The new series of the critically acclaimed veterinary drama ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ which features a score by Alexandra Harwood will start airing on Channel 5 from Thursday 16th September at 9pm. The series set in the 1930s is based on the James Herriot novels about a vet working in the Yorkshire Dales and stars Nicholas Ralph, Anna Madeley, Samuel West and Patricia Hodge.
‘Series two picks up in spring 1938, meaning three months have passed since the end of Season 1. James’ parents are overjoyed when he’s offered a position at his old mentor’s forward-thinking practice in Glasgow. When he returns to the Dales, James is reminded of how much he loves the place and the people – and thinks of one person who it would be worth staying in the Dales for. Since Helen Alderson left Hugh Hulton at the altar, she has kept a low profile and James has given her the space she needed. But the pair find themselves forced together again when neighbouring farmer Rob Benson’s sheep are in trouble. Inspired by his time at the Glasgow surgery, James pushes Siegfried to let Tristan do more veterinary jobs so that they can take on more small animal cases at Skeldale House. Elsewhere, Tristan tends to a budgerigar whilst Mrs Hall uncovers a difficult truth.’
