It's a nice inclusion, but fans should be careful not to let Booth's participation be the defining reason to pick the set up. There's some particularly good writing in the last three episodes, "The Kipper and the Corpse", "The Anniversary" and "Basil the Rat", which are larger in scale than the rest of the series. The other cast interviews are on the redundant side, especially Cleese's; the best part of the featurette is hearing about the experience from some of the smaller, peripheral roles, which is a change of pace from the rest of the extras.

In 'A Touch of Class', Basil's quest for a better class of clientele seems to have succeeded with the arrival at the hotel of Lord Melbury (Michael Gwynn).

The Kipper and the Corpse' finds Basil and Manuel trying to dispose of a dead body without any of the guests noticing. Check in with Basil Fawlty (John Cleese, Monty Python films), the sharp-tongued, short-tempered hotel manager plagued by dead guests, hotel inspectors and his domineering wife, Sybil. The DVD box set also comes with a small eight-page colour booklet containing photographs and a bit about the background of the show. The answer to all these questions can be found in this, the complete and unexpurgated scripts of “Fawlty Towers”.Zavvi - The Home of Pop CultureThe classic BBC comedy comes to Blu-ray for the first time, starring John Cleese, Prunella Scales, Andrew Saches and Connie Booth. In 'Waldorf Salad', some newly-arrived American guests' request for transatlantic cuisine does not go down well with Basil in the kitchen. You'd think at some point, he'd stop putting any faith in Manuel's ability to understand him, or stop trying to hide certain things from Sybil, but he never does, resulting in the various predicaments all feeling alike.

This special edition marks the 30th Anniversary of one of the greatest situation comedies British television has ever seen. The third disc has all the additional material, the best of which are new interviews with John Cleese, Andrew Sachs and Prunella Scales. Manuel bears the physical brunt of most of Basil's violent outbursts, whereas Polly slyly deflects or defuses Basil's complaints. The other new feature is 2009 Interviews (38:32), which gathers Cleese, Prunella Scales, Andrew Sachs, Series 1 director John Howard Davies, Bernard Cribbins (the spoon salesman, "The Hotel Inspectors"), Geoffrey Palmer (Dr. The collection is broken down as follows: BASIL THE RAT includes 'Basil the Rat,' 'The Anniversary', and 'Communication Problems'.The Germans' sees Basil failing to cope with a fire drill and the arrival of some German guests while Sybil is in hospital - 'Don't mention the war - I did once, but I think I got away with it!

Gourmet Night' sees the Fawltys' attempt to throw a cultural evening fail when their chef hits the bottle.

and these last three episodes are no different, but they introduce additional layers that subtly change the angle of the comedy.

Denis Norden has probably bought the rights to all the good out takes, surely there are more and better? The primary issue is the slightly washed-out colors and the consistent fuzziness, although there are a few odd episode quirks as well, like some weird video edge halos around Cleese in the first episode that are black instead of white, or frequent flashes of glowing blue in "Gourmet Night" (there are similar flashes of other colors in future episodes). Finally, in 'The Wedding Party', Basil gets the wrong impression when some old friends of Polly (Booth)'s arrive at the hotel. The Germans' sees Basil failing to cope with a fire drill and the arrival of some German guests while Sybil is in hospital.

There is also one easter egg (2:28), which is also from the old DVD and shouldn't take too long to find.Remember to watch the opening credits of each show to spot the creative misspellings on the hotel sign (our favorite: "Fatty Owls").
