Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Cole (Doc Martin), Benedict Cumberbatch, and Roger Allam (The Thick of It) star in the complete second series of the hit sitcom about the pilots of a tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult.

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-around naughtiness Douglas, and struggling, almost competent Martin. All-round help is provided by Carolyn's near-idiot son, Arthur.

Written by John Finnemore, writer for The News Quiz and That Mitchell & Webb Sound.

    "Very funny"

    Funny and smart. It's definitely worth your time. Excellent writing and spot on performances. English comedy at its very best.

    "Perfection."

    Funny, cleaver, well acted, and clean. Only 4 seasons sadly. I would listen to 10 season if they made them.

    "The. Best. Radio. Show. EVER."

    If you are having a bad day, listen to this. It's beyond BRILLIANT. Your ennui will be cured, life will have purpose again, stupid people will disappear, and it will make the gym suck less. Full of puns, word play, snappy dialog and impeccable comic timing from all performers. You'll wish the alphabet was longer.

    "Best new radio show out there"
    What did you love best about Cabin Pressure?

    All of the performances and writing are top notch. I havent found a funnier or better written show yet.


    What other book might you compare Cabin Pressure to and why?

    This show reminds me alot of the Hicthhikers Guide to the Galaxy

    Story
    "A Joy and a Half"
    Where does Cabin Pressure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not a book, it's a radio program with an audience. Funny dialogue.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The actors are wonderful


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

    Like many others, I downloaded it because of Benedict Cumberbatch and it also stars Roger Allam that I just watched in the "Endeavor" TV series as a detective. Everyone's performances are very good and with endearing characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes ! Cleaning the house !


    Any additional comments?

    May not be for everyone. It's very silly British humor.

    "Good fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 2 to be better than the print version?

    This is an enjoyable comedy, the writing is good, but the pleasure is also in timing and performance of the actors.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I do not have a favourite character. The chemistry between the characters is entertaining and how they compliment each other, it would not work without any of them.
