That must be a different Basil and Sybil, surely? But the same, ridiculous James Buckley-on-the-happy-pills Manuel.

Similar question: Fraudulent Del is on the poster, but what of Inauthentic Rodney? Or Plastic Granddad?

Surely they are involved in some capacity.

Those aren't stars. They're asterisks. Each one referring to a fault with the restaurant.

Why not mention that this is a tribute show?

I would absolutely go to this if it was at all convenient. How could you not? It’s a 5 star event!

So many of these now they could have their own convention where lots of Basil, Sybil, Rodney and Del Comedy Players come together for conferences, panel discussions and stalls.

Nigel Planer has fallen on hard times.

Imagine if an actual, legitimate old school sitcom actor starred in one of these alongside the regular amdram dregs. I would love to see that.

Isn’t the idea of this that, in order to skirt copyright law, you have to spell it a bit wrong (“faulty” towers)? And if so, how is the previously posted load of knockoff merchants still trading?

We should be told.

The old ladies from FT appeared in an episode of Only Fools, of course. Maybe they'll weave that into the dining narrative somehow.
Yes, which is why my 13-year-old self wrote a fanfic.

theres no reason you cant use "fawlty towers" in your promo material as long as you make it clear its not official

It says it's a tribute show but i reckon its a bit dodgy. BBC worldwide could probably claim in court its misleading. But can they be arsed?

It would be great if we could organize a giant CaB meet up at one of these things, imagine it'd be a real hoot.

...On a special flight featuring a Fawlty tribute doing the famous 'unmade' episode that would have included a plane-hijacking en route to visiting Manuel in Barcelona!

The picture of Basil shouting "Dining Invite!" as he throttles Manuel is amusing. Just imagining him saying this out of context.

I wonder who they reference instead of Henry Kissinger. Although "Kissinger" has a lovely sound.

I have no words for this. No clue if it's appeared upthread, either. Regardless, horrifying stuff.
