Loved every second of it.

It helps if you’ve watched the actual show -because you can visualise the actual actors… I’m also really pleased that they had John Cleese commenting at the start of each show-about what we were about to watch/listen to, and they had Andrew Sachs -the actor that played “Manuel’, provide the parts in the episode about things you couldn’t hear -but needed to know for it to make sense. Well done for allowing people to relive these shows over and over again without actually watching them.

LOVE these episodes.

Love this TV series, so glad they turned it into audio! I can picture what's happening in my head and still have a good laugh. The Cleese intros are quite interesting too, learned a lot about the making and behind the scenes of the series and that episodes have a message for society. Manuel is also perfect for narration. Have listened over and over and overt and they're still great!

Edited versions slightly annoying.

Being a connoisseur of the show and knowing the scripts backwards, it was annoying that quite a bit was edited out from some episodes. Still the number one British comedy.

Does not translate well

I am a long fan of Fawlty Towers and know most of the episodes, but even still it was difficult to follow the audio version.
