Euro Airdot Con in Milan - 23 Aug 2014
John Finnemore graciously answered all our questions today, with lots of laughs in the process. What an excellent day! (Sorry, should’ve said what a brilliant day!)
Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve got an air date!
According to the Euro Airdot Con Twitter account (which, if you’re lucky enough to be attending the con this weekend, I’m envious!), John has just announced that the final episode of Cabin Pressure (“Zurich” for those who weren’t aware) will be airing on Christmas Eve!
So make sure to mark those wall charts, and let the count down begin! (And maybe start planning out a listening party with sushi?*)
*mild attempt at making a Molokai reference.
John just got off the phone with David Tyler with some exciting news!
They recorded so much that they managed to make a two parter out of it.
It will now air on Christmas eve and the night before!
More previews from our exclusive CP Cluedo that we’re designing for you, and will be waiting for you at EuroAirdotCon 2014!
Some hints about the rules: someone is trying to smuggle an invaluable object on GERTI. Who? And where is she/he hiding it?
ARTHUR: Sorry, Mum, did you say 1 minute, 3 minutes, 1 minute?
CAROLYN: Oh, for goodness sake, no, of course not. What cooks for 1 minute and stands for 3? It’s 3, 1, 3!
ARTHUR: Oh, right. Ok, actually I think that’s easy to remember – because I’ll just think of 4-3-3 squadron and only remember to swap the first two numbers and take 3 off the middle one.
CAROLYN: Arthur, are you insane? That’s the stupidest way to remember anything I’ve ever heard.
MARTIN: Also it’s not 4-3-3 squadron. It’s 6-3-3 squadron.
ARTHUR: Oh, yeah, thanks, Skipper. So first I’ve got to add 2 to the first squadron I think it is, to get the real squadron, and then swap…..
CAROLYN: No, don’t do any of that. Just remember it. Just use your brain and remember the three numbers.
ARTHUR: Yes, sorry. 3, 3…..
CAROLYN: No! Oh, come with me.

As we’re finally allowed to post our contributions to the fabulous Cabin Pressure Artbook, here’s mine. Drawn in ink and coloured with watercolour. For more information about the artbook and how and where to purchase it, visit their tumblr or their storenvy.
The four motifs are also available as postcards. Since shipping is more expensive than the actual cards, I could be persuaded to add them to the package if someone buys any of my Sherlock fanart prints or fanbooks ;). Or if you just wanted the cards you could donate some money to support my cycling team for the Prince’s Trust Palace to Palace Bike Ride.
DOUGLAS: My dear old friend, you don’t look a day older than when we first met on that English/Finland school exchange.
MILO: Ohh yeah, yeah.
DOUGLAS: And to celebrate those dear old days, and because luckily I am enormously confident in my masculinity, I have bought you a bunch of flowers.

MARTIN (in a loud whisper): No. I don’t think I should move. I don’t think the bees would like it! I think I’ll just keep very still, and maybe the bees will forget me!
i was reading some of those one sentence horror stories and one of them was “hello passengers this isn’t your captain speaking” and i just thought wow that is exactly something Arthur Shappey would say and then the passengers would be startled and Carolyn would be like “good grief” and Martin would freak out and Douglas would probably cut him off like “your pilots would like to assure you that this aircraft is not being hijacked.”
