By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 28 Jun. 2013
Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It sounds like damning with faint praise to say that Cabin Pressure is probably the best sitcom on radio at the moment, but, while it may be formulaic, it really does deliver the laughs well into its fourth series and remains a joy to listen to. As usual, each episode is based on a disastrous charter for its low rent tottering-on-the-verge-of-bankruptcy single-plane airline with the combination of its polar opposite characters and unfortunate circumstances played off to perfection by an ideal cast. While Roger Allam is on his usual deliciously dryly condescending form, Stephanie Cole wears her best dismissively authoritarian yet still recognisably human demeanour (with series three's Anthony Head as her new regular romantic interest) and writer John Finnemore manages to make his too stupid to live flight attendant both a goldmine of optimistic inanity and still strangely credible in this environment, it's particularly pleasing that despite the success of Sherlock and working with the likes of Spielberg, Benedict Cumberbatch's underachieving captain is still with the show (although a cliffhanger ending to the final episode leaves his return in series five open to question).

After the slightly bumpy ride in season three there's a particularly good run of episodes this season that see the return of the odious but heavy-tipping Birling of Birling Day (given an inspired topsy-turvy spin this year), the introduction of Martin's overachieving brother, an unorthodox interview technique, a farcically disastrous stopover in Ireland and, best of all, the introduction of a possible regal romantic interest for Martin on a trip to Vaduz with the infantile king of Lichtenstein and his sister (a wonderfully funny Mathilda Ziegler). It may not break any new ground, but it's so much fun - while still retaining affection for it's oh so fallible ensemble - that it doesn't matter. Great stuff

Whether you are a fan of Cabin Pressure from the previous series, or have never heard it before, number 4 has it all there for your listening pleasure.

For those new to the series, meet the overbearing owner of MJN Air Carolyn, the very helpful and well meaning Arthur who is also her son, the First Officer Douglas who is always on hand to help in a tight spot and Martin the Captain who is always striving to meet everyone's approval and hoping for more luck to come his way in life.

Each of the six episodes lets you into a snapshot of life with MJN Air with much amusement and laugh out loud moments along the way, as the crew try to sort out the various pickles they find themselves in.

For those who are familiar with the crew of MJN there are a number of references referring back to previous series. Need I mention yellow car...Birling Day....sheep...

My favourite series so far are 2 and 3, but I have only listened series 4 twice and it has already grown on me more since the first time when my expectations were very high.

It took me a couple of listens to 'get' Cabin Pressure when I first heard it, but then I was hooked. It's a radio series about a small air charter firm, with one plane. One of the pilots (Martin, played by Benedict Cumberbatch) is keen but not very good; the other (Douglas, played by Roger Allam) is an old hand who knows every dodge in the book and has been reduced to flying for a two-bit charter firm after leaving a prestigious airline under a cloud. Keeping them in check is Caroline, the owner (played by Stephanie Cole), and John Finnemore, the writer, plays Arthur, her son and the steward, who is irrepressably enthusiastic about everything.

The interplay between the characters is superb; Cumberbatch acts as a straight man to Allam, who steals the show as the world-weary, cynical, all-knowing Douglas. The writing is first-rate (and the bits about flying seem to be accurate), and the comedy varies from wry in-jokes to laugh-out-loud gags with episode-long set-ups. Unlike most comedies, which tend to be running out of steam by the fourth series, the episodes on these three discs are as well-written and funny as ever, and they repay repeated listening.

If you already know and love Cabin Pressure, have no hesitation in ordering series 4; if you've never heard it, I'd recommend starting with series 1 and working your way through in order, but you'll be buying this one before long.

One of the best companions I can think of for a long car journey - recommended without hesitation. Can't wait for series 5 to find out what happens after the cliffhanger at the end of series 4...

I've been a fan of this series since I first heard series one.
An indication of just how good this series is, is that we now arrive at series 4 so John Finnemore the writer must be doing something quite marvelous to get a repeat commission from the BBC.
My goodness they have got their moneys worth in Spades.
Series one, two and three were good series four is excellent.
The great thing I admire about John Finnemore the writer and performer of the (idiotic) Arthur is that, just like Victoria Woods, he does not save all the best lines for himself.
One genius of the series is that the humour is shared out among the 4 main characters and often the guests too. This makes the series and ensemble rather than a main character supported by the others ala Tony Hancock for example.
I have said in previous reviews that `I still believe it would make a brilliant television series it is that and I mean THAT good.' And quite right have come in for some right ear bashing comments for saying so.
I'm of the mind that those people are right this is a beautiful polished gem of a RADIO series. TV would only dilute the humour.

Just like in previous series Benedict Cumberbatch, Roger Allam ('The Thick of It' Parades End, Endeavor), Stephanie Cole ( 'Doc Martin'), and the write John Finnemore really sparkle. A recurring character from series 3 is that of Anthony Head as Herc. He plays Cole's love interest of all things and this really brings out her character even more.
I have just realized that each and every episode has the name of an airport but they start with the next letter of the alphabet so these six episodes begin at and end at "Timbuktu" and go onto `Yverdon-les-Bains'.

Every episode is a gem and really funny.
