Publisher's Summary

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...

    "Be careful listening to this while driving"

    I was laughing so hard, I was crying! Brilliant! Each episode is funnier than the last. I'll be sad to get to the end of the series.

    "Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha . . . Ha Ha . . ."

    Funny, "Brilliant!", clever . . .

    If you are feeling stressed, or are bored, or need some laughs and entertainment . . . and "get" British humor (which isn't that different after all)

    this is one way to brighten your day . . .

    I got the series, from 1 to 4, but it looks like there might be some individual episodes available as extras. Found a Christmas special that sounds like it wasn't in the series . . . so fun continues for a little bit more.

    Great writing . . . excellent acting . . . funny . . . made me laugh out loud quite a few times

    "Sad that this is the Last Series"
    What did you love best about Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 4?

    Everything from start to finish


    What other book might you compare Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 4 to and why?

    Haven't found one yet


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cracked up many times


    Any additional comments?

    This was stumbled on by accident and I am glad I gave it a chance. I finished the entire series in 3 days, 1-4. It left me wanting more. Brilliant writing and performances made this a vivid comedy that I wish continued.

    "Brilliant!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 4?

    I pretty much adored Arthur's use of the intercom at the Kilkenny airport--by the time he concluded with "love, the airport" I was practically choking on laughter. However, the cliffhanger at the end of the Yverdon episode is probably the most painful/exciting/happy/sad moments in the entire run of the show.


    Have you listened to any of AudioGO Ltd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all four series of Cabin Pressure, and this may be might favorite so far. John Finnemore's performance as Arthur has caused me to develop a crazy love for the hapless steward. Benedict Cumberbatch is fantastic as Martin, the awkward and luckless Supreme Commander. Douglas, who is just as self-indulgent and clever as always actually seems to have learned to relate to others a little better this series--and Roger Allan delivers each line with just the perfect amount of condescension suavity .


    Any additional comments?

    Cabin Pressure has introduced me to the wonderful talent of John Finnemore, who is just a brilliant comedian. His other radio show, John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme, has a lot of the same flair for the ridiculous, so if you are looking for something similar to Cabin Pressure... (I couldn't get enough, so I pretty much HAD to go find something to help me get my fill)

    "Cliffhanger!"

    Ends in a cliffhanger. It is definitely great to have something to look forward to, but I did want some closer. Cabin Pressure is awesome, just like previous seasons, and I look forward to the next series.

    "Cute comedy"

    A series of quick short stand alone stories. Each story with the same main characters. Fast dialogue and witty. Clean language, I enjoyed it, l feel it is suitable for all ages that enjoy comedy.

    Very funny!! It really pulls you into the lives of these people and you care for them- even though they are a little crazy and I'm not sure I would want to fly on their plane!

    "Flying High"

    Cabin Pressure is one of those cultish delights that radio occasionally produces - a group of four key characters, with strongly identifiable personality types, reacting to situations and each other. It's fundamental sit-com, and it has such a sense of delight about it that lifts your spirits on any given day. Cole revels in the archetype "strong older woman" role with occasional hidden vulnerability, Allam is the smooth-talking twister who, to use a line from the show "sounds like he's Stephen Fry's older brother". Cumberbath is a revelation in a comedy role as the neurotic, not-very-good-but-uber-conscientious pilot, and Finnemore, as writer and loveable dimwit Arthur gives the show its infectious enthusiasm



    By Series 4, the characters are beginning to reference the show's own mythology - there's an unusual Burling Day (oh go on, go back and get the other seasons too, they're just as fab), Cole's Caroline has moments of real poignancy, Cumberbatch's Martin gets a girlfriend, and there's a surprising amount of what, three seasons ago would have semed impossible - Being Nice To Martin.



    Whether you've heard the previous seasons or not, Cabin Pressure Season four is a few hours of laughter that I've found myself finishing, and then starting again immediately, just because it makes me feel so happy. Go on - climb aboard.

    "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.
