“Que tragedia” for Fawlty Towers.

Best known as Manuel,

Actor Andrew Sachs has gone, aged 86.

The iconic 1970s waiter,

In all twelve episodes,

With his exaggerated Spanish accent,

Brutally bashed by Basil.

Sometimes not so funny:

In the famous German episode,

Acid burns after a fire stunt,

And headaches after being hit,

With a faulty Fawlty prop.

The perfect comedy waiter,

Has to wait no more.

He was always remembered as Manuel,

Except at the end by he, himself,

Brutally bashed by dementia.

Qué sera, sera?
