* ''''Series/MidsomerMurders'': In "Four Funerals and a Wedding", it is raining heavily at the third eponymous funeral. So heavily that the rain washes away the dirt in the grave that is [[CrammingTheCoffin concealing the body of the next victim]]: the woman who was supposed to officiating at the funeral service.

Weather has always been used [[EmpathicEnvironment symbolically]] when it comes to death. When characters die it's often overcast. Even when all the characters are doing is visiting someone's grave, the sky will be cloudy and the colors will seem to be washed out. But quite often, when there's an actual funeral, it's always raining (though sometimes [[SnowMeansDeath it'll be snowing]]). Or precisely at sunset. Or at night. Anything but in the bright, shiny daylight.
