LOVE AND KISSES, EDWARD HYDE.

The Jekyll and Hyde sketch is definitely one of my favourite Souvenir Programme sketches ever. There’s something about the combination of childish rudeness and Mr Hyde’s silly voice that has me in stitches every time…

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the airport speaking. It wishes to inform you that Cabin Pressure Christmas cards are now on sale from my Redbubble shop. There are four designs to choose from: Merry Jolly Noël, Martin’s Brolly, Get Dressed with Arthur and Le Bear Polar. Also, if you buy 8 cards, Redbubble gives you a 20% discount!

The MJN crew are also available on a t-shirt or a sticker, either of which would make an ideal present for anyone who doesn’t want a Toblerone or a hat with a lemon taped to it…

And now, my own contribution to mums-the-nerd's Medieval Cabin Pressure meme. (You can make your own over here!)

I’m enjoying the current series of John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme so much that I think the BBC should commission tie-in novels for some of the best sketches. Here’s my pitch for a couple of passionate page-turners…

Here is some news! I seem to have opened a Redbubble shop, and my first t-shirt design, depicting this mini version of the Cabin Pressure crew, is now on sale. Tell your friends, your relatives, the beneficent deity of your choice, or indeed anyone else you can convince to buy you a present!

More designs, featuring Sherlock, Hannibal and other fandoms, will be added in the not-too-distant future. I already have a shortlist of ideas that I’m sloooowly working my way through, but if there’s a bit of my art that you would especially like to wear on your torso, do let me know and I’ll give it some consideration…

Edited to add: The same design is now available as a sticker or a greetings card or postcard!

For some bizarre reason, I found myself pondering the question “What would a Stone Age version of Cabin Pressure be called?” Here’s my answer. I also imagine that Gerti would be an elderly and temperamental pterodactyl….

I’ve made a new batch of Cabin Pressure icons, including all sort of silliness from series 4. Take as many as you like and use them anywhere you want!

Arthur seemed very keen to emulate the sophistication of black and white times, so I thought I’d give him a little help. Heaven only knows he needs it…

Good news, Cabin Pressure fans! I’ve used my high-powered media access to peer into the future and can now exclusively reveal a story that should make you all MUCH happier about the future of the series! Admittedly, the rest of the world might find it a TEENSY bit tougher to get used to, but I’m sure they’ll learn to cope somehow…

  • Me (innocently): So, a massive cliffhanger, involving Martin, with a weird Swiss place name in the title. Where'd you get that idea from?
  • John Finnemore (innocently): No idea, it just came to me...
“Have you ever thought of recording a relaxation tape?” - Douglas Richardson, Xinzhou
I thought Douglas’s idea was a rather excellent way for Carolyn to earn a bit of extra cash for MJN. Now all she has to do is convince everyone else in the world that she knows best…

Last week’s tale from That Show With Daft Folk On A Plane (you know the one I mean?) made me love the Game Of Words With Just One Sound. So I thought: if their plane breaks or must be sold and they need new jobs, Doug and Ca could run a shop that sells books. And here are some books that they could sell…

This week’s Cabin Pressure featured the excellent idea of using Arthur’s unstoppable helpfulness as a sort of superpower. But why stop there? Arthur could be an ACTUAL superhero. In fact, he could be LOTS of superheroes…

While you await your next Tumblr connection, please relax and enjoy a spot of Cabin Pressure guest-star fan art. I liked Princess Theresa a lot and based her face on the actress who played her.

In tribute to this week’s Cabin Pressure, here’s an ill-advised treat from the MJN drinks trolley. Serve with a slice of travelling lemon and keep away from direct sunlight…
