Fawlty Towers is one of the nation's favourite sitcoms, consistently topping polls to find the best comedy show ever. Though only twelve episodes were ever made, each one is a comic masterpiece. In these six episodes, incompetent hotelier Basil Fawlty strives for success but is continually foiled at every turn. In 'A Touch of Class', he tries to attract a better class of hotel guest; while in 'The Builders', he hires O'Reilly's men to carry out some maintenance - but is the cheapest option really the best? In 'The Wedding Party', he suspects hanky panky when an unmarried couple request a double room; and in 'The Hotel Inspectors', Basil is horrified when he realises he needs to be polite to the guests in case one of them is an undercover inspector. 'Gourmet Night' sees him organising an evening of fine dining - but will new chef Kurt be able to cope? And in 'The Germans', Basil struggles not to cause offence to a party of German guests. As long as he doesn't mention the war... John Cleese stars as Basil Fawlty, with Prunella Scales as Sybil, Connie Booth as Polly and Andrew Sachs as Manuel.
