So Julian was cleaning up the mess he made in the hotel room and lied about it being Masterston?Yes the Jessie stuff seemed weird, I know we don't her full personality as she hasn't talked a lot but I don't see her wanting to leave the band in the lurch without a singer.
Julian has got under her skin.. not romantically but showing her what she could have..the car,luring her with the producer story,dangling the carrot..her personality change definitely rings true..look how many bands have a member who suddenly gets too big for their boots and thinks they can make it alone and have the spotlight on themselves..there is always one..I am assuming like you Julian was clearing up his own mess the first time around and not Mastersons..sure there will be more to come to fill us in.

The music gets more curious. In the scene in the club, the first tune, a New Orleans style blues, was pretty timeless, yet the second song could just have been sung by the 1940's Andrews Sisters.
It's the saxophone which sound most out of era to me, though I didn't notice a high F# key on one, so if there weren't, that would be in keeping with the era.
In fact the production values seem fine and everything seems of the period. As a drama it has its merits with a good cast.
I've not watched part 2 yet, is this in part 2?

Thanks. Bit daft of me to visit here before watching really but the music isn't that much of a spoiler anyway. I wasn't sure which episode you meant because you had previously mentioned WRT episode 1 that the music in ep. 1 had put you off watching more.

I'm afraid it's a bit of a case of "passive viewing."

Ah, agree with your assessment as a drama though.

If anyone likes the music and wants the album. Anyone with a smartphone can download an app called Deezer and then download this album on it for nothing. I downloaded it last night. And its all legitimate and not illegal.

Is that supposed to be a joke?

In the thirties the majority of people smoked. There's nothing wrong with showing an accurate representation of the times.
It ain't a public health promotion video.

I've caught up with the first two episodes on the iplayer, and so far I think it's brilliant. Not in the slightest bit boring.

It's nice to actually have a period drama with good acting - there have been a few with poor acting just recently.

It took me a while to get used to Matthew Goode with that accent though; I think I've only seen him play posh characters before!

Are Rosie and Stanley colleagues with benefits or is Stanley playing away with Pamela? I think Rosie is kidding herself if she thinks Stanley wants her as there are pics of Stamela all over the office.

Also some of the accents were rather dodgy- Louis' accent veered from American to English to African in one sentence.
I assumed that was deliberate - and rather nicely done I thought. He sounds terribly well spoken and English when he's talking to posh and/or white audiences, and far more relaxed and natural when he's in private. I'm just watching the repeat on 2, and noticing it.

I recorded this and it cut off just as Louis entered the bedroom at the end!

I take it he just found Jessie in a "state" or did I miss something else???? Please help!

No you didn't miss anything that was broadcast.. what you saw was the cutoff point, just like the start of part 2 ,there appeared to be something deleted...good drama though

Not sure if you are pulling my leg or not, but either way I can't watch it on iPlayer as I live in ROI and we cannot access it here

You definitely missed something very very important! Ignore the poster saying you missed nothing - looks like they missed it too!

I just watched the first two episodes and really enjoyed them, I don't care if programmes are historically accurate or not unless they are claiming to be!

I am really enjoying this series but one thing about tonight's episode I thought was a bit odd regarding the party that was held on New Year's Eve in that barn. The doors were wide open and there did not seem to be any heating, the ladies in their flimsy gowns must have been freezing!!.

From what I saw of the trailers, the music was promoted quite strongly. As the series has progressed, it is getting progressively of less importance, the drama being far more interesting.
It reminds me of the phrase "Incidental music" the term for background music in classic films and quite apt in this case.
The "barn" just looked like a row of bog standard garages, common in big houses in the early part of the twentieth century.
