There was much rejoicing when it was announced the Britbox – the US streaming service jointly created by the BBC and ITV – was to ressurect The Bletchley Circle, the ITV crime drama that ran for two series.
This new incarnation is to be called The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco and is set, well… it does what it says on the tin. Now we not only have some plotlines and an idea when it will start, but also a trailer.
The new show follows cryptographers-turned-detectives Jean (Julie Graham) and Millie (Rachael Stirling) as they head to San Francisco to investigate the murder of a friend.
Once in the US, the pair teams up with local female code-breakers and tackle an array of mysteries in the Bay Area. The series has four stories, with two hour-long episodes dedicated to each. The trailer sees the team investigating a crime scene in a decrepit house, which they realise is linked to an earlier crime that took place in the UK.
Here’s the trailer.
According BritBox’s youtube page and Deadline, The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco will start in July in the US (exact date TBC) and will land in the UK on ITV sometime later.
More news when we get it.
