I've voted for the psychiatrist, after watching it again last night. It is very hard to choose a favourite from so many excellent episodes. Wouldn't be great if all the cast were in their prime again and they could do a west end stage production of Fawlty Towers. How fantastic that would be.
Fawlty Towers was and is a fabulous comedy.One of the best sitcoms ever,no doubt about it.I always feel though that with there only being 12 episodes I have absolutely watched it to death,and whenever it is repeated on TV I find myself switching channels.Every episode is a winner-and I mean every episode.So there is probably something to be said for doing so few episodes so as not to overcook the programme,but on the flipside there are so few to watch that, for me,I feel as though I've seen enough to last me a long time.
The Germans is a fave,as is Gourmet Night.I also like The Anniversary,out of all of the episodes that is maybe the least watched. :D

I believe John Cleese and Connie Booth were divorced sometime after the first series, and eventually wrote and performed in the second series about four years later. I wonder if they had stayed married would they done another couple of series ? Pity they broke up, especially for John's financial security, when you consider how he was taken to the cleaners in the divorce courts, by one or two of his subsequent wives.
Very hard to pick a favourite episode as one of my all time favourite programmes. The only episode I didn't think was quite up to the standard of the others was the Anniversary in series 2 in my opinion. Still good though, but the others were great
