We all have our favorite Fawlty Towers episodes, but some bits never lose their ability to make us laugh no matter how often we’ve seen them. It’s those bits that have kept its audience coming back for more. Fawlty Towers celebrated its 40th anniversary this past year, and from all accounts it continues to gain fans year after year. With only two seasons and 12 episodes recorded, it makes it somewhat of a phenomenon.
Another marker on the trail for fans who travel along the Fawlty Towers journey, is the fact that the hotel that inspired the series is scheduled for demolition, and is being torn down shortly after the first of the year. There can never be another. That’s life and there will be no rapid prototyping the old place.
