A Matter of Loaf and Death

I was refreshing my knowledge on Wallace & Gromit on wikipedia and found out that another short is being released soon called A Matter of Loaf and Death. It's suppost to be pretty much done and will be aired sometime this year.
It's nice to know that they'll still live on in their original medium too!

The story has Wallace and Gromit becoming bakers. In addition there is a murder mystery, and a new love interest for Wallace in the shape of bread enthusiast Piella Bakewell. Park expressed delight in returning the characters to British television, as "I don't feel like I'm making a film for a kid in some suburb of America — and being told they're not going to understand a joke, or a northern saying."[

  • Wait, it's out already for the Americans? What a rip-off for England!

  • Cracking viewing figures, Gromit! Animated duo Wallace and Gromit have topped the Christmas Day TV ratings with their latest adventure.

    Hot off the press, this BBC news story announces that the program "secured the biggest Christmas Day TV audience for five years", with an average of 14.3 million viewers, and this isn't even accounting people who will watch it via recordings.

    I personally loved it, very good small details and jokes (Yorkshire border, for example) - hopefully Telltale retain this touch in the games.

  • Well, Christmas day has passed and I've seen it now ^_^;;

    I think the reason for us seeing it after others was that the Beeb were holding it back for Christmas day - Wallace and Gromit on Christmas Day is sort of a tradition, after all!

    Really enjoyed it - and it's had the side-effect that it's pot me in the mood for the Telltale game now...

  • Wow, it was awesome! :D I really enjoyed it. Now I'm excited for Telltale's games :D Congratulations to Aardman for receiving 14.3 million viewers. That is amazing!

  • Do you really think it was more disturbing than "The Wrong Trousers"? I think Feathers McGraw is so much more upsetting with him being completely silent and his creepy looks.

  • I was dissapointed too. I haven't seen the whole thing, because I am pretty sure it hasn't aired in America yet, and som of it is on Youtube.

  • @Shauntron said: A Cosworth engine in an Escort? That is baffling and awesome to me. You win this round, european Ford...

    oh yes they were awesome, however with the power of the engine, and the lack of safety in an escort (1 star euro ncap) it is basically death to be within a close proximity of one let alone inside it

    wiki link for the hell of it
