All Creatures Great and Small's Nicholas Ralph on The Yorkshire Vet obsession

Ralph said he drew lots of inspiration from watching The Yorkshire Vet, which also airs on Channel 5.

He said: “I watched quite a lot of The Yorkshire Vet before filming started because as much as things have progressed in the veterinary world, medicines and things, procedures, a lot of it is still the same.

“I was watching even just to get little titbits, just by watching those shows you can pick up little gems along the way.

“It’s just knowledge isn’t it, just trying to fill out the knowledge of that kind of world always helps.

“And it’s just a good show, it’s a fun show, it’s quite enjoyable.”
