It’s Spring 1940 and with Europe at war, the community in Darrowby are pulling together more than ever before. With Tristan away serving, Siegfried and James bring in some extra hands to help around the practice: highly efficient bookkeeper Miss Harbottle, and student vet Richard Carmody. Happily married Helen and James begin to think about their future despite the looming possibility that James could be called up to serve.

There are seven episodes in season 4.

All Creatures Great and Small is a Playground production for Channel 5 and Masterpiece in association with All3Media International. It returns on the same night as Miss Scarlet and The Duke, which will also begin its fourth season.
