Great nostalgic listen!
Discovered this while researching Fawlty Towers for my own podcast. Really enjoyed revisiting these excellent series via the podcast and then with a full rewatch of both series. Thanks Guys!
An excellent listen
Source material not withstanding, this is an excellent podcast. Both contributors are knowledgeable, critical and their research into the storylines, actors and context is comprehensive. What is most appreciated is that compared to many similar podcasts, these gentlemen avoid shrieking with laughter at their own cleverness. Listening late at night is therefore much more pleasurable.
Papers arrived yet
Delighted to find this and rekindle my love for the show with two knowledgeable hosts who reasonably debate the plots and scenes. Enjoyed this especially during lockdown. My favourite section is at the end where they go through the supporting cast and their careers since Fawlty towers.
