Murder Most Horrid

Murder Most Horrid was a British television sitcom starring comedienne Dawn French[?]. A satire of television murder mystery programs[?] (such as "Murder, She Wrote,)" it featured French in a different starring character role in each episode.

She is told the work is dangerous, and given a special coat to wear that is equipped with various gadgets. She records a goodbye message to her mother in case she meets an ill fate, and puts it (still in a tape recorder) into a package and into the mail. As she completes her mission and kills the head of an opposing group, she doesn't realise that her coat was actually equipped to explode, kamikaze style. Walking home from a job well done, she explodes. Ironically, she is passing the mailbox[?] in which she dropped the package to her mother, and it too blows up, tossing the tape recorder through the air, across the street, and through the window of her mother's flat where it lands into her lap and starts playing: "Dear mum, if you're hearing this, I'm probably dead..."
