The Government Inspector

The corrupt Mayor of a small Russian town in the middle of nowhere is horrified to discover that he and his crooked cronies are to be visited by a government official, travelling incognito. Plots to bribe him with wads of roubles and vodka spiral into an epic frenzy.

Adapted from Gogol’s satirical and eccentric comedy, the plot inspired one of Fawlty Towers’ most iconic episodes, and this adaptation of the original truly sparkles. The result is chaotic mayhem and masses of comedic delight. Unmissable!
