One period drama per post: The Bletchley Circle
"We’re doing it like we did at Bletchley. Treating the crimes like a code, using pattern analyse to all the facts of the case we can gather"
One of the things that I love best about the Bletchley Circle is how it recognizes that women have different kinds of personalities and different strengths and different desires? And how the portrayals are balanced and human and done with such kindness.
Like, Jean’s efficiency and sense of duty…
BTW guys, if you’re wondering why i’m psyched that this “bletchley circle” thing got renewed for a second season — YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY BE WATCHING THIS MINISERIES.
- the four main castmembers are women.
- who secretly fight crime using codebreaking skills they learned while doing top secret work…
The single biggest reason why I believe that Johnlock will be canon is that Mrs. Hudson’s entire job description is “make tea and foreshadow shit.”
Blank Mrs. Hudson Macro : (x)
skulls-and-tea has created a meme inspired by something I wrote, which has completely made my day. These are great!
Hudders knows what’s up.
I will have Hudders on a teapot or die trying.
they should market Mrs. Hudson brand tea
and the tea should take you on some kind of spirit walk so you see the near future and can come back to wittily comment on it
I wonder why the people who keep fighting about the fact that John MUST be heterosexual because he says not gay are not also arguing about the fact that Mrs Hudson is strictly the landlady because she says “not your housekeeper”
If you don’t think that TPTB writing and producing Sherlock want to make this show something more dead-serious historic than just another SH adaptation for a little shallow lark on the side of their day jobs, then you are not watching the same program, or the same interviews, as I am. You are instead watching some anachronistic knockoff created solely by the very thick filters in your own brain.
Everybody please watch this. You won’t regret it.
Ah, the true mystery of Sherlock.
It’s not a stupid question! I just use acronyms for the titles:

- TRF: The Reichenbach Fall

Is that what you meant? Let me know if it’s something else you’re not getting!
