Did You Know.... that Agatha Christie, the
crime fiction writer, was born in Torquay in
1890 ?
Torquay is a seaside resort in England which lies at the northern end of Torbay in Devon and adjoins the
neighbouring resort of Paignton. It has a pleasant and mild climate, which supports its many palm trees.

And Did You Know....that while staying in Torquay at the
Gleneagles Hotel with the Python team in 1971,
John Cleese found
inspiration for
Fawlty Towers. Incidents during the Pythons' stay are
said to include the owner, Donald Sinclair, throwing Eric Idle's
suitcase out of the window, thinking it was a bomb. Cleese later
described the eccentric owner as, "the most wonderfully rude man I
have ever met", although Mr. Sinclair's widow has since said her
husband was totally misrepresented in the comedy. (Thanks to
Wikipedia for this information.)
