Summary

Set during World War Two, Hut 33 follows the adventures of a team of codebreakers at Bletchley Park as they work tirelessly to break German codes, matching wits with the fabled Enigma Machine. Unfortunately, they hate each other.

Archie is a stroppy Geordie socialist revolutionary while Professor Charles Gardner is a toffee-nosed snob. In theory, the immensely stupid 3rd Lt. Joshua Featherstonhaugh-Marshall is in charge of the hut, but he is still struggling with even the most basic concepts, such as his name. They are joined by child prodigy Gordon and the silent Winstanley. There's also Mrs Best, the lascivious landlady, and the hut's Polish secretary, Minka, the only competent member of the team - although her answers to everything usually involve violence.

Starring Tom Goodman-Hill as Archie, Robert Bathurst as Professor Charles Gardner, Alex MacQueen as 3rd Lt. Joshua Featherstonhaugh-Marshall, Fergus Craig as Gordon, Lill Roughley as Mrs Best, and Olivia Colman as Minka.

Produced by Adam Bromley.

Code breaking at its funniest

A very funny show that am glad to have in my collection (prior to this release only series 2was available).

Sitcom based at Bletchley Park in WW2.

Silly fun!

A good fun listen, in the 'Dad's Army' way. Worth a listen and actually quite well written.

Mildly amusing, but spoiled by the homophobia

This show an an excellent premise, with a mostly excellent cast, though it is spoiled by some run of the mill writing, which occasionally degrades into transphobic and homophobic punchlines in order to eek out the laughs. Gave up part of the way through as it was getting wearing.

Rather dated and more than a little offensive

I found this funny in parts, but was put off by the overt homophobia and racism.

Milk snorted out of my nose

I am a sucker for anything with Olivia Colmen, so of course I got this. Hut 33 is about a group of people during WWII who are suppose to be cracking codes, but other things happen. Like class warfare, the visit of a royal, or even air raids. The acting is great, the lines wonderful. Do not drink while listening.
