Bletchley Circle, The
This series follows four ordinary women with extraordinary ability to break codes, a skill honed during World War II when they worked undercover at Bletchley Park, site of the United Kingdom's main decryption establishment. Now, in post-war London, they have returned to civilian life, keeping their intelligence work secret from all, including family and friends. A series of ghastly murders targeting women, however, reunites the team as they set out to decode the pattern behind the crimes.

When Scotland Yard dismisses the women's theories, they realize it's up to them to stop the killer before he takes his next victim. They identify a suspect and use Lucy to lure him into a trap, but their plan goes badly awry and Lucy is assaulted. Shaken, the women take a different approach, contacting former war department members. Susan plans to meet with a psychiatrist whom she believes has helpful information, completely unaware of the danger that awaits her.

Susan, noticing a pattern in a string of London murders, contacts her old friends from Bletchley - Millie, Lucy and Jean - to try to identify the killer. Treating the crimes like a code to be cracked, the women gather all available information and evidence and then, through a sequence of clever deductions, determine how the killer is finding his victims and where a missing girl must have been abducted. Can they reach her before the killer claims his fifth victim?
