The Null Device

the real Basil Fawlty

A former waitress at a Torquay hotel talks about the real Basil Fawlty, a chap by the name of Donald Sinclair:

"He went up and down the tables like a policeman, questioning the guests. He came across a set of teapots at a table for two. He realised because of their size they were meant for a table for four, and he asked the guests for a description of the waiter.

This happened when John Cleese and his wife Connie Booth were staying at the hotel, and the rest is history. Mrs. Sinclair, however, is none too happy with how things happened.
