‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: an homage to Kylie Minogue’s sacrifice in “Voyage of the Damned”?

Reader Jo writes to suggest that this moment from the latest Wallace and Gromit short, “A Matter of Loaf and Death” [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada] [Amazon U.K.]:

may well be an homage to “Kylie driving a forklift over the edge of a very long drop” in “Voyage of the Damned.”

The moment involves an enraged sheep aiming a forklift at her human mistress. Don’t worry: it makes sense in the Wallace and Gromit universe.

It seems to me that the homage is more toward the “get away from her, you bitch” bit in Aliens, but I could be wrong about that. What do you think?

Psst: You can watch “Loaf and Death” here, though it’s not strictly kosher. But for educational purposes, perhaps it’s okay to take a peek.
