I'm not one much for period pieces... but this is an era i find beautiful and since it was a mystery... well i couldn't pass it up! Done extremely well regardless what time they set it in

Top marks for this mini-series! Excellent story and acting by all. The time period was also caught very well. I'm looking forward to series 2. Checking Wikipedia, though, I see that this series was not renewed for a 3rd series.

I learned on the Bletchley Circle Watchers facebook page that ITV has decided not to run season 3. Such a shame as this is such a wonderful series. There's a petition circulating but i doubt it will help. The facebook page gives info on who to contact at ITV.


Fabulous, suspenseful, intricate plot, great acting- where is season 3?

A most enjoyable series.
These women were as good at solving crimes as they had been at cracking Hitler's codes.
