    The performances are superb and make Bletchley Circle more than the sum of its pedantic parts.

I initiallyI have to admit I am a student of the history of Bletchley Park and the code breakers and have visited the facility recently. I initially thought the series was about BP and its role during WWII but it is much more. The story line is fascinating and the period costumes, automobiles, interior decoration of the buildings and use of restored train stations and buildings put the viewer into the period with the actors. The four lead actors are superb in their respective roles. Because this is a British series (shown on PBS in the US) you have to concentrate a bit on the dialogue and accents. The series was recently renewed for another season and f I look forward to the next mystery for them to solve. Full Review »
