Bletchley Circle, The (ITV 2012, Anna Maxwell Martin)

Period crime drama series The Bletchley Circle is a nice counterpoint to the usual code breaking stories surrounding the Bletchley Park British Intelligence unit during world war II. The series initially begins during world war two before moving forward to 1952 when the girls who worked at Bletchley have all returned to their former lives. When Susan Gray though discovers evidence that a serial killer may be at work and the police show a distinct lack of interest in the evidence she has gathered she brings together three of her former Bletchley colleagues, Millie, Lucy and Jean to try and solve the case themselves.

A second series of four episodes saw two further stories. In Blood On Their Hands Susan and Co try to prove that former Bletchley colleague Alice Merren is innocent of the murder that she has been accused of. In final two part story Uncustomed Goods Susan, Lucy and Jean discover that Millie has been kidnapped. She is heavily involved in black market trading and her dodgy business partner owes a large amount of money to Soho gangsters.
