John Finnemore revives Cabin Pressure with Cabin Fever

Cabin Pressure is one of the finest sitcoms ever to grace the radio airwaves. It ended a few years ago now (gah, 2014!), mainly due to Benedict Cumberbatch’s sudden fame thanks to Sherlock but also because each episode started with a different letter of the alphabet and they ran out of letters.

It is much missed.

But there seems to be a lot of Cabin Pressure about, all of a sudden. Inept air steward Arthur Shappey’s grandson is currently piloting spaceships on Avenue 5 (US: ABC; UK: Sky1).

And Arthur himself is currently trying to help us all survive quarantine with Cabin Fever, the first episode of which is naturally set in Fitton.
