James Herriot is a vet in Yorkshire, England, during the 1940's. He is assigned to the practice of Siegfried Farnon, who (together with his mischievous brother Tristan) already have a successful business. James undergoes a variety of adventures during his work, which are just as often caused by the characters of the county (including the Farnon brothers) as the animals in his care. Written by

Christopher Timothy was originally offered the part of Tristan Farnon but he said he would only appear if he could play James Herriot. See more »
[orders Hodgekin to throw rings for her Pekinese, Tricki Woo. He throws one feebly]
Oh, a little further than *that*, Hodgekin!
[he throws it miles]
Not into the rose bed, Hodgekin! We wouldn't want Tricki to get pricky-paw!
*What* was that? What was that, Hodgekin?

This television series is something special. It makes me laugh, brings a tear to my eye and puts a lump in my throat, often all in the same episode. It shows people, the main leads of James, Seigfried, and Tristan, (Helen too), as special, and who are lovable in their strength and eccentricities. This show is so special that I almost don't want to own it, whether on video or dvd. Why? Because possessing them might make them less special. I want to discover them again, be excited that they are on the PBS stations that I get, and feel blessed to visit with my old friends again.
Whenever I feel that I don't fit in this modern world, and that 'All Creatures Great and Small' was made for me alone, I know that I must have friends worldwide that I've never met, because we all love this show!
