The Bletchley Circle will not return for a third series, ITV has confirmed.

The period drama, starring Anna Maxwell-Martin, Rachael Stirling and Julie Graham, was set in the early 1950s and focused on four women who worked at the wartime code-breaking centre Bletchley Park.

News of the show's cancellation broke on Twitter, with cast members including Julie Graham encouraging viewers to protest the decision.

ITV has since confirmed to Digital Spy that the series, which launched in 2012, has not been re-commissioned.

A second series of the drama aired earlier this year, with the broadcaster describing The Bletchley Circle as a "wonderful addition to our drama slate" when announcing the new run in May 2013.

ITV's Director of Drama Commissioning Steve November added at the time: "We're delighted that it's returning to ITV with two new and exciting stories."
