Two episodes from the classic BBC sitcom. In Mrs Richards, the titular lady (Joan Sanderson) is a little hard of hearing. She is also a very demanding guest: "the room is cold, the bath is too small, the view is invisible and the radio doesn't work." Things pick up for Basil, though, after he secretly wins on the horses, but then Mrs. Richards discovers she's lost some money. In Hotel Inspectors, Sybil drops a bombshell: there are some hotel inspectors in town. It's time for some courtesy, especially when the irritating Mr. Hutchison (Bernard Cribbins) reveals he has a wide experience of hotels. . .
