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...

"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.
"BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!!!"
I BELIEVE THE AUDIO VERSION IS BETTER BECAUSE THE CHARACTERS ARE SO UNIQUE, YOU WOULD LOOSE A LOT OF THE WIT AND CHARM IF IT WAS JUST IN PRINT VERSION, THEIR VOICES ARE LIKE LIQUID GOLD! - YOU'D MISS THAT IN PRINT!
I LOVED ALL THE CABIN PRESSURE AUDIO BOOKS, THEY ARE JUST AMAZING, SO SERIES 1, 2, AND 3 ARE EQUALLY AS SUPERB, I HAVE JUST PURCHASED THE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR YET ANOTHER MASTERPIECE.
ARTHUR, AS HE IS JOHN FINNEMORE THE WRITER, WHAT A CLEVER TALENTED MAN, HE DID SUCH A MAGNIFICENT JOB WITH ALL SERIES I WISH THERE WAS MORE TO BUY. OH, STEPHANIE COLE, ROGER ALLUM AND OF COURSE BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH WERE ALL SO FABULOUS IT WAS DIFFICULT TO CHOOSE.
OH, IT SO MADE ME LAUGH. I WORK IN THE TOURIST BUSINESS AT A MAJOR AIRPORT AND IT IS SO TRUE IN MANY WAYS, AS THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN ARE REALLY SILLY, FE SABLE, VERY LIKELY I LAUGH EVERY TIME I LISTEN TO THEM.
AFTER A HARD DAYS WORK I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING BETTER THAN TO SNUGGLE INTO BED, CONNECT MY IPOD AND LISTEN TO CABIN PRESSURE, IT'S FUNNY, ENTERTAINING AND THE STARS ALL HAVE VOICES TO DIE FOR, THE PERFECT VOICES FOR AUDIO. WHAT A WAY TO DRIFT OF TO SLEEP, HAPPY!!MY IPOD HAS BEEN USED SO VERY VERY MUCH, I WOULD LOVE TO WIN A NEW ONE, AS NOW I DON'T NOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT IT!
Yes - in fact have listened several times. On long car journeys feels almost as if travelling with friends whose humour makes the miles fly by!
At various stages all of them but if pushed would go for Stephanie Cole's Carolyn - great one liners.
Excellent voices - perfect for characters - thanks BBC.
Laugh - and generally raised spirits on long journeys!
"Cabin Pressure-wanting more!!!!"
Very funny, downloaded before my holidays and listened to the complete series 1-4 another
4 times since... Very well made "This is why us Brits are still the best" when it comes to sarcasm and witty banter ...Douglas you're my Hero...
"Funniest radio comedy for years"
This latest addition to the Cabin Pressure series continues its reputation as one of the funniest radio comedies for many years. Great characters, from innocent, hopeless Arthur to the wickedly smooth Douglas, and inventive story lines. It's a great ensemble cast, which even features Benedict Cumberbatch as the put upon Captain of MJN air. A must listen, along with the previous series.
Another brilliant outing from the MJN crew. A "brilliant", sharp witted script penned by the fantastic John Finnemore and made all the more dazzling by excellent performances from a flawless cast. Contains real laugh out loud moments in each episode. Along with the humour is the fact that you really grow to care about the chaotic lives of each member if its crew. A must buy.
Arthur. He is played with real innocence and you cannot help but warm to him.
All of them.
"Funniest Radio Series ever...Great Cast, wonderful"
I would recommend this series to anyone who purports to have a sense of humour and see them laugh all the way through. Every member of the cast is brilliant and the writing is brilliantly observed.
The characterisation is so well acted, I believe in Martin and Douglas,
Listened to all 4 series many times and it never fails to make me laugh, even when I know what is about to happen
Only sorry that John Finnemore is not writing more, although he has just released his plans for the final episode 'Zurich' which will be broadcast in the new year...
The total lack of swearing and sex is an absolute
palet cleanser, a style essential if we are to progress rather than regress.
The entire cast is perfectly selected and perfectly balanced.
