BBC UNVEILS LAVISH ADAPTATION OF THE TAUNTING OF ANDREW SACHS
THE BBC last night re-established its reputation for quality programming as it unveiled a lavish multi-million pound drama based on the taunting of Andrew Sachs.
Starring Sir Ian McKellan as the Fawlty Towers actor, the 12-part series begins in 1930s Berlin as the young Sachs and his family flee Nazi persecution.
Despite anti-semitism and the brutality of John Cleese, Sachs’s comic skills make him one of the best-loved actors in television history, before Russell Brand offers to masturbate him into the palm of his hand.
The series is being produced at Elstree Studios by the team behind Cranford, Little Dorrit and the BAFTA-winning BBC Four show Russell Brand Fucks Your Granddaughter.
