Publisher's Summary

If you loved the first three seasons, you'll be just as tickled by this fourth installment of the wonderfully funny Cabin Pressure. Whether you're a fan of the cheeky Douglas or the hopelessly sweet Martin, there's a generous helping of all the bits you've grown to love.

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.

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.

Cute comedy

A series of quick short stand alone stories. Each story with the same main characters. Fast dialogue and witty. Clean language, I enjoyed it, l feel it is suitable for all ages that enjoy comedy.

Wish this show would just carry on flying!

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.
