In "Marple: Sleeping Murder", a mystery starring Geraldine McEwan as Miss Jane Marple,
Gwenda Halliday and Hugh Hornbeam were presented with a choice at a fork in the road: Hugh suggested Torquay, as there was a decent hotel located there.

Even if this had not been an alternate TV dimension because of Ms. McEwan's presences as Miss Marple (Joan Hickson is the official televersion.), then we'd have to throw it over into another world because of that description. In the main Toobworld, 'Fawlty Towers' is located in Torquay, and "decent" is too kind a recommendation.

(I realize that there are other hotels in the Torquay area, supposedly known as the "English Riviera". However, the God of Coincidence in Toobworld doesn't work that way. It's like when Charlie Pace mentioned a paper company in Slough during an episode of 'Lost'.)

O'Bviously, in that alternate TV Land, the hotel must have other owners instead of Basil Fawlty.....
