The World of All Creatures Great & Small : Welcome to Skeldale House Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Welcome to the wonderful world of Skeldale House: the veterinary surgery and bustling waiting room for the locals of Darrowby village and their animals.

In this paperback edition we go even further behind-the-scenes of this much-loved TV remake; featuring more exclusive interviews, this edition takes us through the doors of the famous 1930s practice to discover the real-life inspirations for the TV remake of All Creatures Great & Small. Offering unique insight into the making of the hugely successfulshow, and paying homage to its impressive heritage, including Herriot’s bestselling memoirs and the long-running series, but also to the incredible backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales, this book is the ultimate celebration of a cast of characters – human and animal – who have been bringing us joy for over fifty years.

Along with exclusive interviews with the actors Samuel West, Anna Madeley, Nicholas Ralph, Callum Woodhouse and Rachel Shenton, this edition includes interviews with even more members of the cast.

In addition, you will get to know everyone from the vet advisor, the animal trainers and the animals themselves, to the director Brian Percival, the make-up artists and the production team.

Learn about their adventures on- and off-screen as they went about evoking the authentic experience of the house, the practice and its unforgettable setting.

This is the world of James Herriot and the Yorkshire Dales as you’ve never seen it before.
