It has been 50 years since Yorkshire vet Alf Wight, as James Herriot, put 30 years of experiences into a series of novels that gripped the imagination of many.
Yorkshire’s very own Grassington becomes home to the fictional village of Darrowby in the North Riding of Yorkshire, home to All Creatures Great and Small.
Set in 1937 and Glasgow whilst in the grip of depression. James Herriot, fresh out of veterinary college, moves to the Yorkshire Dales for work, and soon discovers that treating the animals is as much about treating their owners. Newcomer Nicholas Ralph makes his television debut as the iconic vet James Herriott, who became renowned for his inspiring compassion, humour and love of life.
The new reboot airs tonight (1st September 2020) at 9pm on Channel 5.
