circle at Bletchley Park

Susan and her friends and colleagues all worked at Bletchley Park during the war. It was the intelligence centre, and especially the place were codes were broken and enemies kept under surveillance. Ten years later, Susan thinks she has decoded a serial killer’s method, and when the police fails to arrest him despite her help, she gathers her group again, and follows the killer with her best weapon: her intelligence.

My advice
I liked this (mini)series. It has detective work, feminism/female condition history, a touch of historical information, and so on. The choice of doing three (lengthy) episodes instead of one extremely long film is a good one. Also, costumes, sets, … of the ’50! It will not take too long to watch, so go on!
