Too many dark scenes. Rapist on the train did not look like the killer at the end? Interesting how they found killer's hideout.

Season 1--I was familiar with the SOE and code girls after having read a couple of historical accounts about them --each book several hundred pages worth. I found this series to be quite interesting and surprisingly so did my husband. Also deals with the mental changes that people can have in a war setting. The acting is very good, very convincing.

Watched Season 2 in June 2019...found it to be even more action packed. 5 stars as well.

Before watching this series, I had never heard of Bletchley Park or the codebreakers who worked there during World War II. The whodunit was decent, but the real dramatic intrigue for me was watching these amazingly intelligent and quick witted former codebreaker women struggle to adjust to domestic civilian life and have to keep the secret of their wartime heroism. Susan especially has a hard time conforming to the old pre-war women belong in the home social order. These women don't stay silent and compliant for long. They make themselves just as indispensable in the shadows, as in the war, using their codebreaking skills to catch an emotionally damaged serial killer.

PBS's series are good. This one was quite up to par. The women who worked at Bletchley were very intelligent. This wasn't shown very well. It was only mildly suspenseful but was a good watch. Would recommend it to anyone.

Very good film. There are effective women; just very few, so hard to find. Too many like Merkel the jerkel.

Loved the first two programs of the series, however without Anna Maxwell Martin the plots definitely thinned. Can't see much future in this series unfortunately.

I liked this season much better than the first season. More exciting and action in the storyline. Wonderful show; I enjoyed it!

Interesting show about how code breaking was used to solve the mystery of local women being murdered by a serial killer. It was slow at times for the storyline, thus the reason for a 3 star rating. Update: I just saw the second season and thought it was much more exciting compared to the first season. So if you've just finished watching this first season and you're not sure if you'll like to see more, I highly recommend you to continue on and watch the second season because it's even better! :)

Great performances. The second series impresses as much as the first one. Love watching strong female roles.

Susan: All those troops are on the move now because of us. Not bad for a few ordinary girls in a tin hut ... Why are you laughing?
Millie: "Ordinary girls". You couldn't be ordinary if you tried.
Susan: When this is over, won't we have to be ordinary?
Millie: I won't let you.
