Publisher's Summary

In this Christmas special 'Molokai' - It's Christmas morning, but when Carolyn schedules an extra stop-off to the Hawaiian island of Molokai, Arthur has just seven minutes to celebrate Christmas. Stephanie Cole, Benedict Cumberbatch & Roger Allam star in the second series of the hit sitcom about the tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult. By John Finnemore (‘The News Quiz’, ‘That Mitchell & Webb Sound’). Run by the forbidding divorcée Carolyn Knapp-Shappey (an unfortunate marriage, name wise, but in Carolyn’s opinion, marginally better than Carolyn Shappey-Knapp), her two pilots are the smooth, experienced and almost-certainly-fired-by-a-big-airline-for-all-round naughtiness Douglas, and struggling almost-competent pilot and sweaty man Martin. All-round help is provided by Carolyn’s near-idiot son, Arthur.

    "Funny, funny, funny!"
    What made the experience of listening to Cabin Pressure: Molokai (Christmas Special 2010) the most enjoyable?

    I love the Cabin Pressure series. They are all hilarious.


    What other book might you compare Cabin Pressure: Molokai (Christmas Special 2010) to and why?

    The other Cabin Pressure series.


    Have you listened to any of Stephanie Cole and Benedict Cumberbatch ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've got all the Cabin Pressure series and I listen to them over and over again. This is at the high standard you can expect, not only from John Finnemore's writing, but also from Stephanie Cole, Roger Allam, Benedict Cumberbatch and John Finnemore as performers.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to mention my favourite moment as it's a spoiler - it's the very end - and as Arthur says it's Brilliant!

    "Brilliant"

    John Finnemore is a genius, and he proves it again with this hysterical Christmas special. I usually listen while I drive, and I almost drove off the road laughing when the bit about the umbrella unfolds in the cockpit. Pure genius, I tell ya. Loved every moment! :)

    "I can't believe I missed this Cabin Pressure."

    What a gift to have found another episode. Absolutely hilarious of course. (Molokai follows Limerick at the end of Series 2.). Then series 3, 4 then Zurich.

    I've spent my entire life around the written word - writing it, editing it, teaching it. So, it's no wonder I also love to read it!

    "A LAUGH-RIOT"

    Whenever I need a swift mood change, I immediately go to Cabin Pressure…it doesn't matter which season or what episode, the program never fails to disappoint me. Every episode is hysterical and well-acted and I laugh heartily at every line. I'm so disappointed that the show is over...

    "Hilarious, as ever"

    I was thrilled to find that there was another episode of Cabin Pressure I hadn't listened to yet. It really cracks me up. The voice talent is just top notch.

    "Arthur keeps the Christmas spirit!"

    If you love Cabin Pressure you won't be disappointed by this Christmas special that really does a very good job of authentically celebrating Christmas with these excellent characters. Very Christmassy, but you could listen to it at any time of the year.

    Would you listen to Cabin Pressure: Molokai (Christmas Special 2010) again? Why?

    The whole series had me bursting into laughter so often that I must have looked like a complete loony to my fellow commuters. I keep revisiting it whenever I need cheering up of the audio kind.

    "just brilliant"

    just brilliantiant, the only thing that would make it better would be if it was twice the length. cabin pressure just gets better and better. funniest radio series in decades. great writing, running gags and character development which is rare in comedy. impossible not to laugh even on sixth listen.

    John Finnemore deserves a medal for the Cabin Pressure programmes. I played this to my husband on a car journey and we were both laughing so much we over shot our Motorway exit

    As a one-off from the regular series, this is up to standard. Witty, full of funny moments and I would recommend without hesitation.
