- There are several things that make that fawlty towers is a success. First and foremost, it is a series of very high quality, as with his tales and his great karaktergalleri manages to engage all the danes – both children, young people and adults. It is impressive, for it is certainly not an easy genre. It, that looks bubbly and easy, is far from ’easy’ to fix - quite the contrary. It requires immense precision all the way around and make high demands to both the writers, actors and team. This, combined with the fact that we have been able to hit down in a market where we are the only one who delivers a series such as ’fawlty towers’ is to make the series into something unique, sounds it from her.
