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.

Critic reviews

"The more I listen to John Finnemore's Cabin Pressure, the more I think what a stonking masterpiece it is. Perfect in every department." (Philip Pullman)

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!

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.
