Earlier in June, we brought you news of a trailer for The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco, and now UK broadcaster ITV has got in on the act.
Series one and two, if you remember, saw Julie Graham, Anna Maxwell Martin, Rachael Stirling and Sophie Rundle form group of women who worked as codebreakers at Bletchley Park during the second world war and, having now returned to civilian life, find themselves investigating murder cases which have the police stymied.
The spin-off series, San Francisco, sees Graham and Stirling return is set in 1956, three years after the events of the original series. Jean and Millie depart London for San Francisco to investigate the murder of a close friend. There they are joined by North American code-breakers Iris and Hailey who, like their British counterparts, find themselves undervalued and overlooked despite their indispensable contributions to the war effort. With renewed purpose, the code-breaking team will stay in San Francisco and continue to solve mysteries together in the Bay Area.
Graham and Stirling are joined by Crystal Balint, Chanelle Peloso, Jennifer Spence and Ben Cotton.
Here’s ITV’s trailer. Look out for it at the end of July.
