Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Becket (1964) [Gwendolen]: Commits suicide (off-screen) by stabbing herself in the chest, rather than be forced to sleep with Peter O'Toole; her body is shown afterwards lying on the bed when Peter discovers her. (Thanks to Eric)

TV Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • I, Claudius (1976) [Livia]: Dies of old age/natural causes, with her grandson (Derek Jacobi) by her bedside. (By this point in the miniseries, she was made up to look older than she actually was at the time.)
  • Tales of the Unexpected: Back for Christmas (1980) [Hermione]: Bludgeoned with a flashlight, dismembered and buried in the basement by Richard Johnson. She returns later as a vengeful ghost.
  • Agatha Christie's Poirot: Mrs. McGinty's Dead (2008) [Mrs. Upward]: Strangled with a scarf by Paul Rhys. (Thanks to Brian)
