“And then it stays throughout the series and you see their journey a little bit. She was really instrumental in a decision that Helen had to make actually.

“It is just a pleasure working with Patricia, she really knows her stuff and she is really great to work with and good fun so yeah I really enjoyed that bit.”

Rachel also teased how Helen feels being away from her family farm now she is married to James Herriot (Nicholas Ralph).

She noted: “She has got half an eye on the other farm because I don’t think she can do it any other way.

“Seeing Jenny Alderson [Imogen Clawson] grow up and take the reigns, she is proud of that and thinks it is great.

“But she will always have that maternal thing of checking if everything is alright and you definitely see more of that.”

The synopsis for episode two reads: “Siegfried has the bright idea of bringing in an experienced bookkeeper, Miss Harbottle, to bring method to the madness of the practice.

“She’s certainly efficient, but the cracks soon start to show – and a sick ferret only makes matters worse.

“Farmer Dakin is very attached to his injured, elderly cow, but Siegfried advises letting the animal go, while James and Helen arrive at a long-awaited decision.”

All Creatures Great and Small airs Thursdays from 9pm on Channel 5.
