The protagonists are four women who worked as codebreakers at Bletchley Park during WWII, but following the War found themselves falling into dull jobs and unhappy marriages that failed to measure up to the excitement of foiling Nazi spies. While some shows would have emphasised the differences between these women, The Bletchley Circle focuses what brings them together: boredom, loneliness, and a kind of frustrated determination that only needs a spark to explode back into its Wartime mood of bustling efficiency. — Hello, Tailor: The Bletchley Circle.
