The Bletchley Circle 2: Interviews

bletchley21500

“I gather there was a lot of excitement online.

“We trended on Twitter as #ladynerds – which I love.

“Bletchley and these girls represent everything that is brilliant about Britain.

“They’re eccentric, non-conformist and think outside the box.”

Rachael Stirling talking to me about series one of The Bletchley Circle and reprising her role as Millie in the second series.

Which begins on ITV at 9pm on Monday (January 6).

I was delighted to be asked to write the cast interviews for the new series, as I had done for the first one.

Talking to Rachael, Anna Maxwell Martin (Susan), Julie Graham (Jean), Sophie Rundle (Lucy) and Hattie Morahan, who appears in the new series as former Bletchley Park code-breaker Alice Merren.

You can read those interviews in the ITV Production Notes here:

Rachael, Julie and Hattie were also on good form when they attended the series two press launch at the end of November.

Together with writer Guy Burt and executive producer Jake Lushington.

The Bletchley Circle’s success on screen has also had a rather nice spin-off in the real world.

With increased visitor numbers at Bletchley Park, where exciting developments are taking place.

    Enjoy this program very much and waiting for it to be shown here in Oakville/Canada :)

    • Mary, I am also in Canada (NL) and watched the first series via PBS out of Buffalo, NY/Toronto. Waiting for series 2, suggest to join in with fans at “The Bletchley Circle Watchers” fansite online. You can find it just by googling that.

    Get Netflix ladies! Season 2 is on there. I’ve just been watching it. It is brilliant. Makes me want to go back to the U.K…. for a visit!
    I’m in B.C, Canada.

    • You can also get the series from PBS shop and other places online. And probably at your local library on DVD. ~ The Bletchley Circle Watchers fans online
