First broadcast in 1979, the second series of Fawlty Towers is every bit as hilarious as the first. It has remained a timeless example of comic writing, acting, and characterisation at its very best.
Communication Problems - The geriatric Major and the intermittently deaf Mrs Richards lead Basil ever closer to a nervous breakdown.
The Psychiatrist - A visiting psychiatrist seems to find Basil rather fascinating.
Waldorf Salad - An American guest demands quality service.
The Kipper and the Corpse - With total disregard for Basil's blood pressure, one of the guests dies in the hotel.
The Anniversary - Sybil flounces off to the golf course when Basil has apparently forgotten their 15th wedding anniversary.
Basil the Rat - Manuel insists that his pet rodent is a Siberian hamster. Basil is convinced it's a rat.
