“The Bletchley Circle” and why the next three Sunday nights just got a little more exciting

20 Apr

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.

    Hi, Elizabeth! Your site is so sweet. I loved the first episode as well, and will be so sad to see the series end. I think it set up the overall story really well. I also think this is the kind of series that will benefit from multiple viewings because you’ll probably see (or hear–I sometimes miss dialogue the first go-round) details you missed that will help you appreciate it more. I do worry that three episodes are not enough to really develop all four main characters–I’m keeping my fingers crossed they’ll come back. 🙂

    Thanks for liking the post. 🙂 Let me know what you think of the second episode!

      I felt the same way: I want to see the first episode again to soak up all the details and catch the dialogue I missed. I sure hope they’ll continue this series. We’ll chat after the second episode! 🙂
