Tame family entertainment - but very watchable
4 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A vet goes in to practise in pre-war North Yorkshire and experiences all kinds of scrapes, misadventures and funny situations before being accepted by the locals.

Based on the best selling books of James Heriot and with the fantastic Yorkshire countryside as a backdrop there isn't a great deal to go wrong and, indeed, very little does.

This is "play safe" film making from another planet! Nevertheless it does give a sense of time and place (pre war England) and delivers small laughs and a plot development of sorts.

Safe Sunday afternoon fare and no better or worse than the entertaining (but equally safe) TV series that followed.
