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.

    "The radio drama that changed my mind for good"

    Cabin Pressure is really what made me fall in love with radio dramas. I've never been one for audio recordings of stories, but this has fully converted me. Give it a go. I swear you won't regret it. Just beware listening to it in public; you may receive strange glances from strangers when you can't hold back your laughter.

    "Always fun."

    Well-written, clever situation comedy about life in a charter airline. When it delves into the power differences between the characters, it gets funnier. Enjoyable and well-crafted.

    What a great radio play series! They tie back to earlier episodes, the jokes are laugh out loud funny and it's generally very entertaining! Great character development too; makes road trips fly by!

    "Perfection."

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

    "Good fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 2 to be better than the print version?

    This is an enjoyable comedy, the writing is good, but the pleasure is also in timing and performance of the actors.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I do not have a favourite character. The chemistry between the characters is entertaining and how they compliment each other, it would not work without any of them.

    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.
