Fawlty Towers special! by voxpops on 8 March 2009 10:04pm
 
Did you hear? You Brits are getting a Fawlty Towers special with unseen footage from the original series and a reunion between Cleese, Sachs, and Scales. (I guess Booth wasn't interested) I hope it's released on DVD at some point so that we North Americans can see it. No word on a air-date though (I'm not doing all your work for you ;-))

I hope it's released on DVD, too! I'd be willing to bet that ol' Cleesey will use this as an excuse to issue a new release of the FT series with the extra footage included.

Greedy bastard. LOL

Ooooo, great! I wonder when that is!

I bet she wasn't, I wouldn't want to be in the same room as my ex husband either!

Thanks, voxpops! Some of us Brits on site regularly take the standard Brit TV listings 'Radio Times' or 'TV Times' so will pick it up from that.

But we owe you for pointing us there already!

Cleese gets along well with his first two exes, by his own account. He mentioned having had lunch with Connie sometime late last year. They have a child and grandchildren in common; they ought to be friendly. I've heard she's a very private person, though, and doesn't want to be in the public eye.

Ohh fair enough then...makes life easier for everyone if they get along.

Can certainly endorse comments about Connie Booth: she won't be interviewed or photograped. In the biography of Prunella Scales, in the 'Fawlty' Towers chapter, she's the only one not to comment.

Fine - she is indeed a very private person. It's on record (you might all know) she's been married to John Lahr (biographer of Joe Orton & son of bert Lahr - the Cowardly Lion?)- for over 25 years.

Yes, John Lahr is Bert Lahr's son.
