How sad to hear that he has died. He will never be forgotten for his wonderful performance as Manuel and I'm afraid I shall never forgive JRoss and that pretentious bloke with all the hair for that spoof phone call about his granddaughter.

I once heard an interview in which he was asked what his wife thought of Ross and the so-called joke and he replied very quietly "She hates him".

RIP

Completely agree Eileen - Ross should never have been allowed back on the BBC under any circumstances - or any other broadcasting network Evil or Very Mad

Sad to witness the passing of a great actor and a much treasured British institution Sad

Here is a rather nice clip from an Oz TV programme:

Very sad news. Fawlty Towers has to be one of the best comedies ever and I never tire of watching it. R.I.P.

Yes,listening to some of the clips, played on the radio the other day, reminded me of that.

Manuel was a great comic creation and Andrew Sachs played him beautifully

R.I.P Mr Sachs.
