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.

    "Slightly more ridiculous than my real life"

    Hilarious program; after I discovered Cabin Pressure I had to binge on the entire series it did a great job with facts related to a corporate pilot's lifestyle and issues, which especially amused me. Someone really did their fact-checking. He cast is wonderful and captures each character flawlessly. The only complaint I have is that there aren't any more episodes to download.

    "'Everyone in the car, we're going for a drive...'"

    By the 4th series, Finnemore has his characters and plots beautifully formed, we know how each will react to any given scenario yet they remain hilarious without becoming grotesques, lovable without losing any of their beastly qualities. The plots are complex yet all easily followed and there is always the sting in the tail that winds up the story nicely. If these plots are based on real life events, then the world of Charter Flights is a very strange and disturbing place to be. The characters have all moved on from the previous series, we now have an idea why Captain Creef has turned out how he has, and just how powerful an impact sitting in the Skips seat can have on your ego. I have often wondered how these increasingly famous actors find the time to make these programmes, secretly I think they clear their diaries to accommodate it.If you listen to this in your car, you'll be going on journeys simply to hear how it all ends up.

    "Better than ever"

    Many a family car journey has been made enjoyable by listening to Cabin Pressure. I knew I was on to a winner when my 18 year old son (who usually only surfaces at the end of a journey by turning off his own ipod's music) actually asked if there was a new series to listen to yet. I downloaded series 4 hoping that it would still be as funny and witty as previous episodes had been. It did not disappoint. Brilliantly clever writing, excellent delivery of lines and worth every penny.

    "Hilarious and better with repeat listening"

    This series has gone from strength to strength. Each character is pitch perfect and the group work together so well that there is nothing to jar. Arthur should be irritating but is naive and likeable, Douglas and Carolyn duel over the Talisker, Martin gets to be a Knight in shining armour (of sorts), Hercules the Berkules is at his oh so charming best and a snowman ruins then saves the day. Gloriously dotty with what feels like genuine affection between the characters. At the start of each new series I think they wont be able to match the last but have been wrong so far, long may it continue!

    "A real gem"

    If you haven't yet discovered the hilarious world of Cabin Pressure then what have you been waiting for? For any radio sitcom with only 4 main characters who spend the majority of their time confined to a small charter jet, you may imagine that the plots would become rather thin. Instead, as your love of the characters grows, the plots become richer and warmer. Cabin Pressure is like a long, luxurious bubble bath with each bubble a new laugh.

    "Best One Yet!"

    Just when I thought Cabin Pressure couldn't get any better, it did! I cried tears of laughter, ran out of breath several times and gasped at the end of the last episode. Honestly, this show is the reason why I have the 'repeat listener' badge in my app, because Cabin Pressure is the one audiobook I actually enjoy again, and again... and, yes, you've probably guessed it - again ;)



    Thank you for flying MJN air :)

    "Fun!"

    Witty and funny script brilliantly voice acted. Good repeat value.

    Caustic but not cruel, silly in bits - it is a 30 minute radio comedy - but the silly can be quite surreal rather than most of the current "comedy" purile pap.

    "still fresh comedy"

    I got hooked on this comedy after hearing it on the radio. Each character is very well observed and plays an important part in each episode. While the scene for each episode is improbable, the humour and jokes make each episode funny and original. Definately a series that you can listen to over and over again.

    "Brilliant!"

    I simply can not get enough of Cabin Pressure. Even on the darkest of days each episode turns a frown upside down. I have been known to laugh out loud in coffee shops, on trains or in waiting rooms so be warned, it may cause uncontrollable outbreaks of laughter.



    Each story is brilliant on its own, but by the end of this series I had fallen in love with all of the characters. Their development and growth has been heart warming, and there is even a delightful cliffhanger ending!



    Give it a go. You wont be disappointed!

    "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.
