Review: This three-part series consists of 45 minute-long episodes that are centered on four women, who worked as code-breakers during World War II at a secret facility known as Bletchley Park. Forbidden from speaking of their activities after the war ended, each resumed "normal" lives. But one in particular, Susan (Anna Maxwell Martin), longed for the days when they made a difference in the world. The opportunity arises when she hears a report of young women found dead, one of a series that have occurred in the community. She realizes that a pattern exists, one apparently not seen by the police, and convinces her husband, a low-level government official, to pull strings to get her to see the police commissioner. He immediately recognizes her intellect, and that she probably served in some secret capacity during the war, and agrees to search for another body even though he doesn't believe he will find one. And he doesn't. Undeterred, Susan recruits her former mates to assist her in solving the case of the missing murder victim, and then to take it step further: identify the killer and stop him from killing again.
