All Creatures Great & Small | Series 4 Preview (Channel 5)

It is Spring 1940 and change is on the horizon for everyone in Skeldale House. James and Helen wonder when the right time might be to start a family, not knowing whether or not James will be called up to serve in the RAF.

Tristan’s absence is felt by all, but by no one more than Siegfried who attempts to hold the growing household, and himself, together as he braves this new world.

Mrs Hall and Helen’s friendship blossoms as they look to the future, and new trainee veterinary student Richard Carmody arrives, causing complications in the house.

In episode one, without Tristan, Skeldale House is busier than ever. The war hasn’t come to much, and James and Helen dream about the future, hoping that James won’t be called up.

A chance encounter with young lad, Wesley Binks, leaves James worrying if his dog, Duke, is being mistreated. James wants to ‘put the animal first’ regardless of the consequences.

Meanwhile Siegfried, who is missing Tristan, is repeatedly called out by experienced farmer Clifford Slavens and must learn that everyone needs support during hard times. When Mrs Hall takes a leap of faith, Siegfried offers his support.

All Creatures Great And Small returns Thursday 5th October on Channel 5.
