James Alfred Wight, aka the real-life James Harriot has written a lot of books about his life as a vet. So we can expect a lot of stories coming our way in the future. The new season will be picking up from where the previous season left. James will be coming back from Glasgow as it is time for him to return from his parent’s house. He will have to make a choice now. To live with his parents in Glasgow and work locally with new technology and more opportunities. Or to live in Yorkshire where he has a life of his own.
At the end of season 1, we saw a lot of heartbreak with Siegfried, Tristan, and Mrs. Hall together at the dinner table on Christmas night. As Tristan asks what happened to the puppies, Siegfried offers a toast instead of answering him. Saying that he’s grateful for everything he has, especially the people infuriating as all of them.
