By the end of Season 3, all of Wight's books had been televised, and it was thought that the series would have to end. However producer Bill Sellars persuaded Wight to let the scriptwriters devise new stories as long as the scripts were approved by him and remained faithful to the spirit of his books.

    Cringley House, the building in Askrigg that was used as the filming location for the exterior of Skeldale House, was for many years a home for vulnerable adults. However new owners opened it as a bed-and-breakfast and tea-room on 23 March 2013. Jim Wight, son of Alf Wight (aka James Herriot) was due to perform the opening ceremony but was unable to attend because the roads to Askrigg were blocked by heavy snow. The building was renamed Skeldale House in honour of its connection with the programme.
