All Creatures Great and Small was back on Channel 5 for the uplifting Christmas special. Everyone at Skeldale House spent the day with Mrs Pumphrey (played by Patricia Hodge) after saving Tricki Woo from an illness. Tristan (Callum Woodhouse) faces the next phase of his veterinary career after passing his exams and Woodhouse spoke to Express.co.uk about what comes next.
James Herriot (Nicholas Ralph) spent his first Christmas with Helen Alderson (Rachel Shenton) following his emotional proposal.
The festive day was made even more special when Tristan received the exam results he had been waiting nervously for.
He surprised his friends and family by announcing he had passed the second time around, and his brother Siegfried (Samuel West) was thrilled.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, actor Woodhouse said his character will now face crossroads.
He said: “That’s the predicament we leave him in. He spends all the episodes being stressed and nervous.
“And when the results come in, he’s got his love life on his mind.
“If we do get to do season three it will be interesting to see him start official work as a qualified vet.
“And his love life, the idea of a long term relationship, has rubbed off from James to Tristan.”
Tristan was disappointed to find out his love interest Maggie (Mollie Winnard) was engaged to someone else.
She invited him for one final fling before she tied the knot, but the young vet could not help but feel sad.
There is a chance his opinion on romance could change in upcoming episodes, as he is keen to find a long term partner.
The star also teased how the impending Second World War could impact the characters’ lives in the future.
He said: “It would be impossible to ignore [the war] and we would be doing a disservice.
“Our version is set up as more of a voice to the women than the original [BBC] series.
“Leaving the farms in the hands of the women, it would be amazing to shine a spotlight on that.”
With this in mind, Maggie’s wedding plans could be put on hold if her husband-to-be is called away.
Fans are also worried James and Helen will have to postpone their big day if James goes off to war.
The series has not yet officially been renewed for a third season, but fans are excited to see what could happen next for Tristan.
The adaptation is based on the books by the real Yorkshire vet, Alf Wight, who used the pen name, James Herriot.
As there are plenty of books to use as source material, it is hoped the series will continue for years to come.
Actor Woodhouse discussed some of his favourite moments from the series so far, including the Christmas special.
He said he enjoyed the fact that the food served by Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley) was all real.
The star added: “Half of what gets cooked we get to eat, home economics come in and cook this amazing dinner backstage.
“The Christmas special was being around the buffet for an entire week, it was just heaven, and by the end of the week we could really have at it.”
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the series so far, with Livie saying: “I love every second Tristan and James were on screen together!”
All Creatures Great and Small is available to watch on My5 and Acorn TV and will air on PBS in the US.
