For which he said sorry and Andrew Sachs graciously accepted.
But not the sort that makes morally dubious prank phone calls to Andrew Sachs.

  QUARTET   1 hr 38 mins   WHY WE CHOSE IT - The first movie directed by Dustin Hoffman. It’s practically must-see stuff for someone who grew up watching his awesome performances for 45 years.   ONE SENTENCE PLOT -- Legendary English opera diva Maggie Smith moves into an idyllic old folks’ home for (apparently well-heeled) retired classical musicians in the English countryside, and is forced to deal with her ex-husband who left her for another woman many years earlier, while distracted by the partying shenanigans and wishful thinking of her fellow guests.    SUBTEXT – Ego begets regret. Conquer regret, and you conquer your future.   CAST -- Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtenay, Maggie Smith,  David Ryall, Michael Byrne, Andrew Sachs; Director: Dustin Hoffman; Writer: Sir Ronald Harwood. Based on the Harwood play. (We list actors by the quality of their performance in the given movie, not their star billing). WARNINGS - Rated: R PG-13 - Correctly Rated - British seni ...
Dustin Hoffman's first turn at directing a film and with a dream moviola cast: Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Pauline Collins, Michael Gambon, Billy Connolly, Andrew Sachs and Trevor Peacock. This is a version of Roland Harwood's much-loved play, set in retirement home for ageing musicians where preparations for the annual gala are thrown into chaos by the arrival of opera diva, Jean (Maggie Smith). One reviewer called this film 'a shed-load of fun'. And one can see how much everyone involved enjoyed the thing. Pauline Collins steals the film from everyone - a lovely, fragile performance - but there are so many memorably sweet and poignant moments.
Faulty Towers - The Dining Experience Having played numerous sell out shows at Galway Comedy Festival over the last two years Basil, Sybil and Manuel return with their feast of comic delights. Some familiar, some off the cuff but all with a “Faulty” seasoning and a guarantee to keep you laughing all the way to the desert. Basil is manic, Sybil domineering, and Manuel – of course – is hopelessly language-challenged. Everything that can go wrong, does, in some beautifully controlled chaos. Just don’t mention the war! Featuring all the best gags and a great meal, Faulty Towers….the dining experience is a loosely-scripted, pitch-perfect '13th episode' of the TV series which develops the characters made famous by John Cleese, Prunella Scales and Andrew Sachs. Faulty Towers - The Dining Experience Sunday 21st April Salthill Hotel 8pm, €45 (includes 3 course dinner & show) Tickets from Salthill Hotel reception & www.roisindubh.net only

You know what ? I was very vocal about condemning Russell Brand and Wossy over the radio 2 scandal about Andrew Sachs granddaughter , YET , they have appeared to have brushed aside what seems to be years and years of cover ups and " oh well these things happen " with Savile and more presenters it seems.hypocrisy and double standards of the highest order.
Richard Coyle, Claire Foy, David Suchet, Andrew Sachs and Charles Dance were all exceptional, as expected.

Fawlty Towers is a British sitcom produced by BBC Television and first broadcast on BBC2 in 1975 and 1979. Twelve episodes were made (two series, each of six episodes). The show was written by John Cleese and his then wife Connie Booth, both of whom also starred in the show. The first series was produced and directed by John Howard Davies; the second was produced by Douglas Argent and directed by Bob Spiers. The series is set in Fawlty Towers, a fictional hotel in the seaside town of Torquay, on the "English Riviera". The plots centre around tense, rude and put-upon owner Basil Fawlty (Cleese), his bossy wife Sybil (Prunella Scales), a comparatively normal chambermaid Polly (Booth), and hapless Spanish waiter Manuel (Andrew Sachs) and their attempts to run the hotel amidst farcical situations and an array of demanding and eccentric guests.

Russel Brand, you absolute hypocrite. I bet Andrew Sachs is jumping for joy right now!
Manuel is a fictional character from the BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers. Played by Andrew Sachs, he is an iconic character in British comedy history. He reappeared for a small sketch with John Cleese in We Are Most Amused in November 2008.
