About a veterinarian and his family who travel to South Africa from England to a game reserve. The trip was to initially release a wild animal back into the wild but then the vet falls in love with the animals and South Africa and decides to stay and buy into a partnership with Duplessi- the game reserve owner. The show is about their struggles and triumphs in running the game reserve.
Wild at Heart has risen from the ashes of former family dramas like Heartbeat to become the centre piece of ITV's Sunday nights and rightly so. With it's strong cast and writing combined with the beautiful African background it deserves it's place and the affections of the public.
However like all shows that are going into their 7th series things are going a little bit stale. There's only so many stories you can get out of Brits abroad and the finale's are getting more and more far-fetched.
My fear for this show is that it will be milked by ITV until people get sick of it and forget why they liked it in the first place. It was the same with Heartbeat and look how that ended up.
