The Bletchley Circle follows the journey of four ordinary women with extraordinary skills that helped to end World War II
Lack of action by the police leaves the women to conclude there must be corruption within the vice squad and that catching the gang red-handed is their only option. Plotting to infiltrate the crime ring to find out the location of the hotel being used as a base, they visit Marta in her restaurant, pretending Jean is a potential new client. This leads to an opportunity for Lucy to memorise the businesswoman's ledger, which may hold the key to the whole operation. Last in the series
Drama set in 1952, following four fictional women whose extraordinary work at Bletchley Park during the Second World War helped break codes used by the German military. Susan, Millie, Jean and Lucy have returned to their normal lives, but when Susan identifies a hidden pattern in a series of murders, she enlists the help of her former colleagues to crack the case. Starring Anna Maxwell Martin, Rachael Stirling, Julie Graham and Sophie Rundle.
Women are badass and this is proof of it. Though through out it wort of makes you want to slap the men and tell them to get a grip for not noticing. Then you remember this was the 50s and unfortunately the norm. The cases are interesting and the women contribute eminently in each their way. It is also a different take on the post war period where women had to adapt to becoming regular, not listened to, housewives.
Female crime solvers are always my jam. These ladies are interesting and the fact that they decided to solve these cases makes me very happy. The cases were interesting and I personally liked how the women struggled with going back to being housewives after the excitement of codebreaking during the war. Really compelling drama.
