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.
Brilliantly witty and fantastically written. Stephanie Cole demonstrates her truely caustic wit yet again and Benedict Cumberbatch puts in a great performance as the slightly naive captain. The true star though has to be Douglas the first officer - he's such a rascal!
This is a fantastic comedy series first broadcast on B.B.C radio 4.
From Douglas' deadpan manner to Arthurs laughable naivety it is probably
the best comedy series ever! Good clean humour that always manages to cheer me up.
John Finnemore and Roger Allam have to be the stars but S.Cole and B.Cumberbatch give
great performances, it's just the parts that make the other two the best.
Worth even more than the price!

Really, really wonderful. A complete joy to listen to, beautifully written, with lines I keep trying to crowbar into conversation (bit hard that, some are quite specific, but I'm used to the odd looks now). Genuinely can't wait for series three!
