The first episode "Blood onTheir Hands," opens with former Bletchley Park girl Alice Merren in prison awaiting trial for the murder of the eminent scientist John Richards. Driven by her belief in Alice’s innocence and that she is hiding the truth about John’s death, Jean attempts to reunite the circle to help establish the innocence of one of their own.cover-up of a chemical spill. The women use the skills honed at Bletchley Park — and take dangerous chances — to try to exonerate Alice.
