All Creatures Great and Small Series One and the Christmas Special
Fresh out of Glasgow Veterinary college, James Herriot (Nicholas Ralph) follows his dream to become a vet in the magnificent Yorkshire Dales. He soon discovers that treating the animals is as much about treating their owners and the Dales' farmers are a tough crowd to please. At Skeldale House James gets to know his newly formed dysfunctional family; his chaotic and erratic boss Siegfried Farnon (Samuel West), his wayward brother Tristan (Callum Woodhouse) and the shrewd housekeeper Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley) who is endlessly steering the ship. When local farmer's daughter Helen Alderson (Rachel Shenton) attracts James' attention, he finds another, more enduring reason to stay in the Dales.
