Cabin Pressure Christmas Special: Molokai

Get dressed, you merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay! For it is Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Day!

I love pretty much every second of this episode, but my favourite little thing is the extra shot of adrenaline that kicks in on the second ‘Christmas’ in Arthur’s song, as if, in saying it, he realises afresh that it’s Christmas.
