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.

I could watch this over and over

Comments about PBS The Bletchley Circle Season 1 DVD:

I happened upon Season 2 on PBS and so thoroughly enjoyed it I had to purchase Season 1 to see what I had missed! I was not disappointed! The characters and story are well-written and well-played and I loved all the period details. I'm watching it again now to see what I may have missed the first time through. I also liked the actor interviews as they gave a little more insight to the characters. Please continue producing this show!

INTELLIGENT WOMEN IN WORLD WAR AND AFTER

By ANGEL EYES

Comments about PBS The Bletchley Circle Season 1 DVD:

Fantastic showing of great actors and the historical context for women is most enlightening. I bought the DVD for both of my daughter in laws. A great example of what women faced during those decades and how they overcame them. So relevant for women today as well.
