Yup, and you would have been right.  I can accept MOST of 
the changes due to
dramatic license, etc.  But, the part where Turing HIMSELF 
decides what info can
be acted on is so FAR out of touch!  Churchill PERSONALLY 
had to make some
of the toughest decisions, such as to not evacuate Coventry 
when they knew it
was next for getting blitzed.
