Saying that we are excited for the new six-part series of All Creatures Great and Small is an understatement. The reboot of the original BBC classic has had us hooked since its September debut.

The Yorkshire village is once again getting a makeover and being turned into the set for one of the most popular TV series of the past year. After being delayed by the pandemic, filming finally began for the new series earlier this year.

Shopfronts of the Yorkshire Dales village of Grassington are being transported back to the 1930s. The Devonshire Inn, a popular village pub, has been given a makeover into the famous Drovers Inn. Other shopfronts have been given the same treatment and have made the ever idyllic Grassington look like an old-fashioned sleep village.

The first series of the remake was one of Channel 5’s most popular shows last autumn, with viewing figures peaking at 5 million. Both critics and fans enjoyed the show, which follows James Herriot, a newly qualified vet from Glasgow, as he lands his first job in Yorkshire.

Herriot is a veterinary assistant to Seigfried Farnon. The series is based on a series of works of former vet Alf Wight, who wrote under the name of Herriot.
