“I have noticed that when all the lights are on, people tend to talk about what they are doing – their outer lives. Sitting round in candlelight or firelight, people start to talk about how they are feeling – their inner lives. They speak subjectively, they argue less, there are longer pauses. To sit alone without any electric light is curiously creative. I have my best ideas at dawn or at nightfall, but not if I switch on the lights – then I start thinking about projects, deadlines, demands, and the shadows and shapes of the house become objects, not suggestions, things that need to done, not a background to thought.”—Jeanette Winterson (Why I Adore The Night)

It’s the start of a bittersweet moment for us Cabin Pressure fans - John Finnemore wrote that he’s in the process of writing the last episode of the beloved radio series.
I came to know about CP at about the end of series 2/beginning of series 3. I admit that Benedict was the initial draw, but I stayed for the comedy, cast dynamics, and the characters. The series has brought me nothing but joy - it was always a pick-me-up whenever I felt down. I could listen to the same episode a multiple of times, and still laugh to the point of tears (this made it awkward for the bike rides back home from work - I think the cars driving by were wondering why I was maniacally laughing as I pedaled on by…). Geniusly crafted and executed, CP is a gem of radio comedy.
One thing that amazed me was the geographic span of fans who listen to the show, and how much enthusiasm there is for the show (in the forms of fan art, cosplay, etc).
So to thank John and the cast for their amazing work, I thought we could play on the fact that CP has such a global reach - especially since we all love a show that takes its crew around the world!
Here’s the idea (in progress): record a message that says “Thank You” to the cast in a language you know. It can be the one you speak, the one you’re learning, or the one that is spoken in your home country. You can say it to the camera, write it on a sign and take a picture, sing it… whatever! It’s your chance to be creative. You can do it in your room, out in public… wherever! But it may be extra special if we get some footage from fans in areas that are mentioned throughout the show. :)
Again, it’s just an idea at the moment - but I’m curious to know if people would be willing to participate in such a project. Also - if anyone is willing to help put together the project, that would be great as well. I’m just really gauging interest.
Please spread the word around. It’d be fun if we can get a lot of people to do it - and then put it together before the taping of the final episode.
I really like this idea! If you need any help with it let me know. We should definitely get the fandot together and do something to celebrate the end of the show.
Maybe do something similar to what we did with HappyBirthdayBenedict in which people could submit their messages? Easy to forward a link to John and crew and everyone can see it without having to rely on physical compilations…
