This TV miniseries portrays the lives of four British women in the years after WWII. All women worked as codebreakers in the top secret Bletchley Park, helping British forces interpret German codes during the war. As the women have returned to their ordinary lives, they find themselves restless and discontent with the mundanity of female life in peacetime Britain and long to engage more fully in meaningful work for their country as they did during the war. At the beginning of the series, housewife Susan learns about a series of murders that continue to occur in the London area and begins to recognise patterns connecting the killings. This inspires her to return to her codebreaking past, and she reaches out to her former colleagues to track down the serial killer.
