Fawlty Towers, The Complete Collection (Remastered)

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


The British sitcom by which all other British sitcoms must be judged, Fawlty Towers withstands multiple viewings, is eminently quotable ("don’t mention the war"), and stands up to this day as a jewel in the BBC's comedy crown. Fawlty Towers was famously inspired by a seethingly rude hotel proprietor John Cleese encountered whilst away filming with the Monty Python team. Unwittingly, Donald Sinclair became the blueprint for Basil Fawlty, the epitome of frustrated, social climbing middle-Englanders. Now digitally remastered.

Customer Reviews

A Gin and Orange......

Truly great comedies really are few and far between but this really has stood the test of time. The word genius is banded around far, far too often in this day and age but THIS fulfils every criteria required for being bestowed the masterpiece tag. I'm afraid Paul Addison I agree with my fellow reviewer. You have no idea what comedy is. Having said that, it's all down to personal preference. The fact that you don't like it is fair enough (albeit rather odd) but to give this national treasure one star based on your personal preference I would suggest is not what reviewing is all about. Love it or hate it, it's greatness cannot be denied and every time I watch this, like many many other people I laugh like a drain. Utter genius and I, like most professional reviews give this the 5 star rating it deserves.

Poor paul

Poor paul addison, it seems you dont really understand humour or you havent got a personality, what a fantastic bargain series, tre british comedy

British humour at it's best!

John cleese's role as an ilmannered and bad tempered hotel manager plays host to hilarious gags and punchlines making this undoubtedly one of many shining examples of British comedy.
