Pennyworth, Season 1 (Epix, 2019) A slick but disturbingly visceral action crime drama set in a reimagined (Gotham sister city?) post-war London. While any given episode is diverting enough, the overarching plot lacks focus and the Batman character prefiguring is distracting and strained (in truth totally incongruous).
The Bletchley Circle, Series 2 by Guy Burt (ITV, 2014) Like its predecessor, The Bletchley Circle series two showcases an all-female lead cast that brings strength and credibility to British post-war period drama. The mysteries — a brace of two-parters — afford the characters initiative and independence while staying within the realms of believability.
