The Turing Test
The Second World War is drawing to a close. Alan Turing, the code-breaker who has been critical to the allied war effort, is called in to break a mysterious new cypher. It’s coming from Germany, and everyone assumes it is German — everyone except Turing’s new friend, The Doctor, indeed it seems The Doctor knows too much about the code and the code-makers — and when people start to die, even Turing wonders it The Doctor is the one to blame.
Graham Greene, novelist and spymaster, has also encountered The Doctor, and thinks he’s a rum enough chap, but in a remote African village he has encountered something far stranger.
To find out the truth, they must all cross the front line and travel through occupied Germany — right into the firing line of the bloodiest war in history. What they find there has no human explanation— and only The Doctor has the answers. Or maybe, they’re just more questions…
