Our guest is it will be on Christmas Day but we will now early Dcember for sure. However, for those in the USA they have to wait a bit. The series has not aired there yet.

Siegfried is delighted when Dorothy turns up and wonders if now is the time to throw caution to the wind.

Puppy problem

As the house fills with locals James receives a call from Bert Chapman who wants help with his dog. It is struggling to give birth.

James has to leave the party and is surprised when Helen asks if she can go with him. She wants to get away from all the wedding gossip.

Up at the Chapman’s James is faced with a puppy stuck in the birth canal, and Helen sees how much he loves being a vet. When it’s time to leave, James is horrified to discover the fog has descended trapping them high up in the Dales until morning.

James calls Skeldale and promises to get Helen back to Darrowby in time for the wedding. Meanwhile he is wondering if he will be able to suppress his true feelings for her!
