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.

    "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.

    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.

    "Best R4 comedy in years"

    Beautifully written and acted with thoughtfully constructed plots. It couldn't be done with anyone other than Roger Allam (his voice is perfect). The storylines are always convoluted and clever and it even makes my husband laugh out loud and he is someone who's not fond the spoken audio word.



    Roll on the next series.

    "Plenty of laughs"

    Cabin Pressure is fantastic! Even if you're not interested in aviation, it's a great sitcom about a group of people who are stuck with working together. If you are interested in aviation, it's even funnier. Series 1 is (I think) the funniest, but you'll still laugh out loud!

    "Utterly Brilliant"

    Many’s the time I’ve been walking to work listening to this and got odd looks, because no matter how hard I try I just can’t help but laugh out loud. Cabin Pressure is one of the best Radio 4 comedies I’ve come across. If you’ve never listened to it then it’s good to start at series 1 as you’ll get more of the jokes, but even if you just picked up here at series 2 you would still be laughing yourself silly within a few minutes of pressing play, I guarantee it.

    "Excellent comedy with laughs and rye smiles"

    This is the second series of a superb UK radio comedy series. Based on an air dot ('to have an airline you need more than one plane!') the crew strive to make money using Gertie often spending time entertaining themselves and sometimes at the expense of their customers. The Faulty Towers of the air?

    This series has brought my family so much fun and laughter! I relisten to it often when I need a bit of cheering up and it doesn't fail to deliver. If you are dithering over whether or not to buy this then please just do yourself a favour and go for it!
