Fawlty Towers Hotel Tapestry

by Lyvershop

Manuel is a well-meaning but dim, disorganised, and constantly confused waiter from Barcelona with a limited grasp of the English language and customs. He is constantly verbally and physically assaulted by his boss. He is afraid of Basil's quick temper and violent assaults, yet often expresses his appreciation for being given the position, despite Basil's abusive treatment toward him. On the other hand, whenever Manuel appears sad, Basil is depicted attempting to cheer him up, and even kisses him on the forehead for his aid in ejecting a particularly abusive guest, indicating that he holds at least some loyalty to Manuel.

Four iconic cars from four iconic British sitcoms. From top to bottom: • Joey Boswell’s Mark II Jaguar from Bread (with Joey’s mobile phone). • Del Boy and Rodney’s ‘Three Wheeler’ Reliant Regal Supervan from Only Fools And Horses. • Mr. Bean’s 1976 Mini 1000 (with door-bolt and padlock for extra security and Mr. Bean’s Teddy Bear). • Basil Fawlty’s 1972 Austin 1300 Countryman Estate. I don’t normally include people on my cars designs but that unreliable Austin did need a damn good thrashing!
