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...

    "Laugh out loud"

    The series as a whole is a gem of British laugh out loud humour. This season in particular is notable for ending with a cliff hanger with all letters of the alphabet used. The actors, all of whom are major stars in their own right, have a rapport and timing worthy of all the awards they and this series have garnered. MJN airline has it all...16 seats rarely all occupied ...unless you count the possibilities of Otters on board...a steward who is absolutely brilliant at playing Yellow Car, two pilots whose conversations are a hoot and an owner who does her best to keep it all under control (good luck with that). A highly addictive series. The world needs more of this.

    "Fizz, Buzz, Have a Banana!"

    I've immensely enjoyed hearing the adventures of MJN airlines through Audible. I began this series because of Benedict Cumberbatch and now I listen for all of the characters. I highly recommend this charming series for anyone with a funny bone and who likes English humor.

    "the best yet!"

    If you're considering buying this you're probably already a fan, right? I'll just say that this season contains two episodes (Vaduz and Wokingham) with plot lines that fans absolutely yearned for. Other highlights include another Birling Day, Douglas sincerely calling Martin a genius, Herc and Carolyn at the beach, some new twists on Yellow Car, everyone spends the night sleeping on Gertie... The whole season is basically a nonstop highlight reel, actually.

    "The worst thing about CP"

    is the existencial crisis that arrives when you've finished the show. The overall 'now what?' of the rest of your days is sort of baffeling. You probably wouldn't have expected that from a radio show. I sure didn't.

    I adored the characters and their development. Even forgot that it was a listening only medium, for my imagination filled in the visuals. As far as I've talked to people about it, it is the same for them. Stunning storytelling and acting.

    If you're down, and need a pick-me-up, Cabin Pressure could very well, be it for you.

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Great performance but far too silly for my taste"

    STORY (comedy) - Cabin Pressure is apparently a British radio show about a zany private airline crew. I didn't count, but there were maybe five short episodes in this audiobook. The characters are likeable and some of the situations are clever and made me chuckle, but for the most part I was only moderately entertained.

    PERFORMANCE - This series is done by a wonderful professional cast, all with British accents and distinguishable voices. It sounds much like watching a sitcom, complete with a live audience and lots of great sound effects. Five-star performance, for sure.

    OVERALL - This series is apparently popular and highly rated but not my cup of tea. If you like British humor, you probably should check it out. It's very "clean" with no sexual references, violence or bad language.

    "This radio series is brilliant"

    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.

    Absolutely excellent quality is maintained in this series. The additional characters are all brilliant too - especially love Herc. The only sad thing is that it ends.

    "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.

    "Love this series. Highly recommended."
    What made the experience of listening to Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 4 the most enjoyable?

    The writing is superb. As might be expected from the cast list, the acting and timing is excellent for all four main characters. I listened to the whole series for the first time several weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have just listened to the whole lot again, often while walking the dog. Very rarely for me I often found myself laughing out loud.....potentially embarrassing. It is a fantastic series and the characters really grow on you. I am sorry there are only 4 series. Stephanie Cole, Roger Allam, Benedict Cumberbatch and John Finnemore are a delight.


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

    I love all Andy Hamilton's writing. From Drop the Dead Donkey on TV to Old Harry's Game, Trevor's World of Sport and Revolting People. He is one of the few writers who can make me really laugh out loud. I now rate John Finnemore as highly. Cabin Pressure is an outstanding series.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    There are so many. The penultimate episode when the four have to spend the night in the plane, Gertie, and are playing Fizz, Buzz, is hilarious......'Have a banana'
    (You'll have to listen to understand that last bit). I particularly appreciated Roger Allam's (First Officer) sarcastic and original delivery.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not witty enough to do this justice sorry. (That is not the tag line, obviously Ha Ha)


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to a sample, see what you think..... then buy the first series. It gets better each time you listen.
