All Creatures Great and Small (TV Series 1978
Peter Davison remains as Tristan, but his appearances become more and more sporadic until he makes a welcome return in Series 7. It does lose its edge. It contains all 7 series plus 2 Christmas specials. And having a pint with the cast between shooting on location showed us how authentic the series is. Every Living Thing All Creatures Great and Small 5 James Herriot has captivated millions of readers and television viewers with tales of the triumphs, disasters, pride and sometimes heartache that filled his life as a vet in the Yorkshire Dales.
All Things Bright and Beautiful is the beloved sequel to Herriot's first collection, All Creatures Great and Small, and picks up as Herriot, crack now newly married, journeys among the remote hillside farms and valley towns of the Yorkshire Dales, caring for their inhabitants---both two- and four-legged. In some cases, the television programmes are not related to the book content at all! Stories are rehashed one or two shamelessly redone and become more ridiculous and trivial. Hardy is utterly brilliant, gives a dazzling performance that is a wonder to watch, a masterclass in how to act. The pre-war stuff is clearly superior to the post war stuff. Davison's Tristan is irresistible too. I personally prefer the first 3 series which were set before the war and they were written along the lines of the books.

Here is a book for all those who find laughter and joy in animals, and who know and understand the magic of wild places and beautiful countryside. Yes, I am really pleased to have got this set. Years ago, I went to the original surgery in Thirsk when James Herriot Jim Wight and Siegfried Donald Sinclair were still in practice. The series also captures the essence of the Yorkshire Dales: the lovely green hillsides, wide vistas and individualistic spirit. Written by The original series of 41 episodes was a beautifully accurate version of the Herriott books. . Visiting that area is like stepping into the Herriott stories, as we discovered in 1982 and many subsequent visits.

I think I would say I love this series despite Christopher Timothy. Before the war, there's a real sense of a story building, the war coming, new treatments on the horizon, James getting married and having children, becoming a partner. Overview: All Creatures Great and Small All Creatures Great and Small 1 For over 25 years-- since All Creatures Great and Small was first published-- readers have delighted to the storytelling genius of James Herriot, the Yorkshire veterinarian whose fascinating vignettes brim with the wonder of life, keygen animal and human. There are 89 episodes including the specials so enough here to keep you going for ages. The series is also inspirational, for it is, implicitly, the story of the birth of scientific veterinary medicine.
Musing on past adventures through the dales, visiting with old friends, and introducing scores of new and amusing character--animal and human alike--Herriot enthralls with his uncanny ability to spin a most engaging and heartfelt yarn. Four-year-old Jimmy Herriot, Humphrey Cobb and his little beagle Myrtle, Norman the book-loving veterinary assistant, and many more new faces join old favorites among the green hills of Yorkshire, as James takes an unforgettable voyage to Russia on a freighter with 383 pedigreed sheep. I am 55 by the way. Superb acting is expected in a British production, and this is no exception, as the actors do an amazing job of capturing the essence of the even the minor characters. The foundation remains though: Christopher Timothy's James, and Robert Hardy's Siegfried. Siegfried gets a new Rover, that seems out of time to me, and we also get the new character Cameron Buchanan.

Also after the war, Helen, James's wife, is unfortunately played by a different actress Lynda Bellingham instead of Carol Drinkwater , and that doesn't quite work as well. And if Linda Bellingham hadn't taken over the part of Helen Herriot from Carol Drinkwater, I am sure there would have been complaints. Brian Sinclair Tristan was in reality extremely ill, and was hospital bound. I think he plays the character rather inconsistently, bumbling about like Stan Laurel one minute, arrogant and supercilious the next. This falls into the class of heartwarming Sunday-night viewing occupied by Call the Midwife and Doc Martin these days, and if you like that sort of thing you're bound to like this.

But Robert Hardy makes up for any lack in Timothy's performance — in spades. These new stories provide a grand finale to the wonderful books that began with all Creatures Great and Small. He gets a job at the practice of Siegfried Farnon, who together with his mischievous brother Tristan already have a successful business. We have tried to introduce the children to it and they are getting used to them very slowly, maybe they have to be a bit older yet. By the very end of the series it rather morphs into some bland amalgam of Heartbeat, Call the Midwife and Only Last of the Summer Wine. There's an obvious divide though that I hadn't noticed at the time I first watched this series.
