The Bletchley Circle: Series 1 (on DVD)

Bletchley Circle: Series 1 [DVD Bletchley]

Set just after World War II this series is about four female friends who worked at Bletchley Park during the war as code breakers. While there is not really a main character, the story starts with Susan who has gotten married, had children, and is getting very bored being a housewife after her challenging job during the war. She hears on the news of murders occurring in London and takes it upon herself to put together the pieces. The police don’t take her leads seriously so she turns to her friends who attempt to find the killer themselves. Over the three episodes in this season there is a lot of character development which I really enjoyed. I like mysteries but the show is so much better when we see the characters grow too. This was also a nice glimpse into life in post war England.
