Storyline

Basil is delighted when a member of the aristocracy chooses to stay at the Fawlty Towers, snubbing the normal guests who frequent the hotel. What Basil does not know, however, is that the man is not a Lord but a confidence trickster who attempts to steal his collection of rare coins. As Basil's desperation to keep such an 'upstanding' guest increases, he becomes increasingly tolerant towards the man's behavior, only to have the guest arrested in a police raid on the hotel.

Best Of Fawlty Towers
13 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

To me this is the best start to any show out there and it owns mr bean and the simpsons etc i like this episode because of the very fine acting and comedy from john cleese aka basil fawlty and also starring his wife sybil fawlty and the helpers polly and manual a french waiter from barcelona and of course lord malbury the talented conman who owns a couple of prisoners. Basil Fawlty is the greatest comedian or John Cleese as such out there for me that's the only reason this show is so good John Cleese Basil Fawlty although the Spanish waiter Manual does a great job well. This show owns everything on planet earth especially justice and freedom and hope
