- Bonus episode from Season 11, "Amsterdam Kill"
The fact that Murder, She Wrote has entered its tenth season is a daunting one, considering that at least 198 characters have been murdered since the show signed on in 1984. Clearly undaunted by this grisly statistic is mystery novelist and amateur sleuth Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury), still as clever and feisty as ever -- and still no person to tangle with when a homicide has occurred. Dividing her time between New York (where she holds down a teaching job) and her home turf of Cabot Cove, ME, Jessica also manages to squeeze in side trips to Hong Kong, Canada, and other far-flung locales. Season ten finds our heroine at a race track, backstage at a Broadway show based on one of her novels, and a mob-controlled restaurant, tackling mysteries ranging from the "suicide" of her editor to the disturbing disappearance of her beloved nephew Grady (Michael Horton). And as always, Murder, She Wrote is haven for prominent guest stars, many of them colleagues of Angela Lansbury from her MGM days -- including the ubiquitous Mickey Rooney.
