Only Fools and Horses — Father Ted — Blackadder — Black Books — The Office — Comedy Drama. Peep Show — I'm Alan Partridge — The IT Crowd — Edit Storyline Inept and manic English hotel owner and manager, Basil Fawlty, isn't cut out for his job.
Genres: Comedy. Edit Did You Know? Subsequently, it has inspired the makers of other shows to do likewise. Rik Mayall , Ben Elton and Lise Mayer , the writers behind The Young Ones , which also ran for only two series each with six episodes , used this explanation as well.
Victoria Wood also indicated this influenced her decision to limit Dinnerladies to 16 episodes over two series.
The origins, background and eventual cancellation of the series would later be humorously referenced in 's The Secret Policeman's Third Ball in a sketch in which Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry present Cleese — whom they comically misname "Jim Cleese" — with a Dick Emery Lifetime Achievement Award "Silver Dick" for his contributions to comedy, then launch into a comical series of questions regarding the show, including Cleese's marriage and divorce from Booth, innocently ridiculing Cleese and reducing him to tears, to a point at which he gets on his knees and crawls off the stage while crying.
As Basil tries to raise the tone of the hotel, the aristocratic Lord Melbury comes to stay at the hotel.
Basil fawns over him at every opportunity, causing himself to neglect or annoy other guests, until Polly discovers Melbury is actually a confidence trickster.
Meanwhile, Sybil orders Basil to hang a picture. Maintenance is made on the lobby while the Fawltys are out, but when a misreading causes the incompetent builders to mess it up spectacularly, Basil must try to remedy the situation before Sybil finds out.
Basil gets annoyed when a young, flirtatious couple start "hanky-pankying" under his nose and tries to avoid the advances of a wealthy French antique dealer.
Meanwhile, misfortune conspires to put him in compromising situations whenever the couple are around. When Basil hears of hotel inspectors roaming Torquay incognito, he realises with horror that guests he has been abusing could easily be among them.
Basil becomes increasingly obsessed with trying to determine which guests are hotel inspectors, but his suspects turn out not to be, to his frustration.
In an effort to climb another rung in the social ladder, Basil arranges a gourmet night. This, combined with the Fawlty's faulty car and his social awkwardness leads Basil ever closer to a nervous breakdown.
With Sybil in the hospital with an ingrowing toenail, a moose's head to hang up and some German guests arriving the next day, Basil has his work cut out for him.
After an attempted fire drill goes wrong and Basil lands up in the hospital with concussion, he succeeds causing much offence to the German guests after finally escaping back to the hotel.
This episode is the origin of the quote "Don't mention the war. The second series was transmitted three-and-a-half years later, with the first episode being broadcast on 19 February Due to an industrial dispute at the BBC , which resulted in a strike, the final episode was not completed until well after the others, being finally shown as a one-off instalment on 25 October The cancelled episode on 19 March was replaced with a repeat of "Gourmet Night" from series 1.
The arrival of the "guest from hell" — Mrs. Richards, a rather deaf, dotty and bad-tempered woman — interferes with Basil's attempts to prevent the money he won on a racehorse from being discovered by Sybil, who disapproves of gambling.
A psychiatrist and his wife—also a doctor—come to the hotel for a weekend break, and cannot help but notice the eccentricities of their host, who is perturbed when he discovers their professions.
An attractive Australian girl Luan Peters also visits, who goes on to have certain awkward interactions with Fawlty as he seeks to catch a non-paying guest Mr Johnson Nicky Henson has in his bedroom.
Basil is not altogether keen on a loud and demanding American guest who demands a higher class of service—and food—than Fawlty Towers is accustomed to providing.
Basil soon learns that the American guest will not tolerate any shenanigans. With no regard to Basil's blood pressure, a guest dies at the hotel and Basil and the staff are left with the unpleasant task of removing the body discreetly while the doctor staying at the hotel, Dr.
Price, waits for his sausages. Also, Polly and Manuel feed an elderly woman's pampered pet dog some extra spicy sausages after it bites them both.
Basil invites some friends for a surprise wedding anniversary party, but Sybil assumes he has forgotten their anniversary and storms off, leaving her husband and Polly, in disguise, desperately telling the others she is 'ill' The local health inspector issues a long list of hygienic aberrations which the staff must immediately sort out, or else face closure.
After Manuel's pet rat escapes from his cage and runs loose in the hotel, the staff must catch it before the inspector finds it first.
At the same time, they must try and discern which veal cutlets are safe to eat after one covered in rat poison gets mixed up with the others.
At first the series was not held in particularly high esteem. Clive James writing in The Observer said the second episode had him "retching with laughter.
One critic of the show was Richard Ingrams , then television reviewer for The Spectator , who wrote a caustic condemning piece on the programme.
Cleese got his revenge by naming one of the guests in the second series "Mr. Ingrams", who is caught in his room with a blow-up doll.
Gill theorised that the initially muted response may have been caused by Cleese seemingly ditching his label as a comic revolutionary — earned through his years with Monty Python — to do something more traditional.
In a list of the Greatest British Television Programmes drawn up by the British Film Institute in , voted for by industry professionals, Fawlty Towers was placed first.
It was also voted fifth in the " Britain's Best Sitcom " poll in ,  and second only to Frasier in The Ultimate Sitcom poll of comedy writers in January In , " The Germans " was ranked No.
One of British TV's greatest ever sitcoms, the central question of Fawlty Towers — why Basil Fawlty , the world's least hospitable man would go into hospitality in the first place — remains tantalisingly unanswered across 12 kipper-serving, Siberian hamster-hunting, German-baiting episodes.
A straight zero on TripAdvisor, the very layout of Fawlty Towers itself offers comedy gold as Basil John Cleese , his wife Sybil Prunella Scales , waitress Polly Connie Booth and poor, benighted Manuel Andrew Sachs manoeuvre themselves and the odd corpse around its dowdy interior without ruining anyone's stay.
Basil, needless to say, fails. Often and hilariously. In a list drawn up by the British Film Institute in , voted by industry professionals, Fawlty Towers was named the best British television series of all time.
John Lennon was a fan of the show. He said in "I love Fawlty Towers. I'd like to be in that.
Three attempted remakes of Fawlty Towers were started for the American market, with two making it into production.
The first, Chateau Snavely starring Harvey Korman and Betty White , was produced by ABC for a pilot in , but the transfer from coastal hotel to highway motel proved too much and the series never was produced.
It also failed to pick up a major audience and was dropped after ten episodes had been aired, although 13 episodes were shot.
Nine episodes were produced of which eight aired on American television though the complete run was broadcast overseas.
A German pilot based on the sitcom was made in , named Zum letzten Kliff, but further episodes were not made.
The popular sitcoms 3rd Rock from the Sun and Cheers in both of which Cleese made guest appearances have cited Fawlty Towers as an inspiration, especially regarding its depiction of a dysfunctional workplace "family".
Several of the characters have made other appearances, as spinoffs or in small cameo roles. In , Cleese played Basil Fawlty for the first time in 27 years, for an unofficial England World Cup song, " Don't Mention the World Cup ", taking its name from the phrase, "Don't mention the war," which Basil used in the episode " The Germans ".
In the video, Fawlty is running a restaurant called "Basil's Brasserie" while Manuel owns a Michelin-starred restaurant in London.
The character was seen taking over the management of the eponymous hotel from the BBC drama series Hotel Babylon , interacting with characters from that programme as well as other s sitcom characters.
The character of Sybil was used by permission of John Cleese. It was critically well received, subsequently embarking on a successful tour of Australia.
He visited Australia to promote the adaptation, as well as oversee its success. Melbourne was chosen to premiere the adaptation due to Fawlty Towers' enduring popularity in Australia, and also because it has become a popular international test market for large-scale theatrical productions in recent years, having recently been the city where the revised Love Never Dies and the new King Kong were also premiered.
Cleese also noted he did not believe the London press would give the adaptation fair, unbiased reviews, so he deliberately chose to premiere it elsewhere.
The documentary features interviews with all four main cast members, including Connie Booth , who had refused to talk about the series for 30 years.
In and alone, the original TV show was sold to 45 stations in 17 countries and was the BBC's best-selling overseas programme for that year.
Fawlty Towers became a huge success in almost all countries in which it aired. Although it initially was a flop in Spain, largely because of the portrayal of the Spanish waiter Manuel, it was successfully resold with the Manuel character's nationality changed to Italian  except in Spain's Catalan region where Manuel was Mexican.
The series also briefly was broadcast in Italy in the s on the satellite channel Canal Jimmy, in the original English with Italian subtitles.
In Australia, the show originally was broadcast on ABC Television , the first series in and the second series in The show then was sold to the Seven Network where it has been repeated numerous times.
Two record albums were released by BBC Records. The first album, simply titled Fawlty Towers , was released in and contained the audio from "Communication Problems" as "Mrs Richards" and "Hotel Inspectors".
Fawlty Towers was originally released by BBC Video in , with three episodes on each of four tapes. Each tape was edited with the credits from all three episodes put at the end of the tape.
A Laserdisc containing all episodes spliced together as a continuous episode was released in the U. It was re-released in , unedited but digitally remastered.
It also was re-released in with a special interview with John Cleese. A "Collector's Edition" is available in region 2.
