An undeniably great man. It's tragic to think he died in ignimony and it wasn't until twenty years after his death that the full extent of his heroism became apparent due to the declassification of the documents pertaining to his work at Bletchley.
One must note he made some terrible choices tho; not least the decision to allow himself to be chemically castrated to avoid a custodial sentence. A gay man not wanting to be sent to prison is rather like a kid not wanting to go to a sweet shop, surely?
