In the British Film Institute's year 2000 poll, Fawlty Towers was named as top of the 100 most important TV programmes of all time...voted as outright winner by actors, directors, producers, writers and critics. The series is now part of the national consciousness and, with repeat audience figures which hold the BBC2 record, the result was hardly surprising.
Now, for the first time, here is the definitive tribute to arguably the most hilarious six hours in television history. Containing many unseen photographs and exclusive BBC interviews with John Cleese, Prunella Scales and Andrew Sachs, as well as the two series' directors, John Howard Davies and Bob Spiers, these pages will form an invaluable guide for all fans of the internationally acclaimed series.
This book goes into fascinating detail about each principal character's personal traits, their comedy highlights and their position within Fawlty Towers, as well as mapping the actors' previous and subsequent careers. Also included is an A-Z celebration of the principal guest stars who appear over the 12 episodes; this tracks their careers, fondly remembers the hotel visitors they play and, together with the regular cast profiles, provides a comprehensive directory of Fawlty Towers characters.
The book also charts the development of the show from its inspiration in the eccentric owner of a Torbay hotel where the Monty Python team were staying, to the production of the final episode, 'Basil the Rat', and looks at the influence Fawlty Towers has had, and continues to have, worldwide.
Complete with full episode reviews and packed with information, tributes and more than 150 pictures, Fawlty Towers - Fully Booked represents the ultimate guide to this comedy classic.
