Wallace & Gromit stuff

The UK trailer for the Wallace & Gromit feature film is available for download (there is no U.S. trailer yet). The voiceover is provided by none other than Tom Baker! (the web site of The Sun actually has a higher-res version online but I forgot where exactly I found that link)

On there is the first of apparently 12 new short films that will be released over the course of a year (and a downloadable trailer showing several bits from them).

I found a site which has downloads of EastEnders episodes, which is no big deal to me, but they also have downloads of other UK things, including skits from this year's Red Nose Day (March 11). One of them I simply must download: Rowan Atkinson in "Spider-Plant Man"! This site also intends to have the new Doctor Who episodes available for download, but one wonders how long that will last...

Just watched a couple hours of it -- the two which have Spider-Plant Man. Good stuff. Tom Baker does voiceover for a "Little Britain" sketch (which ends up as an odd sort of "Yes, Prime Minister" parody). I wish they had the Doctor Who parody with Rowan Atkinson from a few years ago still online ("The Curse of the Fatal Death"). I've heard of it but never saw it.
