In a scene at the beginning of the episode, which featured Nicholas Ralph in his role as James Herriot, the on-screen vet could be seen drinking from a beer tankard prop that seemingly had no bottom. When the actor lifted the cup to take a 'drink' his face could be seen through the cup.

One person spotted the prop detail on Twitter and wondered if it was an error. They wrote: "Anyone else notice the bottomless fake beer tankard in #allcreaturesgreatandsmall?" 

However, despite the detail looking like an error, it's possible that the prop was made that way deliberately as many tankards made in the 1930s were designed with glass bottoms.

Meanwhile, viewers overall are thrilled about the heartwarming drama's return and have been sharing their praise on social media. A fan tweeted: "Only just watched the new episode of #AllCreaturesGreatAndSmall #ACGAS. It's so nice for it to be back. My favourite all-time program - nothing can beat it."

Fans are loving the show

The official synopsis reads: "Series three begins in spring 1939. Some big changes are happening at Skeldale and everyone has to learn how to adjust. James enters into a new stage of his life with Helen and at the practice, where Tristan is now also a qualified vet.

"After being made joint business partner by Siegfried, James pushes to take on more responsibility via the Ministry of Agriculture’s new bovine TB testing scheme, but its unexpected challenges risk pushing him to breaking point."
