Fawlty Towers : a worshipper’s companion
"This guide book addresses itself to those ardent admirers of Fawlty Towers who have long since left the innocent stage behind when Manuel seemed merely funny, Polly only benevolent, Sybil just acrimonious and Basil plain crazy. It proposes to probe deep, deeper and still deeper into the texture of this work; to reveal intricate codes, hidden staircases and secret chambers; to interpret runes and unravel psychological mysteries. It is a spiritual adventure into the black hole in the centre of a speculative universe in constant expansion; a Gnostic, hermetic, alchemical experiment of rare complexity and eerie fascination. Last but not least, the book seeks to finally put an end to the ludicrous assumptions that there were only twelve episodes in all, that the only Jesus that ever lived died on the cross, and that Hitler committed suicide in the bunker."
