The Bletchley Circle Premiered on ITV on September 06, 2012

About the Show:
The Bletchley Circle follows the journey of four ordinary women with extraordinary skills that helped to end World War II.

Set in 1952, Susan, Millie, Lucy and Jean have returned to their normal lives, modestly setting aside the part they played in producing crucial intelligence, which helped the Allies to victory and shortened the war.  

When Susan discovers a hidden code behind an unsolved murder she is met by skepticism from the police. She quickly realises she can only begin to crack the murders and bring the culprit to justice with her former friends.  

The Bletchley Circle paints a vivid portrait of post-war Britain in this fictional tale of unsung heroes.

Episode 1: (Sep/06/2012)
Seven years after WWII, four women who worked as codebreakers at Bletchley Park have taken up mundane civilian lives. Susan, now a housewife, has collated data about a series of murders. She tries to convince the police she knows where another body is, but they are unable to locate it and dismiss her. Susan turns to her three friends. They work out where the next victim will be taken, find the body, then decide they are the only ones who can track down the killer.

Episode 2: (Sep/13/2012)
Utilising the statistics the women give the police three names and one is arrested when evidence is found. Meanwhile Jean and Lucy have discovered seven more murders linked where they believe innocent men have been convicted. The women devise a plan to trap the killer using Lucy as bait but it backfires when she goes with the wrong man causing trouble in the personal lives of Susan and Lucy. Another suspect emerges from a top secret war department headed by Cavendish and Susan comes face to face with the killer at a closed mental hospital.

Episode 3: (Sep/20/2012)
Susan returns with the police but the killer has gone. Susan finds a coded message in her home with Cavendish's address, and going there finds him dead.

He attempts to kill her but is shot dead by the others, who followed her.
