Baker Bob was the 12th and final baker murdered by Piella Bakewell, the serial killer and the main antagonist in A Matter of Loaf and Death. His death appeared in the local newspaper after he was battered face-first and ends up lying dead in his bread dough (with his glasses as the back of his head). He is named after scriptwriter Bob Baker. His name was also mentioned in the short film A Close Shave and in the video game Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo. However, it is possible whether the character referenced in A Close Shave and Project Zoo is the same baker.
