Hotel owner Basil Fawlty's incompetence, short fuse, and arrogance form a combination that ensures accidents and trouble are never far away.
By a remarkable coincidence, the character of Siegfried Farnon in another BBC series, All Creatures Great and Small (1978), was based on a vet called Donald Sinclair, just as Fawlty was based on a hotelier called Donald Sinclair.
You'll have to forgive him. He's from Barcelona.
In some episodes, the boom mic becomes visible and the cameraman corrects this by, among other things, zooming in on the scene.
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
