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.

    "Brilliant Fun!"

    Cabin Pressure is the best new UK comedy series I've found on Audible. Stephanie Cole and Roger Allam are both fantastic, and the other players are fine as well. The writing is crisp and fun, as well as intelligent and largely free of coarseness. Any listener with a sense of humor will enjoy this download. Don't forget to get series 1 as well. You will be charmed, I promise you!

    "MJN Air, I love you"

    The second series is as strong as the first. I love the second episode and the revelation about Martin. He is portrayed so fantastically by Benedict Cumberbatch. He could easily be a ridiculous and unsympathetic laughingstock but as voiced by Cumberbatch, his yearnings and frustrations are as real as his shortcomings and I just want to give him a hug! The Johannesburg and Kuala Lumpur episodes are both classics as well.

    "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.

    "Can't stop laughing"
    Where does Cabin Pressure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best radio plays I've ever listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cabin Pressure?

    Burling Day!


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

    I only planned to listen to each individual episode at a time, but ended up listening to the entire series.

    "Made me laugh so hard I couldn't walk!"
    What did you love best about Cabin Pressure?

    Oh, it's hard to pick just one thing - the clever, hysterically funny writing, the performances or the way it changes the way you look at everyday life?


    What did you like best about this story?

    There were many stories. And they were all funny and witty and clever. I love that!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Each narrator provided depth and nuances that broadened the characters and made them into people rather than just caricatures. The comic delivery had me staggering around the park laughing seemingly to myself on my daily walk as I listened.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Arthur says 'it's brilliant'"


    Any additional comments?

    I am so jealous of the UK for getting new episodes first.

    ""GENIUS COMEDY!""
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I already have! I have recommended this to a bunch of friends most of them love it, a few aren't crazy about it but still acknowledge it's funniness.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    um Martin. His preeminence to failure despite his efforts creates great conflict.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Arthur- such a well done character


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

    when it made me laugh....which was all the time


    Any additional comments?

    You Won't Regret Getting This!

    "Just as BRILLIANT as series 1"

    Nothing was lost in terms of quality in series 2. This is an hilarious show with truly excellent characters and simple, but funny plot lines that are character driven. I highly recommend. You will laugh.

    "Be prepared to drop a little coin"

    I bought the fourth series on a deal of the day special, and got hooked five minutes into it. An all together awesome series.

    "Warning: so funny you will laugh out loud at work"

    I laugh, chortle, and snort every time I listen. It never gets old. I can't wait for my next credit - I'm buying them all RIGHT NOW!

    BRAVO BBC ! Another smash hit.

    "Even Better....."

    This shows that series 1 was not a fluke. This is even better. The games the crew play to stave off boredom during flights are truly inventive and are really funny signs of how tedious life can be. If you haven't heard this or series 1 yet what are you doing? Buy this now, download it immediately and listen to it over and over again to catch all the comedic nuances. Like I said of series 1, you will not be disappointed.

    "Fabulous"

    Cabin Pressure is fabulous. John Finnemore should be locked in a room and made to write Series 3, 4 and 5.
    Deep Trouble is another one of his outstanding comedies.
    They lighten my dark days.

    "First Class Comedy"

    Cabin Pressure is a real gem - very clever, beautifully written, wonderful characterizations, superbly voiced by a top class cast and most of all very, very funny. I have lost track of how many times I've listened to these two series, but it has never become jaded - love it every time.

    I loved this and will get the rest of the available series. Was a little perturbed at first because I detest flying, but this is a wonderful look at a rather run down air charter company, and the characters so very funny.
