All Creatures Great and Small, Season 3

Sun, 01/08/2023 - 9:00pm - 10:00pm

James Herriot is back with new creatures and crises in All Creatures Great and Small.

Season 3 premieres Sundays, Jan. 8–Feb. 19, 2023, at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV. Wedding bells chime and animal ailments abound in the highly-anticipated new season of All Creatures Great and Small. Season 3 begins in spring 1939 as James and Helen prepare to walk down the aisle. Should their wedding go off without a hitch—and what are the chances of that?—James will have a new wife and a new stake in the business to think of. The pressure is on, and while his scheme to participate in the government’s practice to test for tuberculosis in cattle will expand the veterinary practice, it could put James on the outs with local farmers.

Helen, too, will face new challenges, not least of them letting go of her old life and finding her new place within the welcoming, yet eccentric, embrace of Skeldale House.

Tristan, having passed his exams at long last, must now face the world as a qualified vet. Will he rise to the occasion? And, more importantly, will he win big brother Siegfried’s approval? He certainly will have Mrs. Hall’s unconditional support. But in Season 3, she may be ready to open up to affection beyond her work family…and cricket.

As war with Germany looms on the horizon, Skeldale House’s irrepressible but unpredictable proprietor, Siegfried, contends with painful memories of his own experiences during the First World War, when he served in combat with the Army Veterinary Corps. And Mrs. Pumphrey, the wonderfully eccentric owner of Tricki, returns with her pampered Pekingese.
