Hotel owner Basil Fawlty's incompetence, short fuse, and arrogance form a combination that ensures accidents and trouble are never far away.
Andrew Sachs (Manuel) was paid damages by the BBC after a jacket was treated with acid by the special effects department to look as if it was on fire. It really did burn through to his skin and he still bears the scars.
Next contestant, Mrs. Sybil Fawlty from Torquay. Specialist subject - the bleeding obvious.
In several episodes, an arch saying "Woburn Country Club" is visible at the entrance to the driveway, revealing the exteriors' location, while the sign from the opening credits saying "Fawlty Towers" (or, in other episodes, "Farty Towels" or other variants) is never seen in any of the exterior shots.
In the titles sequence of each episode, some of the letters on the Fawlty Towers sign are usually mixed up or missing altogether. The signs appear as follows: 1. Fawlty Towers 2. Fawlty Tower 3. Fawty Tower 4. Fawty Toer 5. Warty Towels 6. NO SIGN 7. Fawlty Tower 8. Watery Fowls 9. Flay Otters 10. Fatty Owls 11. Flowery Twats 12. Farty Towels
