    1. A very slack book, put together with very little new information and using old newspaper clipping and the Voice over on the DVDs as the main source of information.A pity really, because "Spike and Co." by the same author is very good this one however was very paint-by-numbers. If it wasn't for interest in the topic, I probably wouldn't have got to the end and I'm someone who finishes ever book I start.


    2. What a strange thing. a biography where apparently the author has not interviewed or talked with anyone of the cast. Instead he has collected stuff from DVD extras, other books and newspapers. And to fill up the pages, there are detailed renditions of all the episodes.At least there were some nice photos.


    3. A Biography of a TV series is quite an unusual idea, a bit like the history of the India Tea Company except somewhat shorter lived. Some years ago I read a biography of John Cleese’s other great collaboration, Monty Python, not surprisingly called ‘Life of Python’ which succeeded as a biography due to the length of Python as well as the collaborations which it was born out of. ‘Fawlty Towers’ could have worked as a biography by concentration on the marriage of its writing team, John Cl [...]


    4. A paint by numbers book - very little depth here. As someone reading a book called "Fawlty Towers", do I need a detailed run-down of each episode? Especially since so much of that rundown is padded out by excerpts from the scripts (which on, at least one occasion, get repeated elsewhere in the book).There's no great insight into how Cleese and Booth developed the scripts, just a bald description of dates really. The biographies of the main players are largely lists of what they've been in rather [...]
