After seven series, the wildlife drama set in South Africa has been put out to grass. But not before vet Danny Trevanion gets one more chance to gaze into the middle distance with a worried look on his face that could mean he’s spotted a hyperventilating giraffe. Or that he’s swallowed the hyena’s worming tablets by mistake.
In this two-hour finale poachers have stolen the family’s three-legged cheetah and his mate, prompting Du Plessis to hatch a rescue plan.
He persuades Rosie’s fiancé Dylan, a boy nobody but her likes, to fly down to Zimbabwe to rescue the cheetahs and thus get into Danny’s good books. The plan goes wrong, obviously. Also what Dup hasn’t told anyone is that he’s just discovered he has a potentially fatal heart condition and needs bed rest rather than adventure. Nick Borraine, Danny Keogh, Colin Moss, an elephant and a lioness all guest-star.
Feature-length finale of the African-set wildlife drama. It's New Year's Eve and Alice has returned to Leopard's Den, but the stress of combining work with caring for a baby is causing tension between her and Danny. They then receive devastating news - two cheetahs have been taken by poachers. With only days until the wedding of Rosie and Dylan - who isn't endearing himself to anybody - tempers are already running high when Du Plessis finds out his heart is weak. Realising he must use his remaining time to help the family, he persuades pilot Dylan to fly them all to Zimbabwe to rescue the stolen animals in the hope that the trip will convince Danny his future son-in-law is worthy. Stephen Tompkinson, Dawn Steele, Lucy-Jo Hudson and Hayley Mills star. Last in the series.
