Just when James is settling into life in the Dales, Siegfried’s younger brother Tristan arrives bringing his own unique brand of chaos. James also visits wealthy widow Mrs Pumphrey and her poorly Pekingese Tricki Woo.

Just when James (Nicholas Ralph) is settling into life in the Dales, Siegfried’s (Samuel West) younger brother Tristan (Callum Woodhouse) arrives bringing his own unique brand of chaos to Skeldale House.

Recently returned from Edinburgh Veterinary college Tristan announces he’s just passed his final exams. Siegfried is delighted and instructs James to take Tristan on his rounds to put his theory into practice. James obliges but starts to feel threatened by the new arrival when Tristan goes out of his way to impress his brother.

James gets one over on Tristan when they visit wealthy widow Mrs Pumphrey (Diana Rigg) and her poorly Pekingese Tricki Woo. The dog takes an instant shine to James who bags himself an invite to the annual Pumphrey party, while Tristan is forced to stay at home.

Helen (Rachel Shenton) is there, and a smitten James plucks up the courage to ask her out, only to discover that she’s already spoken for.

Back at Skeldale, Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley) works out that Tristan has been keeping secrets of his own. When the truth finally emerges, Siegfried goes berserk and relations between the brothers hit an all-time low.
