John Finnemore’s consistently first-class sitcom, about a private airline that struggles with its morality as much as its finances, returns for a new run.
The crew are about to go home when boss Carolyn Knapp-Shappey (Stephanie Cole) offers them a chance to earn £2,000 each, so long as they don’t mind forgoing their dignity for cash. All they have to do is convince a wealthy passenger with a fondness for whisky that they have landed in Timbuktu rather than Sardinia.
Once this premise has been established, the jokes come faster than the racing camels that are noticeably absent in “Timbuktu”.
John Finnemore's comedy about the pilots of a tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many are too difficult. The staff prepare for Birling Day once more, and traditionally swap their dignity for cash. Starring Stephanie Cole, Roger Allam and Benedict Cumberbatch. From 2013.
