The Bletchley Circle centres on a group of codebreakers who leave their quiet post-war lives behind and use their skills to solve a murder.

"The Bletchley Circle combines a vivid portrait of post-war Britain with a taut and original thriller," said Laura Mackie, ITV's head of drama commissioning.

"I'm delighted that we've attracted such a strong cast to bring it to life."

Producer Jake Lushington added: "The Bletchley Circle is about what might have been. Despite the era they have come through, [these women] have the capacity, the ideas and the ability to process evidence and crack a murder case. In many ways it is a form of police profiling which was way ahead of its time."

Filming of the programme will begin in London at the end of April.
