Totally missed this one for some reason — thanks to Katje for pointing it up! A 2011 BBC documentary/dramatization in which Ed Stoppard plays Turing.


Atomic Robo

This comic includes an evil A.I. named ALAN who takes on the form of its creator, Alan Turing. (Thanks, Jake Hawken!)


The Imitation Game by Ian McEwan

This 1980 short play features a cryptographer named Tanner who mentors a young woman who's recruited into the Women's Royal Navy — and McEwan said that he wanted to write a play about Turing, but decided to fictionalize instead.


Enigma by Robert Harris

This novel, adapted into a movie script by Tom Stoppard, follows Turing's cryptographic team as they race against time to break the toughest Nazi cipher — although the main character is another cryptographer, Tom Jericho. As Imitation Game writer Graham Moore explains here, "Though clearly inspired by Turing, Jericho is straight, and in fact the love triangle in which he finds himself ends up changing the course of the war. In a sense, we find here an imagined version of Turing's real-life relationship with his fellow codebreaker Joan Clarke, to whom Turing was briefly engaged in 1941."


Breaking the Code

And last but definitely not least, there's Hugh Whitemore's fantastic play, which was adapted for television starring Derek Jacobi — the whole thing is right here, and it's an absolute must watch. Just be prepared to have your heart shredded.


And let's give the last word to Moore himself, whose Imitation Game screenplay topped the Blacklist of the best unproduced scripts: "as Turing's legacy lives on, so should his legend."
