    so a period detective drama featuring women cryptographers solving murders
    - I wonder if it'll be like Charlie's Angels, with Charlie being Turing?

    :laugh:

    Radio4 Extra have been broadcasting a serial about Noel Coward and Judy Garland taking on American gangsters.:) I'd like to see a TV version of that rather than this.

    It's got Anna Maxwell Martin, so that's usually a good sign Bri

    I enjoyed it.

    Rai/Bri - did you recognise Sophie Rundle (Lucy) from Episodes?
    - she appeared with her two friends

    Indeed Anna Maxwell Martin is usually very good. I loved her in the recent Bleak House adaption. Lucy rang a very vauge bell but I have to confess I didn't watch the second series of Episodes and I don't remember from the first.

    I thought the grand finale was a bit of a damp squib. Her actions made no sense.
    She'd demonstrated she was willing to sacrifice herself for the sake of her family and then did the one thing that didn't guarantee anything except her own sticky end. Still, I suppose you could argue that under extreme stress she finally wasn't thinking straight, unlike the laser type acumen she'd shown in the previous two and three quarter hours.

    Having said all that, I would happily watch another season or two.

    Regards

    Mark

    The more i watched the more i tired of it, i liked Anna Maxwell Martin in the role, but the other girls were quite forgettable.

    Watched it last night . I agree with most not bad but thought ending was a bit lame.

    Id watch another though.

    I would as well. It was way better than the average murder mystery drama.

    Loved it and really hope they bring it back but I'm with others that the finale was a bit disappointing compared to the rest of it.

    I was surprised there wasn't any other mention of Turing apart from the comment "Alan's girls", in this centenary year of his

    Not that good a second series. None of the thrills or suspense of the first. Clumsy replacement of the lead character ... almost as if they're asking to be cancelled.
