After more than a decade off the television screen, it is very pleasing to see that Wallace and Gromit will be returning to BBC One late next year. A new programme Trouble At’ Mill features the cheese-loving inventor and his canine companion’s attempts to run a bakery. Apparently, 62 West Wallaby Street has been converted into a granary with ovens and robotic kneading arms. The pair have started home deliveries and built a windmill on top of the house to grind corn. Business is booming, but Wallace is distracted by a love affair.
It is good to see Wallace and Gromit back together again after the arguments and scandals that threatened to destroy their career, including Wallace’s participation in the infamous Edna Krabappel sex tape and Gromit’s drunken outburst on the David Letterman Show. I for one am glad they have put their past animosities aside to deliver another slice of subversive comedy.
