I also am perplexed after reading some of the reviews about how the PBS/US version always, and I mean always, cuts parts out of fabulous dramas. I always buy the original version from UK/Acorn if I want to really see the drama. PBS is always cutting parts out - case in point: North and South with Richard Armitage. I watched it on PBS and had to own it. Watching it on the dvd from UK I realized there were parts missing on the tv version and suddenly parts became clear! Why does PBS cut these scenes or rather BBC America as well? Do they think we are dumb Americans or something? Please, please do not cut the scenes out - it is very frustrating!

The show is great. My deduction of two stars here is due to my inability to figure out whether the US PBS DVD is the slightly cut version broadcast in the US on PBS or the original full version as broadcast on ITV.

The broadcast timings for the UK version are 150 minutes. For the US version they are 135 minutes. Whether this is the product of the PAL to NTSC conversion slowdown, cuts, or both is an open question that I can't answer at this point and PBS has refused to answer.

As a result I won't be buying the US version. I will be purchasing the UK Acorn release.

Bletchley Circle-Original and Series 2

By billybob

from Sacramento. CA

Comments about PBS The Bletchley Circle DVD (U.K. Edition):

Not being familiar with the program, I had hoped it would be based on WWII Bletchley situations in the breaking of German coding and messages. Aside from that, I enjoyed the mystery stories.

Comments about PBS The Bletchley Circle DVD (U.K. Edition):

I caught one episode on PBS late night a while ago and I was hooked. So happy I made the investment in this DVD series. Plots twist and turn, keeping the viewer in suspense as the girls work through their mysteries. Love this series - looking to get season 2 soon! :)
