CABIN PRESSURE: Cumberbatch Reprises Captain Crieff!

Benedict Cumberbatch Not To Big For Radio 4 Sitcom

Sherlock star reprises his role as clueless captain in Cabin Pressure

Cumberbatch will be returning to Radio 4 to star in the sitcom Cabin Pressure.

The sitcom is in its fourth series and stars Corrie’s Stephanie Cole and The Thick Of It’s Roger Allam.

Based on a tiny airline, the comedy has seen that team flying squaddies to Hamburg, metal sheets to Mozambique, and an oil exec’s cat to Abu Dhabi, all involving pitfalls and huge mistakes that have threatened the existence of the minuscule airline.

Cumberbatch plays hapless Captain Martin Crieff which, according to the Cabin Pressure webpage “has wanted to be an airline pilot since he was six, and before that he wanted to be an aeroplane.”

The critically-acclaimed show will be recorded in London next month.

Any Cabin Pressure fans here? Frankly, as far as Benedict is concerned, I think Cabin Pressure is my favourite series he's worked on. John Finnemore is basically a genius.

I think I'm one of the only people who didn't get into CP because of Benedict. xD well, I guess I did, indirectly: Sherlock blogs on Tumblr kept posting about it and one day I decided to listen to it on a whim

Same for me--went in because of BC, fell in love with JF and Arthur. He just tries so damn hard, the poor soul.
