Siegfried Farnon (Samuel West), Tristan Farnon (Callum Woodhouse) and Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley) are also included in the shots.

The series, which filmed last year and is due out in spring this year, is a reboot of author James Herriot’s stories of a young country vet.

The books were previously adapted into films and a television series in the 1970s.
