The charming much-loved All Creatures Great & Small returns for its third series of veterinary adventures, romances, and life in the sleepy town of Darrowby, Yorkshire, with its rolling fields and colourful community.
Based on the immensely popular novels and life of veterinary surgeon and writer James Herriot (aka James Alfred Wight OBE), series one enchanted the nation and ranked as Channel 5’s number one British drama of all time. Now, the national treasure All Creatures Great & Small Series 3 inc. the Christmas Special: The Perfect Christmas arrives on DVD, alongside All Creatures Great & Small Series 1 – 3 Box seton 12 December courtesy of Acorn Media International following its run on Channel 5.
Picking up where series two left off, the infamously friendly and familiar faces of Darrowby return for more drama and delights. After being made a joint business partner by Siegfried (Samuel West – Darkest Hour), James pushes to take on more responsibility via the Ministry of Agriculture’s new bovine TB testing scheme, but its unexpected challenges risk pushing him to breaking point. As a potential Second World War looms, the Skeldale family must consider their purpose in Darrowby and beyond. There’s also the wedding we’ve all been waiting for on the horizon, as James (Nicholas Ralph – The Most Reluctant Convert) and Helen (Rachael Shenton – Hollyoaks), get ready to tie the knot.
Series one begins in 1937 as James Herriot, a newly qualified animal surgeon, moves to a small-town in Yorkshire to begin his first job with the irritable but kind veterinarian Siegfried Farnon. Once there, he quickly discovers that treating the animals is as much about looking out for their owners: there are plenty of people and animals to care for, challenges to meet, and life-affirming lessons to learn along the way.
