Go To

Nick, his sister Lauren, and their friends Horace and Jason are Afro-British, a Jazz quartet, and accidental time travellers after a local tramp takes them back in time.

Series 1 takes them to 1926, where they befriend young socialite Victoria.Series 2 finds them in 1958, where they catch up with Victoria, now older, poorer, and has a 32 year old son from her dalliance with Jason

This series provides examples of:

  • Jazz: The reason that the band is able to survive comfortably is that they are a relatively good jazz band.
  • No Equal-Opportunity Time Travel: Somewhat averted. The band isn't accepted as well as they might be, and still encounter racism in various forms, but London is sufficiently cosmopolitan in both time periods that being there isn't risky.
  • The Roaring '20s: The first series is set in London in 1926.


How well does it match the trope?
