Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Cole, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Roger Allam star in the first series of the hit sitcom about the tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult. By John Finnemore (‘The News Quiz’, ‘That Mitchell & Webb Sound’) 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-round naughtiness Douglas, and struggling almost-competent pilot and sweaty man Martin. All-round help is provided by Carolyn’s near-idiot son, Arthur...In the first of the complete six episodes - ""Qikiqtarjuaq"" - when MJN Air flies a party of tourists near the North Pole, Arthur goes hunting for polar bears, Carolyn for a rogue lemon and Martin for a believable French accent...

Then we travel to episode 2 - ""Paris"", and when a bottle of highly-expensive whisky goes missing, Martin becomes the Miss Marple of MJN Air with Arthur assisting as his trusty Doctor Watson and Douglas hindering as his untrusty prime suspect. On to part 3, ""Newcastle"", where love is in the air, but also unfortunately in a small airport in Birmingham - and Martin has to choose between career, romance and fixing a very small tail-light. Part 4 finds us on the way to ""Ottery St Mary"". Martin is a Man With A Van, Douglas flies A Plane With An Otter and Carolyn dates A Pilot With A Problem With Sheep. And two mysteries solved - the name of Carolyn’s dog and the rules of “Yellow Car”.

Arriving at episode 5, ""Rotterdam"", it's Lifejacket, Camera, Action as stardom beckons for one of the crew of MJN Air... but who will get to blow the final whistle? And will they look good in a vest? And in the last episode of the series - ""St. Petersburg"" - some vodka and an unwary bird could spell the end of the line for MJN Air, and when Carolyn meets her ex-husband the atmosphere turns even icier.... With special series guests Timothy West, Anthony Head ('Buffy') and Mark Williams ('The Fast Show').

    Story
    "Utterly brilliant radio comedy."

    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.

    "Getting Formulaic"
    Would you listen to Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 3 again? Why?

    Yes, but not soon; not as crisp, but that's what happens.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Still a great ensemble who make it shine.


    Any additional comments?

    Arthur is too I Love Lucy stoopid and unbelievable seeing as it is John Finnemore who plays him. His role in Elvenquest is far more rounded, even as the Dog/Chosen One.

    Story
    "Love Love Love Cabin Pressure!"
    Where does Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I could only compare this series to other comedies - and this series is definitely the funniest (yet clean!) series I've listened to. John Finnemore's wit, writing and timing are fantastic! Benedict Cumberbatch and the other actors are amazing and work well together.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 3?

    The character of "Douglas" when they find the polar bears!


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    There is no one person who narrates. All of the actors are clear, funny and obviously enjoy what they are doing!


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

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    Try the other seasons of Cabin Pressure - 1 through 3 plus 1 Christmas series. Supposedly John Finnemore will be creating one more season in 2013?

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

    Oh Ya!!!! And I have!


    What other book might you compare Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 3 to and why?

    hmmm- Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy- it has that very British sarcastic humor about it


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

    Arthur, very well done character, counterpoints the other's, and great for a laugh...at him not with him.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

    "As Arthur would say, "Brilliant!"."

    My household continues to listen to this series over and over again. We simply can't get enough of it! The four lead characters are flawless in their performances, as are recurring cast members Anthony Head and Matilda Zeigler. Love it!

    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.

    Story
    "One could say I've found Gold!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 3 the most enjoyable?

    I was only fooling around one day and I've ran into samples of this show on Youtube and I was hooked! I would laugh aloud in my room listening to it and those were only samples. So I decided to buy the series and I must say it is brilliant work! I don't remember laughing that much listening to an audio only show. I am Brazilian but I study language and I found no difficulty understanding them - although there were terms I had to look in the internet to see what they meant, but it was totally accessible to me. All actors are amazing, they speak clearly which adds to the quality of the show. I fell in love with all the characters, none is a favorite to me, I like them all. Caroline with her sharp sense of humor, she always amuses me. Martin with his stuttering ways, Douglas with his smooth talk and of course, the always happy Arthur. Love it!

    "A hidden gem"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - this show is excellent. Well written and very funny. I could (and do) listen to it over and over.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The brilliant characters and wonderful acting.


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

    I listened to this audiobook in one go and then started it again. Each episodes is just as good as the last. You won't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    I caught an episode of Cabin Pressure on the radio while driving to a meeting and I loved it. I came home and downloaded as many episodes as possible and I wasn't disappointed.

    Cabin pressure doesn't get a high billing on Radio but it should do; it is very funny, wonderfully written by genius John Finnemore and excellently acted by the whole cast. There are no weak links.

    I would whole heartedly recommend this very funny show and all of those I have introduced to it, love it too.
