I am a Downton Abbey fan. I realize that makes me one of a gazillion people, so I won’t spend any more time on that. I also realize that if you’re one of the gazillion, you’ve probably spent a little time trying to remember what you did on Sunday nights pre-Downton. I was starting to get into Death in Paradise, which was airing right after Downton at the beginning of Season Three, but it has since disappeared from my local PBS station’s schedule. Sigh.
Thankfully, I’ve found the answer…at least for the next three Sundays. Starting tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. (please check your local listings, though, as “PBS schedule expert” is nowhere to be found on my resume), PBS is airing The Bletchley Circle. It’s about a group of women who secretly worked as code breakers at Bletchley Park during World War II and reunite years later to catch a serial killer. Is it Sunday night yet? How can you not look forward to this series?
I’ll be back after tomorrow with my thoughts on The Bletchley Circle and would love to hear what you think if you tuned in.
P.S. A blogger (whose blog I love) recently posted that watching Downton made her want to say, “m’lady” afterwards and wanted to know if that happened to anyone else. Sadly, what happens to me is that I want someone else to call me “m’lady” after I watch an episode. And bring me tea and scones. Oh well.
