Stephanie Cole, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Roger Allam star in the first series of the hit sitcom about the tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult. By John Finnemore (‘The News Quiz’, ‘That Mitchell & Webb Sound’) Run by the forbidding divorcée Carolyn Knapp-Shappey (an unfortunate marriage, namewise, but in Carolyn’s opinion, marginally better than Carolyn Shappey-Knapp), her two pilots are the smooth, experienced and almost-certainly-fired-by-a-big-airline-for-all-round naughtiness Douglas, and struggling almost-competent pilot and sweaty man Martin. All-round help is provided by Carolyn’s near-idiot son, Arthur...In the first of the complete six episodes - ´´´´Qikiqtarjuaq´´´´ - when MJN Air flies a party of tourists near the North Pole, Arthur goes hunting for polar bears, Carolyn for a rogue lemon and Martin for a believable French accent... Then we travel to episode 2 - ´´´´Paris´´´´, and when a bottle of highly-expensive whisky goes missing, Martin becomes the Miss Marple of MJN Air with Arthur assisting as his trusty Doctor Watson and Douglas hindering as his untrusty prime suspect. On to part 3, ´´´´Newcastle´´´´, where love is in the air, but also unfortunately in a small airport in Birmingham - and Martin has to choose between career, romance and fixing a very small tail-light. Part 4 finds us on the way to ´´´´Ottery St Mary´´´´. Martin is a Man With A Van, Douglas flies A Plane With An Otter and Carolyn dates A Pilot With A Problem With Sheep. And two mysteries solved - the name of Carolyn’s dog and the rules of ´´Yellow Car”. Arriving at episode 5, ´´´´Rotterdam´´´´, it´s Lifejacket, Camera, Action as stardom beckons for one of the crew of MJN Air... but who will get to blow the final whistle? And will they look good in a vest? And in the last episode of the series - ´´´´St. Petersburg´´´´ - some vodka and an unwary bird could spell the end of the line for MJN Air, and when Carolyn meet... 1. Language: English.

Book 1: Last Chance for a Lord He´s kissed many ladies. This kiss, however, will be her first. After three years, Miss Emily Green is alone with the man she loves. The boy she once knew has grown into a notorious rake. A lady knows little about dealing with rogues. This rogue is about to get a lesson in dealing with a lady. Book 2: To Know a Lord´s Kiss A single kiss - real or false, either way, she is ruined. Francine isn´t in love with Baron Erwin, but at the end of her third season, he´s the only gentleman who has shown any interest in her. Come what may, she must find a husband. When rumor of a scandalous kiss between Francine and an unnamed duke reaches the baron´s ears, even Baron Erwin abandons her. Despite the rumor, Francine has never been kissed, and now she fears she never will be. Book 3: A Lord´s Dream Liza cannot forget the one and only kiss she´s ever had. Her father´s protege, the widowed Lord Thomas, doesn´t remember that kiss three years ago, for he was drowning his sorrow at the loss of his wife with whisky. Liza can no longer wait for him to notice her. All her friends are married, leaving her behind and with few opportunities to make the acquaintance of new gentlemen. Lord Thomas may not want her, but he might take pity on her and help her find a worthy gentleman. Liza only hopes her heart doesn´t break when he places her in the care of another man. Book 4: Deceived by a Lord Some lord´s lips are made to lie. Tilly is to come out this season, and if her social calls with her mother are any indication, her debut is sure to be a disaster. As if by magic, a gentleman appears who offers promises, and a kiss. Unfortunately, he´s too good to be true. Or is he? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gwyn Olson.
