"No Fawlts To Be Found"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

John Cleese' and Connie Booths immortal farce gets the treatment it deserves on this two disc set featuring commentary by Cleese on all 12 episodes, additional commentary by the producers, extensive retrospective interviews with the cast, a look at the hotel on which the series was based and even more supplemental material. A towering triumph of British comedy!

Description

Manic, condescending, sycophantic and rude, John Cleese as Basil Fawlty is one of the funniest British comedy creations ever shown on television.

Every episode of the BAFTA winning sitcom has been fantastically remastered, with a whole host of special features including, for the first time ever, audio commentaries from John Cleese on all 12 episodes.

Fawlty Towers was famously inspired by an unbelievably rude hotel proprietor John Cleese encountered whilst filming with Monty Python and remains Britain's best-loved television comedy.

Cast to perfection the series found Cleese playing irascible Torquay hotel owner Basil Fawlty, Prunella Scales as his domineering wife Sybil, Connie Booth as Polly, the dependable maid and Andrew Sachs in the role of Manuel, the non-comprehending, tyrannized waiter from Barcelona.

Each storyline remains a classic, with every guest another inconvenience in Basil's life – from the regulars, eccentric dodderer Major Gowen and charming elderly ladies Miss Gatsby and Miss Tibbs, to visitors such as Bernard Cribbins' fastidious spoon salesman and the deaf but imperious Miss Richards.

Whether it is builders, Germans, wedding guests, American tourists, corpses or even rats, there's always someone or something to drive Basil to desperation.

Fawlty Towers remains as popular today as it has ever been and now, fantastically remastered, this comic masterpiece is ready to be savoured again and again.
