Airs Sundays at 8 p.m.: James Herriot’s adventures as a veterinarian in 1930s Yorkshire get a glorious new adaptation in All Creatures Great and Small, a seven-part series based on his beloved books. See the highly-anticipated new series Sundays, January 10 – February 21, 2021 on MASTERPIECE on PBS. Also, All Creatures Great and Small has been renewed for a second season!
Exciting newcomer Nicholas Ralph will make his television debut as the iconic vet who became renowned for his inspiring humor, compassion and love of life. Samuel West (Mr. Selfridge, On Chesil Beach) plays Siegfried Farnon, the wonderfully eccentric veterinary surgeon and proprietor of Skeldale House, who reluctantly hires the recently qualified Herriot into his rural practice.
The acclaimed new series is based on the beloved books of James Alfred Wight, published under the pen name James Herriot, which have held a special place in people’s hearts throughout the world since their first publication in the 1970s. The books introduced readers to the eclectic cast of farmers and townsfolk who lived and worked in the Yorkshire Dales in the 1930s.
