Man­ager Wayne lives in a car­a­van on site, new waiter Amos, from Ro­ma­nia, mixes up or­ders (rye bread be­comes fried bread), and who on earth de­cided this would be a good mar­ket­ing idea, un­less the aim was to de­ter any­one from ever set­ting foot in what has to be a new ver­sion of Basil Fawlty’s Torquay mad­house. Tonight, 10.30pm, Life­Style. Caro­line Quentin: A Pas­sage through In­dia: Caro­line Quentin tends to be an­noy­ing in her comic roles (think: Dorothy in Men Be­hav­ing Badly) but she’s al­to­gether more mea­sured when tack­ling an am­bi­tious trip the ge­o­graph­i­cally di­verse length of In­dia, via na­tional parks, deserts and plan­ta­tions. She has a game­for-any­thing charm and looks thin­ner — but In­dia does that to you. This is episode two (of three). Fri­day, 7.30pm, SBS.
