Product Description

They had found their place in World War II – brilliant women with brilliant minds, breaking codes at Bletchley Park that would help the Allies win the war. But when the war was over...

Four graduates of Bletchley Park now at a loose end in a thankless world, have turned their razor-sharp minds to solving crime. When one of their own, Alice Merren, is imprisoned and charged with murder, Jean reunites Lucy, Susan and Millie in an attempt to prove their comrade’s innocence; but there are dark forces at work at the heart of the military establishment out to stop them.

With Susan called overseas, a new partner joins the Bletchley Circle. When Millie is kidnapped, brutalised and threatened by a Maltese gang that she has discovered trafficking young girls from Eastern Europe, the ladies must work fast – and undercover – if they are to save lives and not be thwarted by bribery and corruption at the heart of Scotland Yard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-Class Entertainment 3 Feb 2014
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The first series of Bletchley Circle brought a relaxed yet purposeful dedication and camaraderie within the operatives of the secret code-breakers of World War 2. This second series, set in 1953, picks up naturally from this. The 'one for all, all for one' philosophy is maintained. Two delightful stories are portrayed. When one of their compatriots, Alice,(Hattie Morahan), is convicted of murdering her ex-lover, scientist John Richards (Paul McGann,), she refuses to comment and is obviously being protective. The Bletchley girls re-unite as she is due to be hanged. Years before , Alice had joined the Bletchley team and John had gone to Porton (Down) the government's secret research centre. They had a daughter, Lizzie (Faye Marsan), who, unbeknown to Alice, had been seeing John. The Bletchley girls Susan, (Anna Maxwell Martin), Millie, (Rachel Stirling), Lucy, (Sophia Rundle) and the 'boss', Jean (Julia Graham) begin to delve into the circumstances of the alleged crime. The answer lies within Porton and the Bletchley crew are masterful in their enquiry to achieve truth and justice when Lizzie's identity is uncovered and the unethical scientist's human experiments come to light, with military help, leading to a thrilling finale.

The second story is more aggressive in that Millie becomes involved with selling contraband goods smuggled in by an organisation headed by Marta (Brana Bejic) a Maltese. Millie thinks this is standard provision of black market goods until she is kidnapped on suspicion of being 'not what she seems'. Marta is a clever and ruthless master criminal who imports goods illegally using an intricate encrypted code. This, of course, is just the incentive that leads the Bletchley team to try and decipher the messages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coming Into Their Own 8 May 2014
By prisrob TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"The Bletchley Circle" returns for it's second year. I really admired this group of women in their first year. Each of them very intelligent, great insight and able to see through any clue in minute detail. They had all worked at a secret installation, Bletchley Park, during World War 2. These mysteries take place in the early '50s after WWII, and this new season gives us some years after the first season ended.

The Bletchley Circle shows us the frustrations and issues women faced in their workplace with the sexism and limits placed on them. Their talent was based on how fast they could type and what they looked like in a tight skirt. They have become mothers, secretaries and librarians. And, in their off time they solve mysteries and often murders.

This is a four-episode season, with two episodes related to each other. Susan, played by Anna Maxwell Martin, remains traumatized after a close encounter in the first season with a murderer. She takes part in the first two episodes, and then leaves with her family for a foreign posting. We follow the women has they try to prove the innocence of a former colleague. Rachel Stirling plays Millie the most adventurous and beautiful of the group. She shines in the third and fourth episodes as the ladies try to solve the puzzle of strange codes and young girls for sale.

I enjoyed this series,but at times it seems as if the writers are stretching. Give them their own detective bureau, and let them really shine.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bletchley Circle - The Ladies 3 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have watched my series 2 and enjoyed it as much as the first series. Well acted, good storylines, a series that you can really become involved in when watching. I would recommend The Bletchley Circle 1 and 2 to you if you are thinking of purchasing and even if you are not deciding to purchase you may wish to consider this excellent series. I hope that series 3 is on the books to film.

2.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant idea badly executed 6 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Definitely disappointing. The background of Bletchley promises much, but the series does not deliver. The acting is good, but the plots are simply not up to standard, and don't maintain out interest.
