Fawlty Towers – A Worshipper’s Companion
Script to the 13th episode of Fawlty Towers and much more. Limited quantities available only in U.S. through PBS stations.
In 2004, Swedish author and classical musician Lars Holger Holm published Fawlty Towers – A Worshipper’s Companion. This 222-page treasure-trove goes way beyond
trivia to feature the condensed biographies of the show’s key
characters, analysis of all of Basil Fawlty’s neuroses and a look at
the connections between the occult and Fawlty Towers.
Perhaps the most intriguing part of the book is the chapter about the
never-broadcast 13th episode that the author states he saw six years
ago in 1999. A copy of the script to the mystery episode, “The
Robbers”, is included in the Fawlty Towers – A Worshipper’s Companion. This hard-to-put-down book is a must-read for any true Fawlty Towers fan!
Fawlty Towers – A Worshipper’s Companion currently is only available in the United States in limited quantities through PBS stations as a pledge thank-you gift.
