Season Three of ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ Streams Jan. 8 on PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel

The third season of Masterpiece’s “All Creatures Great and Small” will begin streaming on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel Jan. 8.

The series is based on the best-selling memoirs by veterinarian James Herriot. Nicholas Ralph stars as the young James Herriot who, in season three, is struggling to balance his growing responsibilities at the veterinary practice with his responsibilities as the newly wedded husband to Helen Alderson (Rachel Shenton). Helen, herself, faces difficulties letting go of her old life on the family farm with her father and sister and finding her new place within the walls of Skeldale House.

Callum Woodhouse returns as Tristan Farnon who has at last passed his exams and must now face the world as a qualified vet, while Anna Madeley returns as motherly housekeeper Mrs. Hall who is beginning to open herself up to a future outside of her duties managing the household.

As war with Germany looms on the horizon, Siegfried Farnon, the irrepressible but unpredictable proprietor of Skeldale House, played by Samuel West, contends with painful memories of his own experiences during the First World War, when he served in combat with the Army Veterinary Corps. And Patricia Hodge is back as Mrs. Pumphrey, the eccentric owner of Tricki, the pampered Pekingese.

Season three begins in spring 1939 as James and Helen prepare to walk down the aisle. With a new stake in the business, James is trying to expand the veterinary practice by joining a government program to test for tuberculosis in cattle. The initiative pays well, but it is looked upon with suspicion by the local farmers who run the risk of their farms being shut down if a positive case is found.
