The Bletchley Circle Premieres April 21 on PBS!

Critically acclaimed mystery series The Bletchley Circle is making its way to PBS stations around the country (ours included!) starting Sunday, April 21. The three-part series follows the lives of several women who were code-breakers at decryption facility Bletchley Park during World War II. The four returned to civilian life following the war, but are reunited when a string of ghastly murders baffles the police and presents the ladies with a different sort of deadly pattern to solve.

The drama stars South Riding’s Anna Maxwell Martin alongside Rachael Stirling, Sophie Rundle and SurvivorsJulie Graham (though I expect a lot of you will really recognize her from her guest appearance on Doc Martin).

Sound interesting? Watch the PBS preview for the new series below – which shows you a bit more about what the series is like. 

I’m always in favor of shows with this many strong women in leading roles, plus the whole Bletchley Park/codebreaking angle seems fascinating to me. I’m in.

How about you? Thinking about tuning in on Sunday?
