Newcomer Nicholas Ralph plays the young vet who is taken under the wing of
renowned veterinary surgeon Seigfried Farnon (Samuel West: Darkest Hour,
Mr Selfridge) in the stunning countryside of 1940s Yorkshire.
As James settles in to rural professional life he must prove himself and his
credentials under Siegfried's watchful eye, all whilst trying not to be distracted
by Siegfried's unruly younger brother Tristan (Callum Woodhouse: The Durrells;
Cold Feet), stern housekeeper Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley: Deadwater Fell;
Patrick Melrose), and beautiful farmer Helen Alderson (Rachel Shenton:
White Gold; Hollyoaks) with whom romance may be on the cards...

Rigg (Game of Thrones; Victoria), Nigel Havers (Chariots of Fire;
Coronation Street), Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter; Ripper Street),
Philip Gascoyne (The ABC Murders; Peaky Blinders) and Naomi Radcliffe
(Three Girls; Coronation Street), our vet heroes must handle everything
from horses with injured hooves, feline mix-ups, milk-fever, Mrs Pumphrey's

for every animal lover!
