The New Statesman is a sitcom that aired on ITV from 1987 to 1994 spanning four seasons and three specials. The series satirizes the UK's Conservative Party from the late 80s/early 90s.
Jim Henson's Creature Workshop (sic) was credited on screen for Special Effects Mask in "Who Shot Alan B'Stard?", the 1990 special that aired between the second and third seasons.
A dream sequence in the special involved a man's face being torn away from his skull by a creature in his bed. The effect included the flesh being pulled and stretched until it was removed, revealing his muscle structure beneath.
