The glorious Yorkshire Dales are at the heart of James Herriot’s cherished classic All Creatures Great and Small, which returns to Channel 5 for a second series from Thursday 16th September at 9pm. Within the Dales National Park, the historic village of Grassington plays a central role as ‘Darrowby’ village. Supporting roles go to a handful of beloved natural beauty spots and historic landmarks in the surrounding valleys, little changed by time, all of which played a part in bringing Herriot’s charming 1930s world to life. Catch up with the first series on My5.
As Series Two opens, three months have passed since the end of Series One. A trip back home to Glasgow presents James with a dilemma that will mean choosing between the people he loves. As Helen and James navigate their feelings for one another, Siegfried, Tristan, and Mrs Hall are also forced to consider their places in the world, while James must decide between supporting his family or following his heart.
