John Finnemore (Dead Ringers & Mitchell & Webb) has written this brilliant new sitcom starring Stephanie Cole, Roger Allam & Benedict Cumberbatch. Cabin Pressure is set in a small airline business. The flipside of the glamorous world of international airlines.
For those in the airline industry you will recognise the fine line between comedy and documentary! You'd think that one of the writers was an airline pilot: it's that good!
Utterly brilliant. (Sir!)
Rarely have voice talents so perfectly gelled into a synergy that makes Cabin Pressure not only uproariously funny but instantly listenable. The last time I can recall a Radio 4 comedy being this accessible and utterly brilliant was when Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Mark Wing-Davey and Steven Moore came together in HHG2TG, by the late Douglas Adams. In John Finnemore's meticulously researched dialog (both between the protagonists and the subtle noises off) I detect another great talent has come among us. It's just a shame that the audiobook version looses some of the subtle inference the radio (stereo) version has. Not sufficient to deduct a star though, this is a must listen - even if you hate flying.
Definately my favourite radio comedy! The characters are well thought out and gain depth as you listen to the two series. Each episode is individual and original. Well worth a listen
