I remember in the day going to buy the box set but the price was extraordinarily high, compared to the norm, so I never did. ☹

What was the Fawlty Towers episode that got banned, I missed it?
The episode hasn't been banned, I watched it yesterday on Netflix it is also available in uncensored format on britbox. As mentioned above in the thread, if you don't like it watch something else.

What spotlight ? By whom?

It did cause quite an upset in Ireland when it first came out, if I recall correctly. An excellent series.

Oh no, does that mean Magic Roundabout is going to be censored?

If that's deemed unacceptable can we cancel Brexit? On second thoughts maybe that occurred to someone in the higher echelons, hence it isn't banned.
