Just be re-watching these again on DVD after a bit of a break and noticed the hospital at the begining of The Germans is Northwick Park Hospital a long way from Torquay in North West London. Also the audio commentaries suggest many of series 1's location work (Andre's Restaurant, Basil's Austin 1300 Trashing...) was done nearby in the Kenton area so if I can ID/get around to it may take a few shots and put them on here too.
Mentmore Close in Kenton is where Basil thrashed his Austin 1300, I visited it about 10 to 15 years back, it looked pretty much the same.
Andre's Restaurant was located in Preston Road Wembley I believe.
Thanks Saint. On the coms John Cleese mentions the Kenton locations so they're something I'd think of checking out in the near future. I'll be watching Series 2 soon too but don't think they do much (if any) outside location work on the later one and will defo check these locations out soon too.
