Described by one critic as an inspired update of The Thin Man, the lighthearted British comedy-mystery series The Beiderbecke Affair begins, per its title, when jazz fan Trevor orders a set of Bix Beiderbecke LPs from a mysterious blonde saleswoman, and promptly receives the wrong items. While trying to locate the missing music, Trevor and his girlfriend Jill discover a number of sub-rosa elements in their community, including clandestine parking lot meetings, black market goods involving a church basement, and multi-level corruption.
