Basil Fawlty

About this character:

Character from popular comedy Fawlty Towers, played expertly by John Cleese.

One of the most popular and enduring comedy shows of the time that only ran for 12 eposides across 2 series, it is still one of the most famous roles that John Cleese has played and the one that people most often recall him for.

The sitcom was first broadcast in 1975 and is set in Torquay. Cleese actually co-wrote the show with his wife at the time who was Connie Booth who played the role of Polly.

The status of the comedy television series can be seen by the fact that it was voted first in a list of the 100 greatest british television programs ever by an industry body. It is rated as one of Britain's best ever sitcoms.
