Fawlty Towers


Fawlty Towers
Fawlty Towers is one of the best-known, and most-loved, series from the halcyon days of British comedy. It starred John Cleese as irascible Torquay hotel owner Basil Fawlty, and Prunella Scales as his domineering wife Sybil—his “little nest of vipers”. Connie Booth played Polly the dependable maid and general assistant, and last but certainly not least, little Manuel superbly played by Andrew Sachs—the tyrannized waiter from Barcelona, dogsbody and subject of frequent physical attacks by the demented Basil! Terry the Chef, played by Brian Hall, was employed for the second series. The other regular guests were the slightly senile Major Gowen (retired), and the hard of hearing old dears Miss Tibbs & Miss Gatsby. Business seldom ran smoothly at Fawlty Towers - the insults to guests were guaranteed as were the laughs for the viewers.
