Amidst all the new tv drama premieres in the UK here are two PBS shows for North American viewers:
First, Call the Midwife season two began showing on Sunday nights on March 31st. Fans can look forward to seven more episodes, as well as (eventually) a Christmas special, of this glass half full drama about midwives working in East London in the 1950s. The first episode is available online at PBS.
Second is The Bletchley Circle starting on Sunday, April 21st. This three-part murder mystery is set in post WWII London. A group of women use the top-secret code breaking skills that they acquired during the war to track a serial killer. You can check out a promo here.
