ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL

All Creatures Great and SmallThe charming, much-loved All Creatures Great and Small, based on the hugely popular novels of James Herriot (aka James Alfred Wight OBE), returns for a much-anticipated second series of veterinary adventures, budding romances, and life in the sleepy town of Darrowby, Yorkshire with its rolling fields, and colourful community. We follow the trials and tribulations and lives and loves of the locals, surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire dales, where farmers and vets alike savour a foaming pint at the end of a hard day’s work. After Helen Anderson (Rachael Shenton) jilted her intended, Hugh Helton (Matthew Lewis), at the altar, she, and James (Nicholas Ralph) can finally address their feelings for each other. But it can be tricky in such a close-knit community where not everyone takes too kindly to Helen’s decision. Prompted by James’ and Helen’s affections, Siegfried (Samuel West), Tristan (Callum Woodhouse) and Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley) also reflect on their places in the world, meanwhile a trip back home to Glasgow forces James to choose between duty and love… ‘The triumphant reboot of the classic veterinary drama based on James Herriot’s much-loved books returns’ – Saga.

The fightback against the Roman Empire, which stands at its mightiest, is on the horizon. Aulus (David Morrissey) is joined by his wife Hemple (Sophie Okonedo) who arrives to oversee his conquest of the Britons, bringing with her mysterios and dark forces. Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox) continues her journey to becoming the prophesied ‘chosen one’ and Mackenzie Crook’s 10,000-year-old Druid leader Veran is set to head down into the underworld for a glimpse of the future. As competing factions feud, whose prophecy will be fulfilled, and who edges closer to ruling Britannia? There are more throat slashing, drugged-up-druids, and plenty of romping as Britannia returns to rule TV. as capricious Celts and ruthless Romans march back onto our screens, bringing with them oodles of gore, game, and gusto. ‘Psychedelic romp plays out like Game of Thrones meets a grotty Glastonbury LSD trip – delirious good fun.’ – The Telegraph.
