If you’ve been debating whether or not to watch The Bletchley Circle, a miniseries set in 1952 following four women who worked as code breakers at Bletchley Park during World War II and reunite to solve murders, you should probably just go ahead and do it. The first series is available on Netflix (in the US at least). If you feel like spending a little money, the first and second series are available for purchase on iTunes (again, in the US. If any non-US followers have recommendations for ways to watch, let me know).
The blog Hello, Tailor has a couple of excellent meta articles on Bletchley Circle and fashion (with slight spoilers) here: Part 1, Part 2.
Many of the issues dealt with in the show, in particular how women navigated the post-war world, are closely aligned with what I expect we’ll see in Agent Carter (and what we already saw in the short). For those interested in post-war Peggy, I’d highly recommend checking it out.

Nightwitches

Die NachtHexen

Ночные ведьмы

For those who don’t know, Nightwitches were Russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of German lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappiest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. To stop Germans from hearing them coming and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to German positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
Their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
