I already saw The Crown and loved every minute of it, but I also discovered another series that I thought was really good.
The Bletchley circle is set in 1950. It is about four women who worked at Bletchley Park during the war, meaning they were working as codebreakers trying to crack the German codes to get information. This work was secret and they were not permitted to speak about it during the war of afterwards.
Then in 1950 women are murdered in London, and one of the Bletchley girls, now a wife and mother, sees a pattern. The police is willing to listen to her in the first place, but when it turns out she is wrong about the finding place of the next body, they do not take her seriously anymore.
Susan then brings the different colleagues together from Bletchley and together they work out who the murderer is.
I love, love, love this series.
First of all, the four women are all different characters and are well written. Each one of them has their speciality, Susan (Anna Maxwell Martin) is good at seeing patterns, Millie (Rachael Stirling) has a knack with maps and languages, Lucy (Sophie Rundle) has a photographic memory and Jean (Julie Graham) is the organiser.

Millie especially has amazing clothes, she is a bit more glamarous than the others!
There are two seasons, the first season has one story told in three episodes, the second season has two stories, told in two episodes each. It is a shame there is not third series, because I would have liked to see a lot more of these amazing clever women!
