Does anyone happen to remember which CM show (blowed if I can think whether it was On The Hour, Day Today or Brass Eye) where a tourist to a governmental palace happens upon the incumbent dead and rises to the task of running the government?

It is/was - as with so much else in 'On the hour'!

It doesn't ring a bell @jjlothin, and OTH is the only one that I haven't fully listened to/watched, so I'm pretty sure it's that.

Highly recommend that you do have a good listen to OTH! Feeling too drained to do anything else in the heat, I've just had a quick trawl through and I've finally found the relevant (very) brief clip in SO2E04 at 16.10 - https://archive.org/details/s01e05onthehour/S02E04+On+The+Hour.mp3.

So many gems in OTH ... such as The Welsh at 13.44 of the same episode.

It was in an episode of On the Hour where a guy finds the President Carlos Menem slumped dead on his desk and takes over running the country.
