Wallace and Gromit back for Christmas
Tuesday 18 November 2008
Television Wallace and Gromit will return to the small screen this Christmas in a new film, A Matter Of Loaf And Death.
The 30-minute movie will be at the heart of BBC1's Christmas programming. The Aardman Animations film, in the tradition of "master of suspense" Alfred Hitchcock, sees Wallace and Gromit running a new bakery named Top Bun while a deadly "cereal killer" is on the loose.
The Coronation Street star Sally Lindsay voices the part of Wallace's love interest, Piella Bakewell. Wallace and Gromit made their TV debut in 1993 in The Wrong Trousers, which won an Academy Award. The show's creator, Nick Park, said he hoped to submit the latest film for next year's Oscars.
