Scenes for the second series of Channel 5’s remake of All Creatures Great and Small started being filmed in Little Germany yesterday, (16 March).
Bradford was transported more than 80 years into the past with the arrival of a vintage car and a blue Routemaster bus, plastered with an advert for McVities and Price biscuits.
Star Nicholas Ralph, was spotted suited and booted to play the charismatic James Herriot as his character returns to his hometown in Scotland.
Elsewhere extras were dressed in their own period attire as they strolled down a smoky street.
The six-part series will be filmed on location in the Yorkshire Dales this year.
The first series of the remake – based on Thirsk vet Alf Wight’s James Herriot books – was screened last autumn and proved a hit with viewers, achieving peak viewing figures of five million.
Filming for All Creatures Great and Small's second series was hit by delays due to the Covid pandemic, but production finally began earlier this year.
The first series focused on young vet James who moves to Yorkshire to land a job as a veterinary assistant to Siegfried Farnon, played by Samuel West.
Callum Woodhouse plays Siegfried's errant brother Tristan, while Anna Madeley takes on the role of housekeeper Anna Madeley.
The original BBC series, based on a series of books by former vet Alf Wight, who wrote under the pen name of Herriot, aired from 1978 to 1990, with Christopher Timothy as the Dales vet and Robert Hardy as his boss.
One cast member who won't return is Dame Diana Rigg, who passed away in September 2020 aged 82, almost a year after filming for series one had wrapped.
