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.

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 love the Cabin Pressure series. They are all hilarious.
The other Cabin Pressure series.
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.
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!
I just love Cabin Pressure. I was suprised to see this little gem and enjoyed it very much. They always make me laugh out loud!
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.
This might get add to my annual Christmas listening!
Benedict Cumberbatch is simply hilarious as the nervous, regulation-stickler Captain.
