Series 4, Episode 2 - Uskerty
Carolyn and Martin get into an argument, and Douglas and Arthur get to play with an airport.
John Finnemore talks more about this episode on his blog. He says "Getting the Douglas and Arthur story right was blue murder." There is also a photo of his notebook, and a transcript of the deleted final scene which wasn't heard on the radio.

Cast & crew
The best sitcom on radio? John Finnemore's series about the four staff on a one-plane, tinpot charter airline - and it's just as silly and as tightly constructed as ever in its fourth run. Roger Allam stars as suave, incredibly untrustworthy first officer Douglas, with classy support from Stephanie Cole, Benedict Cumberbatch and Finnemore himself.

Thank you for all the messages I've had about Uskerty - I'm really glad people seem to like it so much.
