Murder can be a funny business!!!

Each episode of this hilarious comedy series is written by a different writer and tells a completely different story. The only common factor between each episode is the terrific Dawn French.

Each episode tells the story of the events surrounding a different murder. Each week, Dawn French portrays a different character who is caught up in all the action, sometimes her character is the murderer, and sometimes she plays the victim.

With guest stars, such as Amanda Donohoe, Dexter Fletcher, and Sarah Lancashire, and writers such as Ian Hislop, this show is a real gem.
