Anybody expecting to open this to find talk of the The Office?

Shoo. Oh, and while you’re a-shooing, make sure to bypass HMV and pick up a DVD boxset of the UK’s greatest ever comedy – Fawlty Towers.

UKTV has announced that it is set to broadcast previously unseen footage of the classic sitcom for an anniversary marking 30 years since it ended. John Cleese was famously inspired by a ‘Holidays From Hell’ experience he had himself on a wonderfully British holiday away to….. Torquay.

You can’t say it wasn’t self-inflicted.

The UKTV special will be hosted by John Cleese and will be joined by co-stars Andrew Sachs and Prunella Scales.
