Film Deaths[]

  • Shrek 2 (2004); animated) [Fairy Godmother]: Disintegrated into a cloud of bubbles when her spell ricochets off of the King's (voiced by John Cleese) armor.
  • Coraline (2009; animated) [Miss Spink/Other Miss Spink]: Playing a dual role in the two realms, "Other Miss Spink" is killed (along with Dawn French) when a swarm of bat-winged dogs lured over by Dakota Fanning collides with them at high speed ("Miss Spink" survives the movie.)

Television Deaths[]

  • The Young Ones: Time (1984) [Helen Mucus]: Crushed to death when a medieval knight suddenly bursts in, causing the door to fall on her. (Played for comic effect.)
  • The Comic Strip Presents: GLC: The Carnage Continues (1990) [Margaret Thatcher]: Robbie Coltrane impales her with a flagpole.
  • French & Saunders: The Exorcist (1990) [Assorted characters]: Commits suicide by jumping out of the window during an exorcism, in a parody of Jason Miller's death in The Exorcist. We only see her going out the window; neither the fall nor the body is shown.
  • French & Saunders: Thelma & Louise (1993) [Louise]: Commits suicide by driving her car over the edge of a cliff, in a parody of Susan Sarandon's death in Thelma & Louise. Unlike the original, Jennifer discovers that Dawn French (parodying Geena Davis' role) has jumped to safety at the last second. The scene ends with a freeze-frame of the car falling through the air, while Dawn waves goodbye from the top of the cliff.
  • French & Saunders: The Phantom Millenium (1999) [Porq-Dim Summ]: Stabbed in the stomach with a lightsaber by a "Darth Maul" look-alike, in a parody of Liam Neeson's death in Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace. She dies in Dawn French's arms shortly afterwards. (Jennifer is made up to look like Liam Neeson, complete with false beard.)
  • French & Saunders: French & Saunders Actually (2003) [Jennifer Saunders]: Dismembered with a chainsaw (along with Dawn French) by Felicity Kendal, after Dawn and Jennifer do a parody of Felicity's TV series Rosemary & Thyme. Various body parts are shown flying through the air. (Played for comic effect.)
  • The Stranger: Episode 2 (2020) [Heidi Doyle]: Shot in the head (off-screen) by Paul Kaye. Her body is shown in a later episode when Siobhan Finneran discovers her.
  • The Pentaverate (2022 mini-series) [The Maester of Dubrovnik/The Saester of Dubrovnik]: Playing a dual role, the Maester of Dubrovnik is found dead, along with his lackeys, with their throats slit. The Saester of Dubrovnik, his sister, is informed of his death and accidentally shot by one of Mike Myers' characters, but she survives.
