Fawlty Towers Podcast - Episode 4 - The Hotel Inspectors

The Hotel Inspectors – Episode 4

The Hotel Inspectors was the fourth episode of Fawlty Towers and sees Basil pushed to the limit by a demanding guest who just might be here to assess the premises. In this podcast Gerry and Iain suspect one another of not being the spoons salesmen they claim to be.



This episode featured an appearance from national treasure Bernard Cribbins as TV-reserving spoons salesman Mr Hutchinson and noted film actor James Cossins as wine aficionado Mr Walt.


The episode was, like the rest of the series, written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. It was directed and produced by John Howard Davies.


The Hotel Inspectors was released in 1975. It is 29 minutes long and originally aired on BBC 2. The show can be viewed on Netflix in the UK and Ireland and is available on DVD around the world.
