Sybil

Thursday, September 23, 2010

"Fawlty Towers" was a classic 1970s BBC TV show written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. Only twelve episodes were produced but the show has consistently rated high on lists of best British TV shows. Sybil, Basil's long-suffering wife (or was it the other way around?) was played by Prunella Scales.

It was a good show, but I don't know if I could memorize all the names.
