Residents of New Westminster may recognize a few locales on Netflix in a murder mystery series that recently hit the online streaming service.

Bletchley Circle: San Francisco was filmed between March and June 2018, according to its IMDb page, and released to Citytv in Canada later that year. On Sunday, however, the series made its debut on the streaming giant.

Indoor sets in the series were largely filmed in a Maple Ridge studio, but it also includes outdoor scenes shot in New West and Langley, according to a Sunday morning B.C. government news release.

The plot follows two Bletchley Circle codebreakers from the United Kingdom who head to the U.S. to join up with American and Canadian codebreakers to solve a mystery.

The provincial government is promoting the series as an example of a B.C. success story in the local film industry.

“Bletchley Circle is an inspiring example of a high-profile dramatic series developed and produced by a local B.C.-owned company,” said Lisa Beare, minister of tourism, arts and culture.

More than 160 people worked on the set of the show on any given day, according to the news release, and despite its San Francisco setting, the series was locally owned and controlled. Outside two British actors, all of the on-set crew were from B.C., the government release said.
