After an exciting third series of All Creatures Great and Small, we are already getting impatient waiting for the Christmas special. The past years have been full of festive fun and All Creatures Great and Small Christmas special 2022 promises the highlight of Christmas once more.
With the latest series overshadowed by World War Two, the Christmas special will be interesting to see what it has in store for James Herriot and the gang.
The All Creatures Great and Small Christmas special will air on Friday 23rd December at 9pm. Watch a teaser in which James Herriot and evacuee Eva Feldman pay a visit to Mrs Pumphrey, after she calls for help with a kitten below
Helen and James will enjoy their first Christmas together as a married couple, and Trista will be on hand to annoy older brother Siegried Farnon we are sure.
Mrs Hall will be on hand and we imagine Mrs Pumphrey will be there to lend some entertainment to proceedings with her spoilt pooch for the All Creatures Great and Small Christmas special 2022.
What can we expect from All Christmas Great and Small Christmas special 2022?
James and Tristan were queuing to join to the war effort at the end of the third series. Having been racked with guilt over seeing other men joining up James decides to join as does Tristran, as always because he has something to prove to his brother. But will they be away from Christmas?
Teasing the All Creatures Great and Small Christmas special they said: “It’s Christmas in Darrowby and everyone is trying to make the most of things while the world is at war. A young guest (Jewish evacuee, Eva) brings some wonder, mischief and cheer to Skeldale house while everyone waits for important news.
“When Mrs Pumphrey heralds the arrival of a kitten in need of some extra care at Pumphrey Manor, James has just the person to take him under their wing. Siegfried is asked to pay a visit to an injured River just before a big race and makes an important discovery which Sebright Saunders uses as leverage to get River back on the racetrack.
“Siegfried risks compromising himself and everything he stands for, but Tristan has other ideas. When Mrs Hall runs into Gerald at the market and hears his news, she finds herself inviting him to a Skeldale Christmas party that hasn’t been organised.
“The rest of the house help her cobble together some guests and a spread – but will he come, and if he does, is Mrs Hall ready to tell him how she feels?”
The Christmas special usually sets up expectations for All Creatures Great and Small so we’ll see what happens. Mrs Hall will be wanting a distraction as her son is out at war, that’s for sure.
What is the air date for the Christmas special?
Last year, the Christmas special aired on the 22nd of December a few days before Christmas, and this year it is similar as it will be going out on the 23rd December at 9pm.
The Christmas special will set up the story for All Creatures Great and Small series 4.
