OKAY I WANT A GOOSE. AND I WANT MORE CABIN PRESSURE
Thank you for everyone’s lovely comments about the crochet things we made for John Finnemore. You gave us the encouragement we needed to make some more.
We have just opened our Etsy shop complete with Cabin Pressure goodies!
Heres to fangirling my way through 2013 with CalendarGeeks! Happy new year tumblr! xxx
These are the Cabin Pressure dolls that I made for John Finnemore. I waited until after the recording to give them to him, and he loved them!
I am going to be making more if anyone is interested
Brilliant! These really are very cute :D
Hello there. Thanks to a very lovely someone, I managed to go to the recording yesterday. Queuing wise, I didn’t turn up that early (at about 8:30) and was 8th in line- the earliest arrivals were from France and Belgium and had turned up at 6:30, so even they hadn’t needed to camp out, though a fair few people behind us in line had had the sensible idea to bring blankets and things (it was a very cold day).
Here’s an entirely spoiler free but very full account of the recording (spoiler free, that is, unless a blooper CD is going to be released…) Under the cut, therefore, are ‘funny things that happened or went a bit wrong without revealing any details of the contents of the episodes.’
A very kind person gave me this Carolyn-shaped gingerbread (wo)man while I was waiting in the queue and I still haven’t had the heart to eat it (if you are reading this, thank you!). It cheered me up no end after sitting there for over three hours in the freezing cold. I took a book with me and it was actually an amazingly productive morning’s work. I was near some people who were working on some truly awe-inspiring craft projects, including a crochet Captain’s hat complete with travelling lemon and a stuffed Snoopadoop (if you are reading this, I salute your incredible talents and dedication).
I can see that other people have written very thorough accounts of the actual recording, but here are a couple of my favourite moments:
- Roger Allam making the entire room crack up simply by walking up to a particular microphone
- John Finnemore pretending to sob on Roger Allam’s shoulder when Stephanie Cole suggested changing a line because it was ‘weak’ (for the character, not the writing)
- Parade’s End and Sherlock jokes by the cast/crew (the latter was about jumping off buildings NOT COOL FINNEMORE)
- The loudness of the cheer at the end of the closing credits is directly proportional to the number of times Benedict has messed them up - at the end of the second episode we raised the roof.
As for the episodes themselves, the two they recorded are truly golden - everyone has a massive treat in store. No spoilers at John Finnemore’s express request, but here are some things you can look forward to:
- character development
- a lot of feels
- truly gorgeous plot construction (maybe it’s because I’m currently writing an essay about Menandrean dramaturgy, but the way the second episode started with a load of seemingly disparate elements which then dovetailed beautifully in the final scene made my heart sing)
- plus laughs aplenty, of course
It’s kind of surreal seeing lots of photos of the back of my head or my shoes on all the Cabin Pressure blogs (if you know me irl you’ll probably be able to spot me from my outerwear in several of them). Still can’t believe that of the 17,000 people who applied for tickets I was lucky enough to get one!
I also got given some ginger bread, I especially loved the Dalek one! People in the queue were all lovely and so friendly. Thank you for your lovely comments about my crafting! It was a great day :)
