I continued to enjoy watching the Bletchley women perform brilliant feats of research and deduction. All four actors gave great performances and they were a lot of fun to watch.

The more we found out about the serial killer, the less interested I was in his plot line. I'll have more to say about that in the Episode 3 post.

This episode, unfortunately, made me stop watching. The "lure the killer with a hot girl" plot really, really bugged me, seemed totally unrealistic and just put there to titilate. I was sad because as I said in the other thread, I really liked the premise, actors, sets, etc.

I just power-watched all three episodes because I hadn't seen it since the original broadcast and I liked it even better the second time around.

Besides the character development and great acting, I love the production values. Post-war Britain was grim. So there was the bacon rationing headline at the newspaper kiosk and the scene in which all the characters are sitting around in Millie's flat working on something... and they are all wearing their coats. I don't think the time of year has been mentioned, has it? Early spring maybe? So still chilly indoors but Millie's not working and being thrifty by not putting a penny in the meter. Also, does anyone get an AMSR response when Susan speaks?
