I've just listened to the repeat of Yverdon-Les-Bains on Radio 4 Extra, for the second time.
I have been listening to BBC radio comedies since the early 1960s and I feel that Cabin Pressure is one of the best, if not indeed the best. For me it ticks all the boxes, it is well written, intelligent, extremely funny, has great characters and actors, pathos, etc, etc.
Well done and long may it continue to fly.
Very many thanks
What an amazingly BRILLIANT show! I usually have to reapply my mascara after listening as the tears of laughter make it smudge!
Well done to all of you involved- its the best radio show EVER!!!!!
Why hello there! Nice of you to join me on this flight to Longyearbyen this flight will be action packed and full of surprises I'm sure! Thank you for listening; I'm wing-commander Arthur Shappy getting ready to fly you to moon
congratulations to the writers and actors, this program just gets better and better, with Yvredon les bas being the funniest yet. i rank Cabin Pressure alongside the Goons for sheer brilliance and comedy. well done all
I feel justified in saying "Top Banana".
That is all!
It's been 1hour and 45 minutes since the last episode of Season 4 aired and I still can't get over the ending. Wednesday evenings have lost their sparkle of finely tuned laughter and characters that I care far more about than any soap. That John Finnemore has the most impressive grasp on the craft of writing and the craft of silliness.
I hope for a Z special episode where all those I love in this series get what they deserve and this most Brilliant of radio sitcoms is completed in the true Finnemore tradition - with a word game that leaves you gasping for air.
You are, sir, a genius.
I absolutely adore this programme, and although I have heard most of them, I've recently bought the CDs of the first 3 series so I can enjoy them time & time again. I would like to thank & congratulate Johm Finnimore for writing this inventive and clever programme Martin comes across as so pathetic & venerable it brings tears to my eyes.The whole cast is magnificant and seem be enjoying themslves. I hope they are and that John Finnimore has plenty of ideas for lots of future series.
Now is it just me? Or does anyone else think the "laughter" put on these days is intrusive and very badly used. These Cabin Pressure scripts are on the verge of being spoilt.
I was introduced to Cabin Pressure last year and I completely fell in love with the show from the first episode. Now it's one of my absolute favourites and I can't wait to listen to the new series.
My best friend bought me the complete series as a pressie recently. Amazingly I had never heard it on the radio. I absolutely LOVE it!! It makes me laugh out loud, which very few things do. I have introduced my 12 year old daughter to it too and she is now as much of an addict as me. She already knows most of the words to Ottery St Mary, which is without doubt our favourite episode, and we play Yellow Car whenever in the car together. Sadly I play it by myself when alone - but then, of corse, you're always playing Yellow Car. How true Arthur! Can't wair for series 4 tomorrow! Thank you John Finnemore.
Martin, Captain, Skipper, Madam - pleeeeze can we fit three in the flight deck now?! Remember the cat in the hold .....
Just bought all 3 series plus Christmas Special from Audiogo for about 8 quid. Best-Chistmas-Present-EVER!
It's amazing what you find when you're searching YouTube for "Hawking" after being wowed by "Sherlock". I listened to Cabin Pressure straight through, and was sad when it was over. Am now spreading the gospel to family members. Latest CD set is being enjoyed by my son, a Marine serving in Afghanistan, where laughs are valuable commodities. Brought up on Python, Fawlty, and Blackadder, I knew he would love Gertie's gang. He's a pilot too (giant helicopter). And I discovered an old friend right here in town who knows what it means that "The lemon is in play." It's a whole new family. Wonderful.
I just found out about this show the other day and love it so far! The characters/actors are all great. They're so vivd that I actually feel like I'm watching it instead of just listening to it. I think I identify with Douglas the most, but I love them all. Although, I really hope these sort of things don't happen (at least not often) in the airlines.
I love Cabin Pressure! My favorite episodes are Ottery St Mary and Boston :) I made myself a T-Shirt that says, "I fly MJN" and it has a cute little plane on it. I can't wait until Season 4! Faithfully yours, Mandolin
Recently heard cabin pressure on radio 4 extra, and became immediately hooked. My sister now plays "yellow car" all the time. Cant wait for series 4 to come out on audio cd. Have all 3 series and listen to them all the time giggling ! Thank you cabin pressure. A true fan.
Well I use Audiobook downloads and I've just realised that it only gave me series 1 and 3. I've still got series 2 to download and listen to. Brilliant!
Fantastic show. JF is a genius.
Am I the only person to spot 'Mr Leeman' and 'Doctor Price' in the Boston episode as being a nod to Fawlty Towers? Where a guest (Mr Leeman) dies and is attended to by a 'Doctor Price'.
Do I get a prize now?
YELLOW CAR YELLOW CAR
Off to get series 2 and can't wait for series 4.
just LOVE IT!!!!!!1 its amazing and hilarious.
I'm just really REALLY happy I got into Cabin Pressure. The script is brilliant, the delivery is brilliant, POLAR BEARS. ARE. BRILLIANT. I need my passport renewed because SERIES 4 IS ON ITS WAY.
Looking forward to laughing to myself in class again.
I love Cabin Pressure and I love this site. BRILLIANT. Polar Bear!!
I have the feeling that my teachers are becoming exasperated at my sudden outbursts of laughter in lessons when I listen to Cabin Pressure. Such a good programme. John Finnemore (and his adorable voice) is 'brilliant!'
I love this show as much as I'd love to try Arthur's 'Surprising Rice'!! The funniest show on radio and better than anything on tv.
Cabin Pressure never fails to put a big smile on my face. I can't remember the last time a comedy series made me feel this ridiculously happy. The writing, the characters, the acting... in the words of Arthur Shappey: "BRILLIANT!"
I can't wait for series 4!
My parents, Mr and Mrs Smith, were spellbound when they heard Cabin Pressure for the first time. I live North by North West of them with my friend Rebecca. I confess we went into a frenzy of laughter until we saw the birds of normality through the rear window and fled down our torn curtain of rope, trying to overcome the vertigo that was slowing our escape from the notorious psycho known as "the saboteur" until we realised we had the wrong man and that he was no more a threat to us than strangers on a train. But then our suspicion rose, and we knew about the family plot, so we escaped by the lifeboat. I had but a shadow of a doubt that my foreign correspondent had just given me a little stage fright.... (oh by the way i think there are 22 in there) :)
Only just discovered Cabin Pressure - how did I miss it? Completely wonderful. Its been years since I listened to the Navy Lark, Round the Horn and the Goons and this is very much in the same vein. Love all the cast - Roger Allam has always been a favourite - his delivery is just amazing. Benedict Cumberbatch as a Frenchman is one of the highlights for me. Hilarious. It takes a lot to make me laugh out loud - and this does just that. Brilliant writing, fabulous performances. Will there be more? I really hope so.
I was wondering if they play Yellow Car in Toy Town (Noddy's car being yellow with red wings)
Brilliant creation, so funny! Thank you so much.
This is the most amazing website! I loved Cabin Pressure since it's first airing! Interesting to see where Benedict Cumberbatch is now! O.S
CABIN PRESSURE IS.. BRILLIANT!!!
I listens to it every night, when I'm ill, if I'm sad, or
If I just want to hear something fun!!
And thanks to this series.. I always think its captain Martin Crieff and first officer Douglas Richardson who sits in the flight deck when I'm in a aeroplane.
And I've started looking for a lemon..
So thankyou, John!! Thankyou Stephanie, Roger and Benedict! You actually make my day :')
Yes, Arthur..polar bears are BRILLIANT! They pass me every day;)
Cabin Pressure is by far my most FAVOURITE tracks to listen to on a long journey. I cannot tell you how many weird looks I have been given on public transportation, when I BURST OUT LAUGHING and wipe away tears. No matter how many times I listen to it, it will NEVER GROW OLD. I will still be listening to it when I soon turn 20, and will continue until I am 80.
The show is absolute GENIUS, and I am ANXIOUS TO GRAB TICKETS for the fourth series, eps 1. I hear it will revert around Sherlock and John taking a trip, with Benedict playing both Sherlock and Martin. I cannot even begin to describe HOW PERFECT THAT EPISODE WLL BE. I would imply how this could one day revert to a film, but I think we can all agree that it's a masterpiece that was created to enjoy during that boring job, the long hours of spring cleaning, and those last moments before you go to sleep.
An age old fan of all (most) radio comedies, I'm always on the look out for the next new and enthrawling thing. So it was a big supprise after I thought to myself..."I wonder what this Cabin Pressure is all about? Lets give it a try then!"....and lo-and-behold it's a bloody masterpeice! The stories, characters, writing and situation are a wonder to the ear and mindscape. That John Fiddemore doesn't sound like a genius (what does a genius sound like?) but he must be one. I just love this show!
Thank you for all the giggles and delightful moments. I am making everyone I know listen to this show! It's Brilliant!
What a lovely fanpage. Cabin Pressure means so much to all of us, and it's gorgeous to see how our fandom grows and how many creative and clever heads we can count among us! Thank you so much for making such a lovely page <3
what can you say about this show, not enough of them is the one thing, in a word 'Brilliant'
Lost count of how many times I've listened to all of these, great program and nice site, has made me smile
I absolutely love Cabin Pressure even though its not new or anything, Just thought I'd share!
Having listened to the whole series many times I'm amazed how well crafted the episodes are - not only the plotlines but also the way the characters gradually reveal themselves during the series.
I can't help but think that the cast were really enjoying themselves playing these delightful characters. And didn't Tom Goodman Hill acquits himself well as Martin in “Newcastle"?
As I spend most of my day completing accounts and tax returns CP is a welcome companion on my iTunes to brighten my day.
This show is soo much fun! I really enjoy it plus it helps me improve on my listening and focus skills as I have ADHD. And can I just say that I want to pinch John Finnemore's voice. If that's even possible. It's soo cute!!!
Thanks for the website - just found you after listening to St Petersburg yet again on Radio 4 Extra and was wondering how I'd cope if there were never a Series 4.
So you've made my day by letting me know that yes there will be.
In the meantime I'll just have to keep listening out for Arthur's alter ego when he makes his occasional visits to The Now Show
Like everybody else I think Cabin Pressure is the funniest thing I've heard in years, and there's a lot of competition for that top spot on Radio 4. Love the writing, love the characters, love the acting, all perfect.
And like almost everybody else (though unlike a couple of other guests here) I'd say to the BBC please please please never make a telly version. The best Hitch-hiker's Guide by far wasn't the book, wasn't the telly series, wasn't the film, but was and ever shall be the radio version. Cabin Pressure on the radio is more real and surreal than anything on television could ever be.
I'm so glad that I got into Cabin Pressure! It made my love for traveling increase and the airplane rides to each destination more fun!
Looking forward to the fourth series!
I can't count how many times I have listened to all
the episodes, and they still make me laugh. Sign of true genius in writing.
I have to go now, someone has been tampering with my arm rest.
I have all the episodes of Cabin Pressure, including the Christmas Special. I have listened to them time and time again and never get tired of them, they still make laugh out loud. I hope they will make another series, or at least a Christmas special. It would be a shame to finnish soimething that has such a huge following!
My go ..... Ferry
Came across Cabin Pressure on iplayer recently and was immediately hooked.
What a brilliant show - well written, funny, and great acting from the whole cast make this a comedy gem.
I've made up for missing it over the past few years by downloading all three series from Audible, but now I'm forced to ration the episodes otherwise I'll just listen to them all in one go!
Looking forward to the 4th series.
Would love more of the Herc character as some sideline stories add interest to the already brilliant comedy, still waiting for the BBC to get organised and televise this.
I just found Cabin Pressure on Monday and it is easily one of the most fantastic things I have ever encountered in my life. The Limerick episode had me crying with laughter because of how brilliant it is. Hoooooooooooray!
Just listened to Ottery St. Mary for the first time today. My brother yelled at me to stop laughing so much, because he was trying to watch TV. I love this show, and am forever playing Yellow Car in the car, and laughing whenever someone mentions otters. Thank you so much John Finnemore for creating this show.
I love this show ,I have downloaded some of the episodes and listen to them over and over again,i hope there is a series 4 on the way :)
Just wanted to add some weight to the movement to keep the show running as long as possible.Just love it-the script, the cast, the 'off the wallness'.
I listen on 4 Extra in Dubai and it really shows up the TV programmes.If I have a favourite it must be Roger Allam's role, superbly played by a great actor.
Please keep it going-it stands head and shoulders above all the dross-a little gem
I hope there will be another series! Is there going to be one? Anyone know???
CPF: Ummm.... http://www.cabinpressurefans.co.uk/news/happy-new-year-cabin-pressure-series-4/
This show is brilliant! I'm so glad I've found it! :)
Just finished listening to 'St Petersburg'. Back to 'Abu Dhabi' so. Hurry up with Series 4 please!
