Hotel owner Basil Fawlty's incompetence, short fuse, and arrogance form a combination that ensures accidents and trouble are never far away.
In episode Fawlty Towers: The Germans (1975), the opening credits show Northwick Park Hospital in London, supposedly setting the scene for Sybil staying there. The series is supposed to be set in Torquay, Devon.
I can't abide cruelty to living creatures.
Basil Fawlty: I'm a creature and you can abide it to me.
Sybil Fawlty: You're not living.
The layout of the hotel from interior shots would place the windowless kitchen hard against the front left of the building, as seem from the outside (if there were space for it at all). In exterior shots there is a large bow window here.
The Fawlty Towers hotel sign has its letters missing, or scrambled up to make new words. The sign presents a different error with each episode.
For German TV-runs the main-theme was changed to "funnier" music.
