Fawlty Towers

Welcome to the ‘Fawlty Towers’ page on ‘Bradley’s Basement’!

This is a fantastically brilliant and funny comedy series by John Cleese and Connie Booth.

‘Fawlty Towers’ is one of my favourite BBC TV comedies in the UK. It brings back cherished memories for me when I first saw it. I did my own version of ‘Fawlty Towers’ with Stephen, my best mate from school, when we were young. This is twelve episodes of superb BBC TV comedy that doesn’t fail!

I remember first seeing ‘Fawlty Towers’ when we were lent the original BBC VHS videos by my grandparents back in the 1990s. When DVDs came in the 2000s, there was one TV show I especially wanted to have on DVD and that was ‘Fawlty Towers’. My parents and I got both Series 1 and Series 2 of the series on DVD, with DVD special features in one set.

The DVD has been re-packaged over the years, most recently in 2010, with re-mastered episodes. The DVD is still a 3-disc set with Series 1 on Disc 1; Series 2 on Disc 2 and DVD special features on Disc 3.

Here on ‘Bradley’s Basement’, I’ve added my reviews on the twelve episodes from the ‘Fawlty Towers’ TV series. I’ve also added my reviews on other-related ‘Fawlty Towers’ items, including the Specsavers TV advert, ‘Fawlty Car’.

‘Fawlty Towers’ is a classic comedy TV series that will be remembered for years. It’s had its legacy, as they have a special restaurant performance in Cardiff Bay called ‘The Fawlty Towers Dining Experience’. They also had episodes performed on stage in Cardiff where I live, which I’ve really enjoyed seeing. It’s certainly something to enjoy when going on holiday and/or staying at a nice hotel.

Just remember one thing! “Don’t mention the war!”

Here’s a link to a list of who’s who in the ‘Fawlty Towers’ TV series.

    Afternoon Tim.

    I like what you’ve done with this page. I am also a big ‘Fawlty Towers’ fan. You will most likely have seen in that DVD/Blu-Ray/CD collection video that I made that I own the series on Blu-Ray. Despite its controversies, it’s usually a joy to view.

    I have since seen many of the cast members of other things. I have seen Prunella Scales in a sitcom called ‘After Henry’ with Joan Sanderson. I have also seen John Cleese and Prunella Scales in a couple of ‘Monty Python’ films which is of course his other most well known work.

      Hi WF92.

      Glad you like what I’ve done with my ‘Fawlty Towers’ page and that you’re a fan of the series. One of my ‘Doctor Who’ stories ‘The Space Hotel’ is based on ‘Fawlty Towers’. I saw John Cleese and Joan Sanderson recently in ‘The Great Muppet Caper’ on Disney+.

      I hope to revisit ‘Fawlty Towers’ again soon both on Blu-ray and on audio when I stay at a hotel for a future holiday sometime soon.

      Many thanks for your comments.

      Tim. 🙂
