A Touch of Class - S1-E1

Corrected entry: The newspaper boy and the couple in a hurry leave the lobby and turn left outside the hotel. However we see later that the drive is on the right as you leave the lobby. (00:03:45)

Correction: The paper boy could have left his bike to the left of the door. There is a car park to the left - the sign can be seen at the beginning of "Basil the Rat" and there is a little path to it from the left of the door. There is also parking to the right of the hotel. Also, the steps are much wider than the door. The only people who wouldn't turn even slightly left or right on exiting would be those who happen to have parked directly opposite the front door.

A Touch of Class - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Basil is examining the bricks, Polly is visibly laughing in the background.

Correction: No she isn't, it could well be a wry smile of "I told you so", considering the facts of the situation and that it adds authenticity to her claims against Lord Melbury.

Mrs Richards: And another thing. I expect to be able to see the sea.
Basil: [whispering to Manuel.] Deaf, Mad and Blind. [To Mrs Richards.] Yes, this is the view as far as I can remember... Yes, yes it is.
Mrs Richards: When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that.
Basil: But that is Torquay, madam.
Mrs Richards: Well it's not good enough.
Basil: Well may I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plain...
Mrs Richards: [interrupting.] Don't be silly. I expect to be able to see the sea.
Basil: You CAN see the sea! It's over there between the land and the sky!
Mrs Richards: I'd need a telescope to see that.
Basil: Well might I suggest you move to a hotel closer to the sea. Or preferably in it.
Mrs Richards: Now listen to me. I'm not satisified but I've decided to stay. HOWEVER, I shall expect a deduction.
Basil: Why, because Krakatoa isn't erupting at the moment?
Mrs Richards: Because the room is cold, the bath is too small, the view is invisible and the radio doesn't work.
Basil: No, the radio works. You don't.



When the Colonel first meets Basil, the same shot is used twice of the Colonel twitching.
