That episode was not shown by the BBC for many years because of the depiction of Sadism & Torture in the episode. One of 2 episodes the BBC did not show until the late1980s( ‘Whom Gods Destroy’ was the other )
I first saw the two un-broadcasted episodes after hiring them from the Video Shop that was o the corner of South St & Palace gate in 1983.

I remember Bernard in a Fawlty Towers episode playing a feisty travelling salesman / guest mistaken for a health inspector. He punched Basil on the nose and knocked him down.

One of these times when I have to decide whether to put a sad emoji up or a like one, The sad one for his passing (RIP) but a like one for his part in the Bristol Bus Boycott that led to the creation of the Race Relations Act. RIP
