‘The Imitation Game’ Is Not Only a Tribute to Alan Turing, But One of the Most Important Movies of the Year (Guest Blog) I sadly never had the opportunity to meet my uncle, Alan Turing. We share some very basic similarities — we both attended Sherborne and King’s College, both have an affinity for mathematics, both have ties to Bletchley Park — but that’s about where we’d have to drawn the line. I couldn’t possibly claim to have achieved anything in the realm of what he did, but nevertheless I’ve always considered my relation to him a tremendous source of pride. If we were to ignore his presence in our family background, we’d be turning our backs on a link to one of history’s truly great men.
