Fawlty Towers catch up
Fawlty Towers is a British comedy sitcom written for television and produced by the BBC. It revolves around the daily comings and goings at the fictional Fawlty Towers hotel in the Southern English town of Torquay, and the attempts of Basil Fawlty (portrayed by comedian John Cleese), his wife Sybil (Prunella Scales), chambermaid Polly (Connie Booth) and the Spanish waiter Manuel (Andrew Sachs) to run the hotel while facing bizarre situations and eccentric guests. The two seasons of Fawlty Towers were broadcast in 1975 and 1979, and since then it has become one of the most loved and iconic British comedy shows on TV. In 2000 the British Film Institute handed the show the number one spot in their list of the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes.
