Kirrin Island
No one knows exactly where Kirrin Island is. It was once the scene of many jolly japes for the Famous Five (whose ginger beer-fuelled mayhem would these days be ASBOd). Now home to the same types of people as the rest of the UK, with the added bonus of an island mentality and a disconcertingly concentrated gene pool. It has radio and TV stations, a dysfunctional council (a coalition, of course), shops and businesses, a mafia and even its very own social media billionaire. Explore the island with the map above to hear the characters – and then download the show.
