Channel 5’s ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ Actor Says Skeldale House Will Be ‘Emptier’ In Series 4

After a dramatic ending to the third series of Channel 5’s All Creatures Great and Small, which saw popular character Tristan Farnon head off to war, fans are eagerly awaiting the next series.

But, will he feature in the hit series, or will we be left with an emptiness usually filled with Tristan’s hilarious antics?

The Christmas special that saw off December 2022 was filled with more World War Two plot lines, the main one being Tristan’s decision to join the army’s war effort.

This was back at the start of the year, so we are sure Shenton has an idea of what is happening now. But, it does lead us to ponder a life without Tristan – and it’s one we can’t cope with.

Whilst we all speculate what might happen in the new series, Nicholas Ralph, who plays James Herriott, has teased information about the new series in a new interview.

The Express reports that Nicholas said there’d be “More of the same… I mean they have now come together, they live together, and they’re very much a team.

“And I think it is just a flourishing of that and it’s a new stage in the relationship…so the flourishing of this slightly more mature stage of the relationship.
