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.

    "The genius of Finnemore and the superb acting crew of GER-TY"

    So, the genius of John Finnemore and the superb acting crew of GERTY. WONDERFUL and joyous story of Carolyn booking everyone to fly once more without their consent and yet it all works out brilliantly and christmassily.

    If you don't like well written/performed comedy then go watch some paint dry because this show is one of the best comedies written.

    "Glorious fun!"
    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.

    "A great episode of a great series"

    "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.

    "Just brilliant!"

    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

    "Very merry for Christmas"

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

    "A Worthwhile Christmas Special"

    I usually hate "Christmas Specials" in any TV or Radio series. They seem to just be an excuse for the writers to slack off and give us sappy platitudes.

    But the Cabin Pressure: Molokai Christmas Special is the exception to the rule. It does relate to Christmas, but in an intelligent way, with dialog and a story that, if possible, is even better than usual.

    "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! :)

    "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...

    "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.

    "It's an MJN Christmas. Brilliant!"

    It's Christmas and the crew of MJN are as busy as Santa's elves (and Arthur is definitely as excitable as one). Join Carolyn, Martin, Douglas and Arthur for some festive fun in this half-hour Christmas special, Molokai (which is an island in Hawai'i). As usual, John Finnemore's script is laugh our loud funny and the performances are outstanding. Whether you're a seasoned Cabin Pressure fan, or testing out an episode, you'll find this audiobook is brilliant.
