Is it just me, or does the new Bob the Builder look a bit like John Finnemore?

Interviewing John Finnemore

As some of you may know, there’s a Cabin Pressure convention called EuroAirDotCon happening this weekend in Milan. I’m not in attendance, but benlocked (on the left in the pic) kindly let me know that she just interviewed John Finnemore while wearing one of my Souvenir Programme shirts. 
She also said “John loved your shirt! (As does everyone else at the convention!)" and I am now very chuffed indeed!

benlocked asked: I love your mini JFSP crew... will they be for sale as a shirt because I'd buy 3 :)

I’m delighted that you like the mini Souvenir Programme posse! I’ve now made them available to buy, for you and for anyone else who wants them.

You can choose from a shirt with text on it, a shirt without text on it, a sticker, or a card. I hope this constitutes just enough choice, at least for five minutes…

I’m going to a recording of John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme tonight, so in tribute, here are mini versions of the JFSP gang.

Ride a pony in dungarees! Wear a medallion! Own a garage and possibly a car (not yellow, but you can’t have everything)! All of this glamour could be YOURS when you become an air steward in the 1970s, the decade when “living with flair” also meant “living in flares”.
But nobody mention this to Arthur Shappey, please. He’ll be ever so disappointed when he finds out that applications closed long before he was born…

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…

At the Q&A session after the pre-flight tryout show of Cabin Pressure, episode Y

  • 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...
