I don't have much experience with radio shows like this recording -- but took a chance because of all the ravingly positive reviews on audible.

The timing of the dialogue, delivery, and sound effects really paint the picture so you can "see" the action in your mind's eye. Who would have thought? A totally entertaining and successful "try something different" from audible experience. Upbeat and fun.

Fabulous as per usual. "Qikiqtarjuaq"-- what Douglas puts Martin through is excruciating and hilarious "Paris"-- since I came to Cabin Pressur..Show More »e as a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch from Sherlock, this is my very favorite episode, in which Martin attempts to solve a mystery on board "Newcastle"-- Benedict Cumberbatch is replaced in this episode and the stand-in doesn't quite have his note of desperation. Wish I could hear the real Martin try to flirt with the female pilot they are ferrying "Ottery St. Mary"-- Delves into the age-old questions, (1) can one visualize 100 otters and (2) would they fit comfortably in Gertie? This episode is special because finally, finally, for once, Douglas does something nice for Martin "Rotterdam"-- Really makes the most of the radio format as Martin, Douglas, Herc and another man also named Martin compete to sound the smoothest and most confident for MJN's welcome recording. "St. Petersburg"-- a tense but great day, in different ways, for Martin, Douglas, Arthur and Carolyn and hence a treat for listeners. I was delighted to hear that a fourth series is planned, but if this had to be the show's finale, it is fitting.
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 letter..Show More »s 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.
