Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Cole (Doc Martin), Benedict Cumberbatch, and Roger Allam (The Thick of It) star in the complete second series of the hit sitcom about the pilots of a tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult.

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-around naughtiness Douglas, and struggling, almost competent Martin. All-round help is provided by Carolyn's near-idiot son, Arthur.

Written by John Finnemore, writer for The News Quiz and That Mitchell & Webb Sound.

    "Perfection."

    Funny, cleaver, well acted, and clean. Only 4 seasons sadly. I would listen to 10 season if they made them.

    "In a word ... brilliant"

    Buy this audiobook. Buy it now. Buy it fast. You'll laugh until you're sore in the stomach listening to the adventures of MJN air, Britain's least competent but most endearing airline. This is British radio humour at its very best, and it has Benedict Cumberbatch in the cast (as Captain Martin Crieff)! The entire series is excellent - there's not a dud episode among them. I cannot wait for more episodes so come, and have listened to these ones many times and they just keep staying funny. This is a future classic, destined for the comedy hall of fame.

    "Best new radio show out there"
    What did you love best about Cabin Pressure?

    All of the performances and writing are top notch. I havent found a funnier or better written show yet.


    What other book might you compare Cabin Pressure to and why?

    This show reminds me alot of the Hicthhikers Guide to the Galaxy

    "A Joy and a Half"
    Where does Cabin Pressure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not a book, it's a radio program with an audience. Funny dialogue.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The actors are wonderful


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Like many others, I downloaded it because of Benedict Cumberbatch and it also stars Roger Allam that I just watched in the "Endeavor" TV series as a detective. Everyone's performances are very good and with endearing characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes ! Cleaning the house !


    Any additional comments?

    May not be for everyone. It's very silly British humor.

    After enjoying the first series so much, I bought this one as well. I listen to it while knitting and I have a great time with it.

    What did you like most about Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 2?

    The whole series had me bursting into laughter so often that I must have looked like a complete loony to my fellow commuters. I keep revisiting it whenever I need cheering up of the audio kind.

    "Brilliant !"

    Another stunning series. Great writing, excellent cast, very very funny. The last episode 'Limerick' has to be one of the funniest programmes I have ever heard. However, don't take my word for it, try it for yourself and brighten up a dull day.

    "Great series"
    If you could sum up Cabin Pressure in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, genius, excellent.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have all series of this, but I've only listened to series one and two so far. Both have been great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No - comic, rather than moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Although I'd heard of this show through friends, I hadn't realised how funny it was. A long car journey led me to stick it on, and I was most pleasantly surprised. The characters are brilliantly written and very well-portrayed by the cast. I particularly enjoyed John Finnemore's character, Arthur, the pleasantly brain-dead cabin boy.

    If you could sum up Cabin Pressure in three words, what would they be?

    Ruddy Good Fun


    Any additional comments?

    Extremely well performed, the principle being Roger Allam who gives a Black Adder goes forth worthy effort. His delivery and timing is nearing comedy perfection. The rest of the cast is top-notch as well. The stories are well structured and fun. This is the best thing on Radio 4.
