Stephanie Cole, Benedict Cumberbatch & Roger Allam star in the fourth 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, Mitchell & Webb).
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...

I love this series. The interactions between the characters are excellent and the personalities mesh perfectly. I was laughing out loud at many of the scenes, particularly when they played the "fizz buzz" game. There is also a cliffhanger at the end of this season so I need to get season five!!
Oh what a great audio, 30 minute segments funny as can be. Quick easy listen when short on time. Just be careful, people will look at you funny when you laugh out loud.
It took a bit to get into the story, but then I enjoyed it very much. At first it was just snappy dialogue, but then deeper aspects of the characters begin to emerge.
"LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY"
I have all 4 series and I think this is my favourite one. It has adventure! It has intrigue! It has romance! It has a cliff hanger! It has Arthur doing a jigsaw! It's superbly written, excellently acted and every time I listen to it, I laugh at something else. A perfect comedy to lighten your day.
"The best radio sitcom in all of history!!"
Another amazing season of the best radio sitcom ever, full of ingenious plot lines, brilliant characters and hilarious jokes. Witty, wonderful and side-splittingly funny, the fourth season of Cabin Pressure can only be described as.....BRILLIANT!!
"Brilliant - as usual"
A word of caution - don't do what I did and listen to this on your mp3 whilst walking the dog. I must have looked mental walking through the fields by myself, laughing out loud. I have got quite a few comedy books/series on my mp3 but this is the only one that I listen to over and over again. After Series 3 I thought that a) it couldn't get any better and b) John Finnemore would never be able to get the cast together again (given Benedict Cumberpatch's Hollywood success and Roger Allam's ever increasing profile). Delighted to say, I am wrong on both counts. There seemed to be a bit more back story in this but I think that just made it stronger. I won't say anything more as I don't want to spoil it for anybody but if you liked the first three series then you definitely won't regret buying this.
"Destined to be a classic"
The series just gets funnier with each playing as the characters become more familiar. British comedy at it's best.
In terms of making me laugh out loud - nearly the top. Only beaten by other CP series.
Not nearly as good as it was on the radio.
Great performance great story great book.And a good story listen in the car.And anywhere. Love it my self
Top notch comedy
Maybe Clare in the Community?
All of them
The lemon is in play!
Consistently funny and good to listen to multiple times.
The best comedy ever written. So funny and precise down to the last technical detail. You must get this book
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.
I Love all of the Cabin Pressure Audiobooks, so much so that I listen to them regularly and still laugh -yellow car- at the jokes. All of the actors are believable and the plot for each episode is well written. Well done John Finnemore and team! 😃
