Can’t two Yorkshire schoolteachers stay out of trouble? Not when one is a jazz fan with a knack for sleuthing. Two years after the events of The Beiderbecke Affair, Trevor Chaplin (James Bolam, New Tricks) and Jill Swinburne (Barbara Flynn, Cracker) are enjoying a calm, settled life. Then someone gives Trevor a Bix Beiderbecke tape that includes a top-secret conversation about nuclear waste. Suddenly life isn’t so quiet anymore: A man shows up at their flat and threatens to break their bones. Six armed suits start following them wherever they go.
Like The Beiderbecke Affair, Trevor and Jill’s second adventure is filled with tongue-in-cheek repartee and odd characters: a man without a name, octogenarian Americans on holiday, and the oldest suffragette in town (Beryl Reid, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy). Written by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Alan Plater (A Very British Coup), it also features a jazzy soundtrack composed by BAFTA-winning musician Frank Ricotti.
This series (there are 2 other titles in the series) is almost unknown, but a lot of fun. Somewhat dated, the charming characters make it worth watching and enjoying. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Terry Weiss
