John Cleese stars as Basil Fawlty in the classic 1970s comedy set in a seaside hotel in Torquay.
- 6 EPISODES
John Cleese stars as Basil Fawlty, the manic and much put-upon hotel manager whose life is plagued by dead guests, hotel inspectors and riff-raff. His biggest headache though is his 'little nest of vipers' – nagging wife Sybil. Together, they run their hotel with a little help from the unflappable Polly, and hardly any help at all from Manuel, the trainee waiter from Barcelona. Still as outrageously funny as when it opened its hotel doors for the first time in the 1970s, everyone loves Fawlty Towers…except, that is, the poor guests!
