The Bletchley Circle returns for a second season in 2014. The first episode, Blood on Their Hands opens with former Bletchley Park girl Alice Merren in prison awaiting trial for murder. Jean stands behind her innocence and tries to reunite the circle in an attempt to help one of their own. Lucy is now getting on well in a clerical job at Scotland Yard and keeping her head down, and Millie is working as a German translator. Susan is reluctant to get involved after her experience with the twisted serial killer Malcolm Crowley and the danger it posed to her family.
Next, in Uncustomed Goods, Millie branches out into what she believes to be a harmless sideline of dealing in unaccustomed goods. This endeavor leads to her being kidnapped and held in a seedy hotel by some gangsters. On discovering this, Alice goes to Jean and Lucy to help. The girls start to investigate in order to save their friend and, as they do so, uncover a much darker, hidden world of crime.
They had found their place in World War II – brilliant women with brilliant minds, breaking
codes at Bletchley Park that would help the Allies win the war. But when the war was over...
Four graduates of Bletchley Park now at a loose end in a thankless world, have turned their
razor-sharp minds to solving crime. When one of their own, Alice Merren, is imprisoned
and charged with murder, Jean reunites Lucy, Susan and Millie in an attempt to prove
their comrade’s innocence but there are dark forces at work at the heart of the military
establishment out to stop them.
With Susan called overseas, a new partner joins the Bletchley Circle. When Millie is kidnapped, brutalised and threatened by a Maltese gang that she has discovered trafficking young girls from Eastern Europe, the ladies must work fast – and undercover – if they are to save lives and not be thwarted by bribery and corruption at the heart of Scotland Yard.
Millie s import/export sideline leads to her abduction by a crime ring involved in trading perfume, cigarettes and stockings and in human trafficking. After her release, Millie is determined to help those sold into prostitution. Millie, Jean, Lucy and Alice decide to tip off Customs and Excise to intercept a contraband shipment and catch the traffickers.
