The Bletchley Circle Series 2 finally hit the screens in the US last night after much anticipation.
There is always a spike of visitors to this website afterwards so I thought I would bring my reviews and The Bletchley Circle comments to the forefront – no sleuthing needed to find the content!
Truth be told, I am a little jealous of the US viewers because I remember my excited anticipation for the second series – you only get that anticipation for a series once and the painful teasing build up soon vanishes as the series starts.
Good news is that the series 2 lives up to the anticipation. It is an exciting and gripping series where we get to see more Bletchley Park wartime and post war antics blended with great drama – all I will say is that Episode 3 is my favourite by far.
So let’s talk about the start of the series. Millie, Lucy, Jean and Susan are reunited a year after the story line of Series 1 has ended. This time it is Jean who enlists the help of her Bletchley friends – one of their own is in trouble and Jean plans to help.
Let’s start with the tempting trailer:
Here are the articles I’ve posted about Series 2:

Video taster for Episode 3 & 4:
- The Bletchley Circle Review Series 2 – Finale (I love the way the writers have included the post war role of Bletchley Park in this series. It got my research fingers tingling and I found out some interesting facts).
I have also been given some pointers on mistakes that viewers have spotted. I’ll be posting about these soon. You can find all my The Bletchley Circle Reviews for Series 1 & 2 here, which includes my popular articles about using facts in historical fiction.
PBS have also put together a sneak peek page for video trailers and photo galleries covering the filming of the series. You can check that out here.
Don’t forget to check out The Bletchley Park Podcast episodes with interviews of the actors, writer and producers of the show. There is also coverage of the Bletchley Park staff who got to play extras.

Phew! That should keep you going. Why not take a few minutes to tell me what you think of the series. Leave a comment below, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
