Channel 5 renewed the All Creatures Great and Small reboot for a second series after its debut drew in a record five million viewers, with fans praising the series for its re-imagining of the Yorkshire vet Herriot. 

Filming for All Creatures Great and Small’s second series was hit by delays due to the Covid pandemic, but production finally began earlier this year.

The first series focused on young vet James (Nicholas) who moves to Yorkshire to land a job as a veterinary assistant to Siegfried, played by Samuel West.

Callum plays Siegfried’s errant brother Tristan, while Anna Madeley takes on the role of housekeeper Mrs Hall.

Viewers have seen Rachel’s character form a blossoming romance with vet James, even leading her to flee her wedding during a Christmas special. 

December’s festive episode concluded with Helen and James still unable to reveal their true feelings for each other, even after she ended her romance with handsome landowner Hugh (Matthew).

Elsewhere widower Siegfried plucked up the courage to finally kiss Dorothy (Maimie McCoy) at the Christmas Eve party, while Anna was devastated when her estranged son Edward failed to turn up for the occasion as he’d promised.

Tristan remains in the dark about the fact that he failed one of his veterinary exams and isn’t fully qualified, and whether Siegfried will come clean about hiding the truth from his brother.

Sadly one cast member who won’t return is Dame Diana Rigg, who passed away in September 2020 aged 82, almost a year after filming for series one had wrapped.

Executive producer Colin Callender told the Radio Times that there are ‘no final decisions’ on whether her character Mrs. Pumphrey will be recast.
