The complete and unexpurgated scripts of one of the most celebrated comedy series ever. Published in its entirety for the first time and illustrated, The Complete Fawlty Towers will appeal to the millions of fans who have suffered through endless PBS fundraisers waiting for the next episode—and anyone who has survived a package holiday tour. Fawlty Towers is the hotel of every traveler's nightmare. Basil Fawlty—ill-tempered, henpecked, and conniving—tries in vain to be master of his house under the disapproving and ever-watchful eye of his wife, Sybil. The hotel offers service by Manuel, the incompetent Spanish waiter whose feeble grasp of English makes for hilarious misunderstandings, and Polly, the unflappable chambermaid who is Fawlty Towers' only sane employee. Meals are scorched in the kitchen while adulterers consort upstairs and chaos reigns all around. For countless fans, Fawlty Towers is the best-loved bad hotel in the world, and with publication of The Complete Fawlty Towers they will all have a chance to relive its outrageous awfulness.

Industry Reviews

For anyone who has ever been reduced to tears by the antics of Basil and Sybil Fawlty and their chaotic hotel, this is the perfect present. Here are the complete screenplays of every episode, from 'A Touch of Class', first aired in September 1975, to the last 'Basil the Rat', broadcast in October 1979. Classics include 'The Germans' and 'The Kipper and the Corpse', but each and every scene relentlessly exposes the superb quality of the writing and the humour riddling every script. If you loved that terrible hostelry in Torquay, or you know someone who did, then here's a brilliant way to return. (Kirkus UK)
