One of those SQUEEE!!! moments
The complete Cabin Pressure ... all 26 episodes ... is being released on CD on April 1st!!! And THAT is utterly appropriate and very much in the spirit of the series (considering the kinds of pranks the characters play on each other on occasion). No official cover image yet but here is the cast photo most frequently used by the BBC for promoting the show. Left to right: John Finnemore (who also wrote all the scripts), Roger Allam, Stephanie Cole, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

A marvelous series ... nary a lame episode in the lot and lots of bored-pilots-in-the-cockpit games to play! And there's no other place in time, space, fact, or fiction where the line "No, I'm sorry, Carolyn. I carried the sheep for you. I climbed the tree. I rode in the back of the truck. But now, I need to X-ray these geese." makes perfect sense.

Edited to add: Creator/scriptwriter/cast member John Finnemore's own words on the subject (And now I have to add his blog to my online reading list because the most recent entries on G.K. Chesterton and Winston Churchill were wonderful)

Cabin Pressure rules! It's not the perfect going-to-sleep radio show, though, cause it keeps me awake laughing. John Finnemore is amazing! And I still think it's the definitive Cucumberpatch role. *heads over to check out the Finnemore blog too*

Definitely rules! And Finnemore is a comedic genius ... love his "John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme" as well. :-)
