Publisher's Summary

Four classic BBC TV episodes featuring a newly-added interview with John Cleese. The Kipper and the Corpse
When a guest dies in his bed, it's only the beginning of Basil's problems as he tries to hide the body and the dodgy kippers which may have led to the guest's demise.
The Germans
Basil tries to cope while Sybil is in hospital, but soon everything is in chaos and a deranged Basil does the funny walk for a group of German tourists.
Waldorf Salad
Quality customer service has never been one of Basil's strongpoints so, when an American guest demands the comforts of home, Basil's blood pressure reaches boiling point.
Gourmet Night
The cream of Torquay society turns out for a gourmet night. Expectations are high but so is the chef, leaving Basil to hunt down a suitable main course.

Still cant stop laughing

An absolute classic, British comedy at its best. Obviously a lot of the visual slapstick comedy is lost, but I have seen the episodes so many times that I feel like I am watching them in my head anyway. An absolute must have for any fawlty towers fan or anybody that like to laugh aloud. And haveing John Cleese do a little introduction to each episode is a nice touch, gives you a bit of history and background.

Good if you already know the TV programmes

I love Fawlty Towers and enjoyed listening to this. But there are an awful lot of visual jokes, and while Manuel's commentary helps, I think it's better if you have seen the TV programme as well.
